(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –Sri Lanka’s national airline said Wednesday (Sept 12) it has stopped serving cashews after the country’s President flew into a rage over nuts served to him on a flight to Colombo.

“Returning from Kathmandu, I was served some cashews on board a SriLankan flight, but it was so bad even a dog wouldn’t eat it,” Maithripala Sirisena said on Monday.

“I want to know who authorised the purchase of these nuts,” the President told a meeting of farmers. An airline spokesman said it has responded by clearing its stock of cashews-only served in business class – and would change its Dubai-based supplier. – AFP
