Having been a frequent flyer for the last 28 years for business and leisure, I have got used to accepting all levels of service quality (good and bad!) from Airline staff.

With the city overview of Mardin in Turkey, published by us today, we have just come to the end of the second phase of the Journeyed Cities of Ibn Battuta.

A few weeks ago I was travelling to Karachi to attend the first Global Halal Congress. Since I was taking Sri Lankan airline I had to transit through Colombo. At the Afew weeks ago I was travelling to Karachi to attend the first Global Halal Congress. Since I was taking Sri Lankan airline I had to transit through Colombo. At the Colombo Airport, I went to the familiar prayer room that I knew from my previous travels to Colombo. To my surprise, the room was closed. On inquiring from the officer there, I was told that it had been moved to a new location at the other corner of the 1st floor. There I was pleasantly surprised to find a much bigger and well kept room for males and I assume the female prayer room which was next to it was as big and clean.
