The SriLankan Airlines flight arriving from Melbourne proudly displayed the two flags of the 145th Royal Thomian big match.

SriLankan Airlines reported a large contingent of supporters from both sides flying down from Melbourne aboard the aircraft, showcasing true patriotic spirit.

The flags were taken down before the aircraft A330-300 commenced flight from Melbourne.

    Now those who want to grab power will comment saying the airline is loosing because of staffs from the two schools. Best is to ignore those nonentity sour grapes.

    It’s a u19 school cricket match, what is the national implications of this ???

    Joe Sunday, 03 March 2024 07:48 PM

    How can you consider waving school flags out of airplane windows as "patriotic"?

    a Trinitian Sunday, 03 March 2024 08:02 PM

    Wow, very impressive. This is perhaps the "GREATEST BIG MATCH" experience in the World.

    Rip Winkle Sunday, 03 March 2024 08:02 PM

    Big deal. SriLankan is on a downward nosedive.

    DJ Sunday, 03 March 2024 08:05 PM

    Things like this can only happen in sri lanka. Now you do this for all schools.

    Dr Kasun Sunday, 03 March 2024 08:11 PM

    What a joke, this school related egoistic activities are utterly useless. When we grow up mentally and socially we realize the egoistic behaviours that we had during college period are just mean. You become special by the work and dedication you show, not by the alma mater

    and supporters of both schools will proudly wave their flags from their respective window seats

    Tribal instincts never fade away even at this age of 21 st century

    Nonsense... Are the Royal Thomians pay the debt of Sri Lankan. Public property becomes the personal property is the main issue of all these sufferings. These Melbourne buggers do not have any importance here in Australia, that's why they are rushing back to SL to earn some stupid "respect" from another conventional group of buggers and to show off their two cents. Sri Lankans are same old backward Sri Lankans, no matter where they go or live.

    Great stuff...open windows and provide more opportunity for rodents and other pests to get in.

    Everyone wants a piece of the big match action, some have been spending so much and influencing others to promote theirs. I am wondering what the others who dont want to be second do next year. They've already had car parades, helicopters etc I am sure this is going to hurt them.

    IslandMan Monday, 04 March 2024 06:45 PM

    Who cares. These are not the only 2 schools in SL. Equal coverage needs to be given to all schools in SL, not just the so called elite Colombo schools.

    Ego must stop Monday, 04 March 2024 10:41 PM

    What a useless activity that is? Only idiots may focus on these mean actions.

    Tissa Fernando Monday, 04 March 2024 11:39 PM

    Not many good crickers with big achievements have come out from these 2 schools so far.

    Sri Lankan Airlines change the "Mee Lanka " What is the proud? Of our Airline !!!

    Rasik Gulam Tuesday, 05 March 2024 06:01 AM

    When did Royal or St. Thomas owned Sri Lankan airlines. Pilots should be investigated for doing this. Sri Lankan is not their property.

    I don’t give an excrement about your great schools. But I do worry about the critically injured person in an ambulance and dying because they can’t get to hospital on time because the ambulance is stuck in traffic because of your stupid public parades. Celebrate your excrement on your own without inconveniencing others and putting others lives in danger.
