Colombo City Reviews

5Wonderful trip to Jakarta
My flight with Srilankan Airlines was good. The food during the flight from Frankfurt - Jakarta was great, and the in-flight entertainment was wonderful. I enjoyed the flight a lot. The second flight segment from Colombo - Jakarta was fine. It was a code share flight with Mihin Lanka, but the flight was no in-flight entertainment. Thank you to CheapOair that provides the exhaustive comparison of flight ticket worldwide and certainly will do it again in the future. CheapOair is a less hassle way to find the cheapest flight ticket worldwide. Keep the great work! - Arief  Jun 14, 20155Boston trip
