    Some where in between of US$98 - 150 Million. They took a loan from Credit Suise (#1) for that sometime in spring/summer 2017

    Don't believe this is correct.

    My understanding this had been discussed and rejected by airbus.

    As far as I know they have to pay for 4 A350 (still U$800 Million to be paid according to the papers).

    Same with the leases - they have tried to renegotiate these without result.

    Both of the above represent several $$ Billion in forward liabilities.


    I am also noticing an almost complete news blackout regarding UL since early February - not sure what this all about.

    Qatar targets 100 aircraft fleet for prospective Indian carrier

    SL Government now needs to remember to use another random ME country who is waiting in line to 'invest' in UL in future.

    All the probes and whatnot on UL that were promised have gone quite after the elections.

    Can UL make the 350 work with their current route structure if they are forced to take them?

    I can't think of any destinations than LHR and maybe Australia? They seem to be doing quite well in Melbourne though I am not sure if they can maintain it all year long.

    AI is planning to increase the number of Australian flights; not sure if it is due to UL doing well with Indian transit traffic.

    There is no requirement or justification for the A350 at UL.

    Aircraft orders at UL have nothing whatsoever to do with the requirements of the Airline. It's all about Commissions for the Politicians and their cronies.

    Given the previously posted load factors on the Melbourne flight - my guess is that it is a money loser.

    oh ok, thank you.

    Did 4R-ALQ come back to CMB 22 feb as UL168 as yesterdays NRT and today early morning to LHR are all delayed over 4 hours - I'm assuming is because 4R-ALQ is still in COK (due to some tech issue?)
