SriLankan Airlines clarifies claims on purchases of drinking water

SriLankan Airlines recently issued a statement clarifying an erroneous news item with regard to the purchase of drinking water for its valued passengers.

The full statement issued by SriLankan Airlines is as follows:
Due to the extensive time taken by cabin crew members to physically pour and serve water to all of the passengers on flights operating on short sectors, most airlines serve either bottled water or pre-cupped water. The size of a cup is dictated by the specifications of the meal tray used on board, and the half-sized meal tray used on SriLankan’s narrow-body fleet, which serve mainly the Middle East and some parts of the Far East, requires a cup of particular dimension to be available.
