    While there is an uncertainty of Sri Lankan Airlines continuing to operate in Europe and several other destinations of choice, Sri Lanka Tourism today said it hopes to enter into strategic partnerships with new and existing Airlines connecting the regions capitalising on the “Open Sky” policy of the government of Sri Lanka.

    If the pax demand is bad, why is UL using A333s on routes like FRA when there are smaller aircraft like the A332s which are more than capable of flying the same flight non-stop

    It is not the number of pax...it is the yield which matters

    Thats what the speculation at the moment.. I heard that they may not go with A350s and will go with either 320 or 321s. Just a gossip at this stage.

    Got some insider news that Qatar airways going to take over management of srilankan Airlines and according to news source it's almost fixed and confirmed. Let's keep fingers crossed.

    Is there is any move to Move to privatize SriLankan Airlines?

    Exactly - nobody is asking why these flights are losing money.


    Any talk of privatisation is just that - talk.

    With the financial liabilities (including those still due) it is impossible for UL to ever make money.

    Who wants all the political appointees, jokers and incompetent clowns that infest this Airline like a cancer? Nobody.

    I won't even start on the toxic UL culture!

    Hard to believe that Qatar wants any part of this. I see zero benefit for Qatar - makes no sense imho.

    They'd be smarter to wait for the inevitable bankruptcy then set up their own Airline.
    Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find this business

    Hotel industry says unwise for SriLankan Airlines to pull out of Europe

    http://www.sundaytimes.lk/160103/bus...pe-177034.html
    Mr. Cooray said the THASL has urged the national carrier that this was not the time to withdraw from Europe. “What we are told being discussed is that the airline may retain Frankfurt. But we urge that both Paris and Frankfurt are retained.”He said Europeans are finding it difficult to travel to Islamic countries due to political unrest. Places like Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria and Eqypt are popular summer destinations frequented by millions of Germans and French who now find it more and uncomfortable to visit these locations.

    It is a fact that SriLankan (UL) should not pull out of European destinations at this point. Among the reasons UL doesn't get sufficient customers at present is, it's lack of competitiveness, from the passengers' point of view. UL has to improve it's standards on cabin services/products. Introduction of new A330-300s is a good decision towards gaining back it's past popularity with customers. During the years of recent past, UL was more seen as a competing airline with regional low cost carriers than as a competitor at full fledged carrier market, even though it is one of them.

    According to Flightstats, UL829 from KMG was cancelled on the 31/Dec for some unknown reasons. I could also notice UL's LHR flights have been delayed since 1-Jan. 4R-ALQ is the only work-horse for UL503/4 for last three days. @Haleef - Do you know why? 4R-ALG & 4R-ADE are undergoing lease-return checks. Our new 4R-ALR undergoing pre-flight checks, which will be start flying the UL revenue flights from coming weekend.

    4R-ALQ A330-343 (1687) Flight Timings for last 3 days,

    01-JAN - CMB-LHR - 12:55 - 19:26 - UL503 - LHR-CMB - 20:58 - 12:33 - UL504
    02-JAN - CMB-LHR - 13:47 - 20:11 - UL503 - LHR-CMB - 21:38 - 12:59 - UL504
    03-JAN - CMB-LHR - 14:18 - 20:54 - UL503 - LHR-CMB - 22:15 - 14:15 - UL504
