My flight from Doha to Colombo was a evening flight, five hours extended which followed the 1st sector from Athens to Doha. So, I chose to fly Enterprise Class – and I usually do in such instances – as I cannot resist to a gourmet dinner up in the air as properly as a seat-bed at 40,000 feet! The AIRBUS A320/321 is one particular of my favored airplanes possibly mainly because I haven’t been flying on it as a flight attendant and I certainly think about it as the masterpiece of industrial airlines!
Sri Lanka is an amazingly hospitable nation. The locals appreciate their homeland and want to convey this feeling to any visitor by means of their fantastic client solutions. To be truthful, this was clear to me even from the 1st Welcome Aboard through boarding in Doha. I do have 13 years aviation hands-on knowledge and I can reassure you the flight attendants’ smile was definitely genuine.
THE Very first WELCOME
The truth is, that you in no way have a second opportunity to 1st impressions and Sri Lankan Airlines truly had a wonderful accomplishment on that! The flight attendants did not only warmly welcomed me but have been also neat, with lovely hair and fantastic uniforms – like a piece of art – wearing superb, standard Sri Lankan Sarees.
I chose s single seat subsequent to the window for an apparent purpose. Maximum Privacy is the essential and my decision was general appropriate. For the duration of the evening, the seat transformed into a comfy bed with a cozy fluffy pillow and a appropriate to size blanket –not a youngster blanket of 1,20m (which is the usual alternative in airlines).
Suitable subsequent to my bed there I had my individual “bedside – table” which is very practical specially for me that I commonly curry so considerably stuff in my handbag (crèmes, earphones, sleeping masks, socks, chargers, tablet and so forth.)
Sri Lankan Airlines gives a valuable amenity kit as properly, with a sleeping mask, socks and mini solutions. You got me I honoured them all!
THE ENTERTAINMENT Technique
I usually travel with my personal tablet with me, as a Netflix fan. Nevertheless, I appreciate checking what’s on board. So, I spent some time exploring the in-flight entertainment method, so I can have an opinion more than right here. There was a wide wide variety of motion pictures and series, each from new or classic productions, lots of music options as properly as fascinating documentaries. You can also use their usb outlets for charging your device which is a big neccessity, specially through extended hauls.
But I shouldn’t neglect the most crucial: WiFi Onboard!
The menu was wonderful and complete of standard Sri Lankan and Asian meals. I chose Vegetarian, a Thai style Vegetable Curry which was a ideal match with my glass of wine. This was a great intro to all the upcoming curries I tasted all through the week in Sri Lanka.
The one particular factor that I fell in appreciate with even though, was the standard dessert Bibikkan. It was like a cake produced out of coconut and flour and you truly require to taste it if you ever travel to Sri Lanka!
The client service was truly higher-level, the crew was there for all my small requests –although I do not commonly hold the flight attendants busy as I am one particular as well and I deeply know these midnight duties.
Lastly, regardless of the reality that it was a evening flight and all the passengers have been basically sleeping, I skilled a quite premium service. I recognize this as an benefit of the Sri Lankan Airlines obtaining persons in your group that definitely appreciate what they are performing is the most worthwhile factor for a enterprise! Properly Performed!
SEE YOU Subsequent TIME SRI LANKAN AIRLINES!
