My travel was of 10 hours and after 3 hours of departure I started having pain in my back...seat was poorly structured. . Its like cushion of seats were dead n on top of it that cushion behind back was too outside.. I was not able to sleep at all as was not comfortable.. Also there was no system at Srilankan airport.. No barriers for travelers so that people stand in cue but no one was following lines as there were none.. Will never fly with Srilankan airlines again ever.."

Cons: "i am very dissatisfied for the bad service. my friend and i missed the booked flight, but the online service and counter said they can help me nothing."

Pros: "Free entertainment (nice selection of movies), free food and drinks (food is a bit spicy, but within reason), more leg room than expected."
Cons: "At first they refused to let me in on the plane, because they misread the instructions from Dubai and thought I couldn't even be at the airport. I can't go into Dubai, but I can be at the terminal. To their credit, they realized their mistake just in time and I was able to make the flight, albeit barely, so no harm done."

Cons: "ground staff was unable to provide information about the delay"

Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"

Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"

Pros: "Although I only gave it 4 for comfort, that is mainly because it wasn't a fully reclinable seat which I don't think it's available on a 737. Otherwise the level of service from the staff was excellent."

Pros: "Boarding and takeoff ,, in time"
Cons: "The food should be according to international standards,, The food on board is so spicy,,"

Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late with no terminal announcements of the delay."

Cons: "For a country known for its variety and quality of food, Malaysia Airlines is probably the worst place to experience it. Tasteless, poorly presented food and the most unappetising of choices. Crew were harried and rude, and the whole journey seems to last 16 hours instead of 8."

Cons: "What a smelly plane! Clean it!"

Pros: "Poor crew service"
Cons: "Handling customer boarding process better"

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Food is disgusting, take off was terrible (not sure if was pilot or just a super old and terrible plane). They decided to go through all of our bags again as we went up stairs to board the plane. Of my hundreds of flights I have never seen something this idiotic and redundant. Completely ridiculous to open up every single passenger’s bag before allowing them to take their seat. And this happened an hour AFTER departure time, making me and half the plane miss connecting flights. Never book through them, pay the extra to save yourself the headache. They didn’t care that they made us spend an extra $1000 to rebook international flights, just a “we understand this inconveniences you” completely ridiculous."

Pros: "Most things went smoothly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "Absolutely horrible! The airline canceled my flight and would not refund my money. My credit card company is disputing it now. I’ll never use this airline again and recommend you do the same..."

Pros: "I got the emergency exit door seat which I feel very comfortable. Departure on time, Arrival on early than scheduled."
Cons: "First of all, The ground staff not having proper coordination at Doha Air Port. Safety induction very Poor, all demo equipment's was dirty and damaged. Another seat not really that good. Compare to other International flight this one extremely POOR. No Quality food, No Entertainment. The ONLY Flight not recommended for international travel. AIR INDIA is ok for travel."

Cons: "not satisfactory from any angel!"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Everything!"

Cons: "Boarding wasn't comfortable"
