    Only 58 souls in the flight?? WY used to have their flights filled to brim. Its guess for how long foreign airlines and Sri Lankan could continue to operate with this pathetic load factor!! The sad thing is the politicians are playing pucks while the country and the economy are going to the dogs in front their eyes.
