Dining Experience: Despite being a short-haul flight, the dining experience is nothing short of exceptional. All three courses are served on a single tray, presenting a vibrant feast for the senses. The meals are a showcase of rich colours, bold spices, and an explosion of diverse flavours that capture the essence of Sri Lankan cuisine.
