After a quick night at the colombo transit hotel, i made my way to the Sri Lankan operated Serendib lounge which i have access via my Qantas Platinum card which is a OneWorld Emerald. The lounge that Malaysia Airlines use is the Araliya, which is a sad excuse for a lounge really. Lots of aged black leather armchairs and a sparse buffet corner.
The Sri Lankan Serendib Lounge
The serendib lounge also offers a guestbook to track if other fellow travellers that you know have been to the lounge.
This lounge also boasts spacious views of the tarmac and the adjoining runway
Then i spot this CA plane, apparently its a government charter!
At 1225, boarding commenced and i made my way to the boarding gate. Like Singapore, security is done at the gate and not after customs. For some reason the WTMDs here are set to maximum sensitivity. Even my shoes need to go through the X-ray belt!
Malaysia Airlines flies the B737-800 for most of its short haul routes, and this is no exception. the Seats in business are blue in colour and economy are red in colour, in line with its corporate colours.
MH J in the B738s are recliners as you can see here. I didn't have a neighbour so used it as a 'storage corner'
Let us peruse the menu for this flight
And some drinks too
Some satay to start. This is the first time I'm having satay in the air and I've gotta say its not bad!
Then followed by bryani as the main course. The rice was pretty oily and bland, but did its job well!
For the rest of the flight the window shades were closed down for some shut eye all the way into KUL
