    If Sri Lankan Airways could fly direct to hell and back, and our politicians were forced but a one-way ticket at their own expense, our airline would be the world's most profitable airline.

    Typical Sri Lankan mentality that we always measure everything in monetary terms. Kathmandu as a regional destination should have been on UL route network a long time ago. Himalayas attract lots of tourists, besides Nepal's migrant workers could be of immense value for SriLankan Airlines.
