    But no airline can match the gigantic losses like Srilankan incured for the last decade!! Huh!! Unparalleled!!yeah!!

    Amith Sunday, 07 October 2018 07:32 PM

    Yes. our losses are high due to mismanagement. But if you look at there are many loss making air lines in the world which includes Ethihad.

    An airline like no other (FINANCIALLY)

    See.. Other than nut cases everything is fine. Remove politics and have a good strategy, SriLankan can make profits in no time.

    Prem Sunday, 07 October 2018 02:24 PM

    Great achievement, always everyone criticised the airline, but overcoming all of the burdens efficient staff eventually achieved this extraordinary milestone. Congratulations.

    Mandy Monday, 08 October 2018 08:40 AM

    lt is thanks to new Board of non political efficient directors with experience in business. Good luck for the future - keep SL flag to fly high.

    Some good news about our national carrier. Its a good airline with good staff but unfortunately with bad management. It is very much like the country and the government. Good country with good talented people but with very bad leaders to manage. Very sad.

    if the above site (Flightstats.com) is an accredited entity... Well Done! Atleast something to be happy about SL.

    Namal Sunday, 07 October 2018 03:14 PM

    If you reduce the number of flights in the fleet some more and appoint another political appointee to the top post and pay him a huge USD salary we can bag all awards including the biggest loss in the industry.

    UL meant usually late those days, remarkable improvement.

    Dhammika Sunday, 07 October 2018 03:30 PM

    CONGRADULATIONS ! . Get the financial crisis on that same track as well .

    Banfa Sunday, 07 October 2018 03:52 PM

    Paul Sunday, 07 October 2018 04:03 PM

    They are left with limited destinations , others have been dropped out. Obviously, they should fly on time.

    Nadaal Sunday, 07 October 2018 04:12 PM

    Oh my God. Let’s change the code letter UL to OT(On time)

    AM Sunday, 07 October 2018 04:41 PM

    Punctuality and Sri Lankans dont really bond together.. But VERY HAPPY TO HEAR THE GOOD NEWS ! ALL THE BEST !! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!!!

    ravin Sunday, 07 October 2018 05:10 PM

    Oh !! what type of instruments they were using to do this calculations? Have they caliber those equipment's correctly?

    Wise Donkey Sunday, 07 October 2018 05:25 PM

    Just one little question with the load of Cashew nuts or without?

    Harith Sunday, 07 October 2018 05:40 PM

    When I flew few weeks ago they were announcing at the airport that you will not be boarded if you did not reach 20 minutes before departure time, as Sri Lankan wants to improve its punctuality. Though this looks a minor points, such small changes in passenger dynamics will help more international passengers to shift to Sri Lankan. Although I have many negatives been a frequent flyer, this to me is a good initiative.

    Dee Sunday, 07 October 2018 08:22 PM

    If not for the crimes committed on this national asset by our former 'king' . This airline would be the best in the region!

    Citizen Silva Monday, 08 October 2018 08:12 AM

    They must be joking!

    willowsd Monday, 08 October 2018 08:40 AM

    UL - usually late?

    edman Premasiri Monday, 08 October 2018 09:45 AM

    Ann Tuesday, 09 October 2018 07:56 PM
