    Mr SURA PAPPA,


    1>If you take away the cost MR and his family travel including GL peris travel expenses. the airline should run at a profit
    2>If you sell shares to foreign companies they will ask questions about item 1.
    3>If you sell shares to foreign companies MR wont be able make (10% now changed to 25% - kick back)money on new air craft purchase.
    4.Don't worry, we know where they are keeping the money and we will take each and every penny from MR brothers.

    MOTHER LANKA airline is the hands of dogs.
