    Pls try your best to do sth on behalf of country. Not for you.
    Wish you all the best

    How will they run the business will be interesting to know. Will SriLankan be a susidiary of Mihin or will Mihin be susidiary of SriLankan. Or will SriLankan be low cost :D. Anyway what I see is two airlines without a vision, mission or any strategic plan just waisting public money. Poor SriLanka, had a good reputation as one of the best airlines in the world.

    What sort of standard are we going to have...???

    Alex Thursday, 05 May 2011 07:56 AM

    what a waste.. hope he wont run our national carrier down like Mihin.. as it is Srilankan standards and quality of service has dropped so much.

    local boy Thursday, 05 May 2011 08:05 AM

    SriLankan is not up to its old standard and many more other regional carries like singapore airlines and malaysian airlines providing far more better services.

    Brenan Friday, 06 May 2011 02:14 AM

    Gosh our country is doomed :-(

    spark Friday, 06 May 2011 03:29 AM

    Remember this is the only country which uses a President's name to boost his public image for an airline paid by the public.

    lankaman Friday, 06 May 2011 05:57 AM

    now we will have sorry lankan airlines

    Alex Thursday, 05 May 2011 12:56 PM

    absolutely.. Sri lankan carried aprox 3million ppl as oppose to 25mil from Air Asia... they may be a budget airline but they have eaten in to SLA mkt shares so well.... top it all SLA made 6.7bil loss last year and surprisingly mihin made profits. we all know how!!!!

    Rohan Serasinghe Thursday, 05 May 2011 12:58 PM

    Mr Kapila Chandrasena will rectify all the short comings of the badly run SriLankan Airlines and will turn it around. Give him some time to turn things round and you will see a very different SriLankan Airlines in a short time. Support our National carrier and the new CEO Kapila and see the airline grow from strength to strength!

    willows Friday, 06 May 2011 06:55 AM

    Mr. Kapila is a very good administrator and if he is given the freedom, without political interferences, I am sure he will run the place with high standards

    Dr rajarathnam Thursday, 05 May 2011 01:08 PM

    Dr wicky what you have said is 100% correct-

    Sohan Thursday, 05 May 2011 01:33 PM

    Yes, give the new CEO Kapila a chance and he will show results. Let's not be negative, let us all support him our National Airline and our Country.

    One time I seen menu card & serving food are difference, what a service under Emirates.

    Farzan Thursday, 05 May 2011 01:50 PM

    Waste of Tax payers money. Improper management of funds with political influenses

    Kaslana Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:06 PM

    A "budget airline" run by those who cannot budget!

    Sandhya Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:11 PM

    It is a budget airline but unlike the budget flights in the west, to travel together as a family unit you need to pay extra, and extra for food, extra for luggage - who fancies this.
    Of course this is good for short haul trips.

    pushpe Thursday, 05 May 2011 02:56 PM

    All the MIHIN Lanka handling, fueling, maintenance & etc doing by Sri Lankan. Thats y its profit loss.

    thats the same reason for MIHIN profit. thats the truth...
