We were allowed to print a boarding pass at home but the team seemed caught off guard that we didn't have the airport issued boarding pass. It was questioned multiple times. Also the boarding process took a long time due to an additional search of carry on luggage even after we had been through security. Just seemed like an inefficient process.

Once i got to my seat i was seated by a smelly person and the flight attendant did move me to another seat upon my request.

Trying to get on the flight was frustrating because there’s no organization! The thing i did not like was that they made us put the cover to the window up like 30 minutes before landing and the sun was directly in my eyes! I tried to put it down half way and the flight attendant made it a problem.

Decent entertainment system and choices.

Poor quality headphones - jacks are often messed up make sure you have your own. Got food poisoning on Muscat to Paris flight - other than that the food tended to be quite bland. Need to give out more water on flight to combat dehydration as well. Stopping in Muscat's terminal was like a time warp back to a 1970s mall. Also no direct connection to terminal, planes park out on tarmac and take people on 1 km bus ride to connect to terminal. Legroom was pretty tight but not horrid Crew making announcements on landing were unprofessional, heard co-pilot or steward laughing in the background - while captain droned on in Arabic - this does not engender confidence in their ability to fly the plane!

Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen.

The passengers were loud and ill-mannered. They gave the crew a tough time. These complaints, of course, is not a reflection of the airline.

Entertainment system was good!

Seats were very uncomfortable for someone my height 5'11". They were molded in a way to hit just wrong. Boarding was chaotic, with no discipline or premium boarding. My suitcase was left behind despite a four hour layover. Close to landing, the flight attendants rip the blankets off of you to collect them before you are on the ground. And, apparently, Sri Lanka requires airlines to spray the cabin with unnecessary pesticides updates just before landing. Most of the world has ended this practice.

Menu choices were surprisingly better than I thought. It had Western, Chinese and Indian vegetarian. Good work. Keep it up !

Part of the travel was delayed by 2 hours (SIN to COLOMBO) on 22 Dec 2017. Online check-in is bad. I cannot change the pre-selected seat because all shown taken. Must be handled at the counter. So what is the point to do online check-in.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
