    Not Toulouse, but in Germany, XFW. Still undergoing final tests I guess, will be delivered probably within a few days or maybe the next week.

    SriLankan Airlines needs restructuring without delay: CEO
    we are the dominant airline in the best times to visit the Maldives. For all practical purposes, we are the national carrier of the Maldives. Pakistan and Bangladesh are also huge markets for us. So we reckon ourselves as a SAARC carrier. Our revenue flow has been very good. Sometimes it's better than those of our rivals. However, the high costs of operation drag us down. This needs to addressed soon. If it is done, the Airline could be made profitable," Captain Ratwatte noted.

    Not sure how they are going to get out of too many aircraft leased at above market rates on 12 year leases with no termination clause.

    Impossible to make money like this.

    No way out imho.

    Shows the issue very nicely:-

    A few people profiting at the expense of the entire country!

    This is pretty minor - some people pocketed $$Millions on the corrupt aircraft deals.

    Time to close this down - it's the only way to stop this.

    Why could not Colombo invite QF for this route. QF & UL would have been more benefited on Indian and middle east Sectors.

    As to my Knowledge.India does not allow overseas carriers to Code share on Indian routes. As both the Airlines are on One world QF would have got the option of getting a through ticket for Indian sectors. Also UL could have code shared on LHR & SYD routes.

    It's an entire different business case altogether. SIN-LHR can provide much better yield than CMB-LHR can. QF has history at SIN, and Aussie travelers will expect a premium transit experience,something that CMB cannot provide. QF is happy with its code-share with Jet Airways between SIN and India.

    All the pictures show it is still registered as D-AZAB.

    There's obviously some issue between the leasing company and UL - my guess is either financial or due to UL losing its EASA 145 certification.

    The rumour has AND had an engine issue. Not sure if its still the case.

    My assumption would be UL is not in a hurry to take AND until Oct. I can notice the next flight expansion is from 29-Oct.

    As already been posted on our forum, there are additional changes to happen for SriLankan Flights. Frequency of Hyderabad flights are going to be increased from 4 to 5 weekly from 31-Oct. Loved to see our national carrier is growing.

    UL 's HKG flights are mostly served by A330s.
