On the A330, there are three computer charging stations but on the A340, only one.

SriLankan Airlines is capable of preparing meals for those with dietary restrictions, and Business Class passengers can pre-order any of the special meals available. On some flights, like Singapore to Colombo, SriLankan prepares hot meals (such as chicken and rice or seafood with vegetables) for Economy Class, as the flight is long.
