    Sri Lanka seeks higher bids for ailing airline

    http://www.reuters.com/article/sri-l...-idUSL3N1GC4Y3

    GoSL has wasted 8 months since July and now want to get back to square one?

    Every day that GoSL have UL in their books is a loss for the SL tax payers.

    They should offload this toxic asset without further delay.

    They had 9 bids and 8 months to evaluate/negotiate and now to think that someone will magically come up with a better offer is naive, at best.

    A lemon is a lemon and it gets what it gets.

    UL Fleet Strategy

    Does anyone know what their NEW medium to long term fleet strategy is?

    To me it appears:

    1. Replace aging A32X with A32Xneo.
    2. Not replace the A332s coming out of lease and let the newer A333s to take their place.
    3. Continue to keep the new A333s in the fleet.

    Appreciate if some light can be thrown.

    ABM, ABN, ABO, ABP and ANA are the only A320 family aircraft which have PTV's onboard.

    Hi LankaFlyer,

    Please confirm if I am correct with the above statement. I think ABL, ABQ, ABR, MRD and MRE doesn't have PTVs.

    4R-ABQ AND 4R-ABR both have PTVs with AVOD (J & Y)- have flown with both of them around 2 years back

    Please see below trip report on ULA321 posted on flight-report.com

    Cayman,

    I think what you guess is almost correct. However UL have to lease 4/5 more aircraft when does the current leases for A332 expires in 2020-1. In the end of 2021, UL will have 12 x A32X and 7 x A333 so they need 4/5 additional aircraft for running the flights.

    Any idea if A320neo have the range of doing CMB-HKG and CMB-JED nonstop flights without payload penalty?

So in this case could anyone give me an educated guess on UL aircraft operationing type to COK on April this year would be.
    Thanks!!
    I will try if I can find out and let you know this weekend. In the mean time I would like to know if CMB-COK route making profit for UL?

    It shows peak season is giving good yields for KLM. Shame BA didn't consider doing nonstop to CMB from LHR. Could KLM be able to make in all seasons service to CMB? How does Austrian doing at CMB? UIA Ukraine Airlines has announced it will be operating all season two weekly KBP-CMB nonstop flights onboard B767.

    Based on the range specifications from Airbus Industrie, I believe that both the 320NEO and 321NEO should be able to fly both CMB-HKG and CMB-JED non-stop, easily (without any sort of payload penalty)... but I'm not an expert.
    I'm a bit confused about UL's fleet plans, though... From what I understand - as of April 2017, there will be 2 brand new 320s (ANA and ANB), 4 relatively new 320s (ABM-ABP), 2 medium-aged 321s (ABQ and ABR) and 7 new 333s (ALL-ALR), along with 2 ageing 320s (ABL and MRE), 1 ageing 321 (MRD), 2 ageing 332s (ALH and ALJ) and 4 very old 332s (ALA-ALD). I've been assuming that the 4 brand new 321s (being delivered between May 2017 and January 2018) will be replacing the oldest 332s (ALA-ALD); and, I believe that the GOSL also agreed (during the cancellation of the 350 orders) to take another brand new 333 from AerCap in the near future. So, am I correct in thinking that, by early 2018, UL will have 25 aircraft in total (10 wide-bodies and 15 narrow-bodies)? [Note - I believe that ABQ and ABR have been leased until 2020, and that the lease for ALH from AerCap has been extended as part of the deal to cancel the 350 orders... but I don't know if ABL, MRE, MRD and ALJ are going to leave the fleet in the near future].
    I look forward to any clarifications/corrections.

    Planning? Strategy? There's nothing like that at UL.

    People are still making the mistake of looking at UL like it is a business.

    Nothing about UL resembles a business in any way - which is one of the reasons they can't/won't find a buyer.

    Aircraft orders are all about pocketing commissions - nothing more.

    Don't expect anything from the GOSL - they can't even provide electricity to the people of the country.
    Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find this business

    Thanks Banu.

    As for the A320neo, in the 150 seat configuration (which UL appears to have) the typical range is 3,700nm. According to GCM HKG is 2,200nm and JED 2,600nm. Both destinations should be operable without penalty.

    I don't know whether they make profits or not but then what I know is that the round trip ticket costs USD 219. But then in the current state of affairs I guess they seem to make no profit on any route.
    BTW the CMB-DAC tickets are surprisingly high priced. Could remember flying that route and a ticket cost me a wallet busting USD 420 on MJ.
