    Ranil could be a lot of things (including, but not limited to 'invertebrate' as some people call him), but he is most certainly not an idiot.

    Irrespective of the politics, he has made some smart moves since coming to power and that should be applauded.

    An awful lot more that needs to be done though.

    It's been 20 months now, and I think it is about time we stop blaming the previous government for everything.

    no it's easier right??? dispose brand new wide bodies to other airlines, delay BIA 2, delay runway overlay, etc. And the easiest excuse: "we are paying off the debt of the previous regime" BRAVO!!!

    The previous government may have started the meddling. But Ranil & co have no problem continuing with it.

    Something has to give as the government is reportedly almost bankrupt, the aircrafts were leased above market rates and the routes were loss making. Such decisions may not be popular but sometimes tough decisions need to be made. Unless your willing to fund UL to continue loss making routes, we all have to make a sacrifice. That said the government if they were serious could've turned this ship around by installing experienced foreign management last year (like what Malaysia did at MH).

    Nevertheless I wouldn't be surprised to see these aircraft back under a new owner at UL.

    As much as it pains me you are correct about sub-leasing the aircraft to deal with the above market rate leases. But the reason people are angry is because the previous government and the henchmen who made these deals are still out and about enjoying their lives, spending money they embezzled from these deals. If they were behind bars, making sacrifices would be a whole lot easier. But so far the people have suffered (and I'm not talking only about aviation here) while the crooks openly laugh at the governments face. That is why A330LOVE is correct in saying that Ranil is an idiot.

    Well putting them behind bars would make RW and MS very unpopular in the parliament during the next election........maybe he isn't an idiot after all

    What people need to understand is that the Politicians are all involved in Racketeering.

    There may well be Politicians who are not actively involved - but they know what is going on and choose to not act. That's the best case scenario!

    When was the last time a Politician was convicted in Sri Lanka? I've heard it was in the 1950's

    The chances of MS and RW being re-elected are getting the slimmer by the day. The people who voted for MR on Jan 8 still mostly support him. A good number of people who voted for MS on Jan 8th and RW on Aug 17th...... not so much.

    Half the parliament hates their guts anyway, so same scenario there. He has nothing to lose by locking up the cronies (starting preferably with Nishantha Wickramasinghe)

    Btw last time I checked securing another term in office is not in his job description

    Any info on how many tech and cabin crew members are part of this deal and what their arrangement will be?

    It's been recently reported, Emirates is not permanently cancelling Daily x CMB-SIN route. In short, service is temporary not available on this sector for 3-month period, instead of permanent.

    Will it come back to UL or will it be taken by AerCap after 6 months?

    UL leased 4R-ALN from HKAC on 12 Years lease. So it will comeback to UL if PIA decide not to extend the wetlease.

    Extremely glad that they aren't cancelling this route

    I strongly think that UL should continue operating the CGK route even after the phase out of the MJ brand as this route has a lot of potential with many Lankan's making use of the VOA facility at Indonesia resulting in most flights being full.

    As MJ currently operates a daily flight, i presume RW's ideas are to boost competition on this sector quite similarly to the CMB-DAC route currently dominated by MJ that would see BD commencing operations in the near future.
