Step aboard as I take a flight (in economy class) from Frankfurt to Sri Lanka to get a taste of Sri Lankan airlines meals that are served inflight. SriLankan airlines is a member of the One World Alliance with their central hub at Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport.

WHAT WAS ON THE MENU?

Frankfurt to Colombo – Chicken Thai Red Curry with Chinese Vegetables and Steamed Rice served with a Mixed Vegetable Salad and an Orange Cheesecake.

Colombo to Frankfurt – Five Spice Chicken Curry with Pasta Salad and Almond Cake.

WHAT WAS GOOD

The airline offers the famed EGB Ginger Drink which is traditionally used as an appetiser in Sri Lanka,  it’s actually made from real ginger and is non-alcoholic. It’s definitely worth asking for on your next flight.

The salads and desserts on my meal trays were very nice too and the cabin crew were super friendly and ever so accommodating.

NOT SO GOOD

I felt that the main meals lacked in quality and flavor though. The meals were slightly plain and very stock standard — definitely a mediocre meal.

WOULD I EAT ON SRILANKAN AIRLINES AGAIN?

I loved the service that was provided, but clearly, their inflight meals need a little more care and attention.
