    Could you please tell me what time does this happened? Only reason I can think of CMB does the weekly mini-maintenance for the runway every Wednesdays afternoon.

    Guys, above was a tongue in cheek comment.

    Don't take it literally!

    As for the Gulfs, I have no idea who was in them.

    From 4.45pm to 5.30pm. It affected UL flights from India and a Qatar airways flight.

    Please advise how did you find out UL is going to operate double daily on CMB-DXB.

    As far I can notice from Amadeus, UL will have only 11 weekly on CMB-DXB from Dec. I have listed the Winter 2017 Expansion plans below.

    - Oct - Daily nonstop flights to Melbourne
    - Nov - Increasing Delhi flights from 11 to 13 weekly
    - Dec - Increasing Doha flights from 7 to 11 weekly
    - Dec - Increasing Dubai flights from 7 to 11 weekly

    Update on the massive Incompetence.....

    Let me take a wild guess - no investigation and no accountability.

    Delay in return penalty cost Sri Lankan Airlines U$D70,000

    http://newsinflight.com/2017/07/14/d...lines-ud70000/
    Sri Lankan Airlines has incurred penalties of USD700,000 for the late return of an A320-200 to sub-lessor IndiGo Airlines( Delhi, India)

    According to company sources who spoke to the News 1st online news portal, 4R-ABK (msn 2584) was due to have been returned to the Indian Low Cost Carrier IndiGo Airlines on May 8 but has been retained for unspecified maintenance reasons.
    Analysis of FlightRadar24 ADS-B data shows the aircraft was withdrawn from regular commercial service on December 31, 2016. In April, it was ferried to Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta, Indonesia where it remained, presumably for maintenance, until May 19 when it was ferried back to Colombo, Sri lanka
    The aircraft has been parked in the Sri Lankan capital ever since.

    SriLankan Airlines declined to comment stating the affair is subject to commercial confidentiality clauses.

    A very good article - with just a few inaccuracies.

    When MR showed up at London Heathrow with his entourage wanting to get on the flight - they actually offered him 8 seats in a full Business Class. MR could have traveled on this flight with a few of his cronies. There was an effort made to try and accommodate him - makes the subsequent dismissal of Peter Hill even more bizarre.

    The author makes the mistake of thinking that this Airline can still be turned around. I did comment on why this is incorrect. So far the Daily Mirror hasn't published my comment (not the first time this has happened). I guess there is such a thing as too much truth!
