I've enjoyed my flights on UL but I've gotta say, that peacock on the tail looks more like a turkey to me.

UL has great service indeed! I've had the pleasure of taking 4 flights with them! And I thought it was a chili pepper for the longest time given the spiciness of Sri Lankan food!

And this aircraft features a major improvement of the on-board product - with all aisle access seats on Business Class, HD IFE displays on all classes and in-flight Wi Fi.
