As a result, passengers of one flight faced severe inconvenience as there were many small children among them.
When inquired, the officials have said the blankets provided have been reduced as a cost cutting measure.
Not even the cockpit has been provided with a blanket.
Meanwhile, business class passengers of SriLankan flights are offered a plate of only 10 cashews each with the customary alcoholic drink provided to them.
This is said to be yet another cost cutting measure.
