Step aboard as we take a flight (in economy class) from Frankfurt all the way down to Sri Lanka to get a taste of Sri Lankan airlines meals that are being served inflight. SriLankan airlines is a member of the One World Alliance with their main 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!

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

NOT SO GOOD

All of our main inflight meals were definitely not up to scratch! The meals were slightly plain and very typical of your usual boring old airline meal tray. There was nothing special about the main meals at all everything was just standard if not slightly below that.

WOULD WE EAT ON SRILANKAN AIRLINES AGAIN?

The jury is out on this one. We loved the service that was provided but clearly their inflight meals need a little more care and attention. Please Note – We flew as guests of SriLankan Airlines yet our opinions are as always our own!
