In-flight economy class lunch was served during the flight with fresh vegetable salad with vinaigrette dressing, devilled fish served with Sri Lanka Fried Rice Noodle with Ginger Mousse as dessert and coffee/ceylonese tea or juices as beverages.

SriLankan offers onboard wifi connectivity with new Airbus A320 fleet in partnership with OnAir however, I didn’t have the opportunity to test it out. Perhaps wifi is not offered in short haul flight. Overall the food was not bad coupled with great entertainment selections for a short haul flight. The seat was comfortable even though the air condition system seemed to be faulty intermittently twice during the flight. Otherwise it would be a perfect short haul experience by SriLankan Airlines.
