SriLankan Airlines yesterday said that its flights were not using Ukrainian airspace when travelling to Europe.

In response to A question whether the airline had diverted its path following Thursday's Malaysian flight crash, a spokesman for the Srilankan said, “As a policy our flights are not operating airspaces, where there are conflicts. In this case our flights are taking different path when travelling to Europe, and we don't use the Ukrainian airspace.”

    Given the destinations UL operate, there is no necessity for them to fly over Ukraine.
    Shows what level of professionalism it has gone to.

    If the comments made by "Be Fair" is true, then the Sri Lankan spokesman is a liar.
