Voice of Travelers to Sri Lanka
Respected the flight crew
I'm a newly disabled 27-year-old woman who flew alone with my 12-month-old on my trip. That had the potential to be a pretty awful situation, but the crew on all four of my flights during our cross country trip were fantastic. They gave me cups and other helpful items to help keep my son entertained. They even helped me sort out a couple of problems I had at the Sir Lanka airport. The air ticket on the flight was on time or early, and the pilot kept us up to date on significant landmarks as we were passing over. I brought my own tablet and phone for offline entertainment, and they did offer a digital system for a small fee. Beverages were free, although snacks and food cost money. The crew did not accept cash, only creidt cards. Overall, I enjoyed my flight, appreciated the flight crew, loved the price, and would certainly book with them again.
