Normal Sudoku rules apply. Each coloured region is a killer cage i.e. the number given in the top left is the sum of the digits in the killer cage. Digits do not repeat in a killer cage.
Additionally, each killer cage could act as a thermometer, that is there is a path within each cage that is strictly increasing. For example, a cage of three with 1-3-9 is valid, but 1-9-3 is not. In the case of 2x2 boxes, this picture illustrates the rules.
This is part of a group of "Thermal Killer" sudokus. There are 3 different puzzles, and a bonus puzzle which requires the solutions of the 3 puzzles. This was inspired by Eggr's Hidden Clone series
This is the bonus puzzle. Use the letters from the previous puzzles. Also, only cages with more than 2 cells have totals given.
Lösungscode: The word given in the white cells (all lowercase)

@Strosahl Thank you for letting me know! I hadn't taken that into consideration before. Will keep that in mind.

@Rollo @cdwg2000 @Errorandy I had made a mistake in the first part, switched the A and I, the puzzle should work now. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Extremely sorry for this oversight. I have made changes to part 1, the A and I were switched.

you are right, there is a mistake...
@Madmahogany: please, check the positions of A and I in part 1
