    I doubt Fitsair's DC8 was operating for another airline. Please confirm? As far as I know Fitsair has 4 hubs (CMB, DXB, NBO & SIN). May be their DC8 was operating out of DXB but now their DC8 is based in NBO.

    The original photograph (https://www.flickr.com/photos/aero_i...-BcE7u3-KddzDW) only mentions Lima November.

    But I crossed the date the photograph was taken with FR24, the UL bird is Lima Romeo

    The Cabin crew certainly looks like from PK.

    Maybe they put the PK crew just for the photo shoot.

    Sri Lankan flight grounded

    A Sri Lankan Airlines flight bound for Colombo on Saturday was grounded at the Tiruchi International Airport due to a technical snag. Sources said the engine fault was detected a few minutes before the flight was about to take off at 9.30 am.

    All 146 passengers had boarded prior to the detection of the fault. Since it could not be set right immediately, all passengers were asked to alight and accommodated in a hotel.

    That's condensation from the air conditioning system - perfectly normal.
    Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find this business

    That happens when you power the jet on. It's the AirCon system.

    Yes. SriLankan to connect the UK with the Maldives

    SriLankan Airlines will be operating nonstop flights on one-way from London to Male' effective 5-Jan-2017 until 06-Apr-2017. But there are no nonstop flights will be operated by UL from Male' to London. It appears to be the decision has been made since UL can't land aircraft at Colombo between 08:30am and 16:30pm in Jan-Apr 2017 due to runway resurfacing work. At the same time UL have to take off from London at 22:10 since there are no flights allowed to take off at London Heathrow after 23:00 hours. So UL management may have decided to do a stopover in Maldives so UL can take off at London at 22:10 and then land in Colombo on the following day at 16:35 via Maldives , as soon as the scheduled resurfacing work completed for the day.

    UL do have freedom rights between London and Male'. In Jan 2017, UL providing cheaper rates on LHR-MLE compared to TK, QR & EK. UL has the lower price £484 and TK has £578 both prices are for one way.

    Here is the LHR Flight Schedule for Jan to Apr 2017

    CMB-LHR - 02:20 - 08:40 - UL#505 - A333 - ..6.7 - NONSTOP
    CMB-LHR - 08:20 - 14:40 - UL1503 - A333 - DAILY - NONSTOP

    LHR-CMB - 12:35 - 04:30 - UL#506 - A333 - ..6.7 - NONSTOP
    LHR-MLE - 22:10 - 13:30 - UL1504 - A333 - DAILY - NONSTOP
    MLE-CMB - 14:40 - 16:35 - UL1504 - A333 - DAILY - NONSTOP

    Changing the CEO is the least of the problems - imho.

    The very minimum that needs to be done imho:-

    Fire 3000 employees.
    Fire the entire "Management" team.
    Fire the entire useless board.
    Fire all the Department heads. Some like HHR belong in prison.
    Fire most of the HR/IT/Commercial/Sales department.
    End the Theft/Fraud/Corruption/Incompetence/Racketeering.


    I don't see any of the above happening. If the GOSL was serious about running things properly they could already have done all the above - you don't need a partner to do this.

    The fact that nothing has happened tells me all I need to know. No Action - Talk Only.

    Not sure why people believe anything GOSL Ministers or UL Management say - these people have zero credibility.

    What is being presented is a wildly optimistic outlook imho.

    No shortage of Big Talk in Sri Lanka - that's all these people can do.

    The correct course of action is to close this down ASAP - it's a lost cause imho.
    Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find this business
