    True its a good move. The innocent have to pay for the losses. But who is going to take the blame for it?

    It should have been done earlier without further delay. In terms of service, Muihin Lanka is the worst airline not only in Sri Lanka but also in the Asian region.

    At last, some common sense. It's mindboggling how billions of public money is squandered on a idiotic political whim. Will these clowns ever answer to the people?

    Increasing earnings but spending more does not get profits - that is why Govt has to pump in Billions annually. If you start more flights you will get more earnings but costs go up much more - so you get bankrupt sooner.

    Very good move but employees and others holder transferred to Srilankan airkines
