    When will the drivers strike?

    Southpaw Monday, 28 May 2018 12:46 PM

    Not necessary for a Drivers Union as the GMOA will strike and fight for his rights on his behalf.

    Sack the fellow. If he can't see a Am 20, he will not see anything. Must have been drunk or very careless.

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 28 May 2018 08:59 AM

    Must be an ex-3wheel driver.

    Take from one pocket and put in another ! Claimed by Sri Lankan airlines paid by Sri Lankan Insurance (SLIC)

    Dhammika Sunday, 27 May 2018 04:22 PM

    I thought with the present weather condition THUNDERSTROMS , LIGHTNING could have hit the aircraft but not a water bowser .

    Is there anything that can be done right in our country?

    Devaasi Sunday, 27 May 2018 04:55 PM

    Airport authorities are so reckless. The immigration officers are so wicked to the tourists as we're as citizens as if we travel from their own money. No courtesy. Don't recruit crude officials to immigration. We need refined people.

    this shows the plight of country tdy

    Dhammika Sunday, 27 May 2018 05:28 PM

    TOO BAD , With the inclement weather planes are hot by THUNDERSTROMS , LIGHTNING and now WATER BOWSERS as well.

    Citizens SL Monday, 28 May 2018 08:56 AM

    100% sure, The Driver must have got the job through a P connection. What about Insurance, will they not pay for the damage. Sack the driver quickly, before he finds his connections to the P ( we mean the guys by lake) and prove that the plane was in the wrong place and it is the pilot who has to be sacked.

    Water in the bowser, Arrack in the driver

    SENA Tuesday, 29 May 2018 02:11 PM

    The driver of the bowser must be a CRASH SPECIALIST
