    Im working in Doha, I have seen many times most of the Sri Lankan air hosters/ attenders are roaming around with their boy friend and girl friend..They have more freedom once they landed. So here is the result for that. So sri lankan air lines should implement a rule to not to let them to roam around with their lovers. These airline hostess/attenders are very well known by the passengers... So the qualityof the airline staff bring bad to our country and also to Airlines. Specially this happening Doha, City Centre, Villago Mall, Azpire Zone and also Umssaid Desert driving area. Many people have seen this and complained to sri lankan Embassy staff also in Qatar. But nothing happened...So HERE IS THE FINAL RESULT

    I have been in Desert safari in Dubai once. It is terrible experience. I myself thought not to go again. Once you get into the vehicle only knows what happen next and you are too late to get out of it. So sad to hear about the death of the Sri Lanka Airlines Stewardess demise. My deepest sympathy to the family.

    What an illiterate imbecile, what village hole have you crawled out of? This is the 21st century. What do you want these crews to do on long layovers?Hide in the hotel for 3-4 days?That is the Sri Lankan mentality that is destroying our people. This job gives them the opportunity to see the world and educate themselves so what harm if they enjoy it with their boyfriends.I can only laugh at if what you are saying is true and there are people actually complaining to the embassy. What bunch of idiots.Disgusted by some of the comments here.

    It is sad news.Our thoughts are with the families.

    Stay on the topic you nut shell

    samantha Wednesday, 04 February 2015 11:38 AM

    Wear seat belts people; wear seat belts!!!

    Monaliza Sunday, 01 February 2015 02:50 PM

    Those days there were quality AHs and Cabin Crew in Sri Lankan. and they never treated passengers in a bad way. Nowadays most of the air hosters are disqualified, not good looking and coming on favorations......... So may be they dont know how to behave well. But they have the freedom to enjoy life during their rest protecting the reputation of their org.

    Mr T Thursday, 05 February 2015 08:29 PM

    What a stupid comment to make !!

    Vera Sunday, 01 February 2015 03:21 PM

    Look People the issue here is the accident and the death of a young girl. Not about how they treat passengers etc. Just please show some sympathy for the girl and her family. So what if they are out with their girl or boyfriends, since when did that become a crime. I do not live in Sri Lanka, but that does not mean I cannot feel sad at this tragic accident.

    DHA Sunday, 01 February 2015 12:58 AM

    RIP dear.....and we pray for the speedy recovery of the others.....

    Lanka Putha Sunday, 01 February 2015 02:12 AM

    Our deepest sympathies to her family. Hope the rest will get well soon and get back quickly to their family
