comment How do oil prices impact flight prices?
@pnuts: Any time someone makes money, that means there was a margin added to an otherwise lower cost, so yes, costs go up in an absolute sense. But in the larger picture, stability of prices is worth a lot more than that rise in cost brought on by the risk mitigation measures (same as with insurance and other forms of risk management). Otherwise airlines wouldn't do this, and their ticket prices would fluctuate rapidly.

comment (Where) Can I go to a “sleeper” cinema?
I have broadened the question a bit, to a) better match some of the existing answers, and b) provide an answer that's more useful to me. I'd enjoy visiting such a cinema, it needn't be the exact same one in the photo. Thanks to everyone who has answered so far!

comment Is it possible to buy a computer monitor and HRM watch in Colombo, Sri Lanka duty-free airport shops?
@JohnZwinck: I suppose, but that violates the spirit, if not the law, of "duty free" in most jurisdictions (where the assumption is that the purchaser will export the purchased goods, therefore making them exempt from local taxes). Likely such laws don't exist, or simply aren't enforced, in a place where they sell appliances in a "duty free" store--or the term "duty free" may simply not be regulated like it is in some markets.

comment How do oil prices impact flight prices?
most airlines make their fuel surcharge according to the highest possible fuel price they faced -- I don't imagine this to be true. Do you have a source that says this? I expect they base their price on their projected fuel price, which is usually very nearly set in stone (or at least capped), thanks to futures markets.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about travel.
