Budget airline, felt safe. I saw a Spice Jet plane while waiting for my flight, and I sat there wondering how would it get into the air. It was scary and I was scared and prayed for people flying on that plane. Sri Lankan was a good plane, and I felt safe. It is budget. So it is not in same class as Emirates, Eva, Cathay Airlines etc.. But it is a good choice if you are country hoping and not going distances more than 2-3 hours. Anything longer, I would consider a different airline for comfort etc.. But if you are going from Thailand to Maldives, or Vietnam to Thailand etc.. It is a better choice. The flights are so short. Why spend so much. It really was safe. I would definitely use Sri Lankan again next year, if the price is right.
