This is a long overdue post that my very good friend waffles has been asking me to write for ages. I guess since recently i didnt have the kick to actually sit in one place and write something. So since waffles has threatened me quite a few times i thought ill actually sit my ass down and write this post.
Just over a month ago i took my very first trip abroad.. yes i know its sad that its such a long overdue trip but i did it.. it was to Bangalore for my best friends engagement but i simply loved the idea of going as i was going aloneee….. the feeling was just wonderful and i was excited about it from the very first day i told my parents im going.
So the lovely airline Sri Lankan airlines did my travel and accomadation. Firstly it took them a long time to actually get their act together and make my bookings and do all that.. and secondly when i had confirmed all the details and i went over to world trade centre to pay for everything, i sat in front of that girl who did all my details and waited for over an hour for her just to print out my ticket. Correct me if im wrong but if i managed to confirm everything by mail and the phone why should it take so long to print my ticket out?
Anyways after that was over in two weeks or so i was to fly out. Since it was my first time waffles gave me a full out tutorial of what i should do and where i should go and whom i should speak to at the airport. Ofcourse even after that waffles was on the phone with me guiding me through it all coz waffles knew id muck it up somehow and ruin everything and most probably end up in a completely different part of the airport.
So anyway the sri lankan airlines team at the airport was really really friendly and they were very nice. As i boarded the plane i went and sat next to a grumpy old man who hardly smiled or did anything.. but what more can you expect from indians i guess.So then when we were about to take off the stewardess did the usual safety procedure and the way she did it made it seem that she wished she can jump off the plane. She rolled her eyes the entire time and i am very sure we can find more enthusiasm on a dead turtle than this girl.
At first the flight was fine but then a whole heap of turbulance started and and then the food was carted off to us. Now i get it that its a short flight so they dont really need to give us anything to eat, but i would very much prefer if they bloody hell didnt give us anything at all than the shit they offered us. I can swear my dogs shit probably will taste better than that. We were given a muffin that was tasteless and a mango juice in a carton and also some small bun which was the size of half an eqlair. At first i was like yay a hot dog and then i opened it and it was like a liver thingy in it… i took one bite and the only thing i wanted to do was puke it out… too bad it was a plane and i couldnt open the shutter and throw it up (another joke at waffles who told me never to worry if i feel like throwing up to feel free to open the window and throw up ) 🙂
Anyways all in all the flight to and from there sucked royally, and their food was horrible. My advice to Sri Lankan is to not serve anything at all because i think you can keep your passengers very happy without any food other than giving them such terrible horrible meals like that in your god awful bright purple dishes.
