    Hurrah, banana republic... another chapter of robbing by these newly elected hench-aiya's.... yes sir, yes sir more than 3 bags full. At the end of it, again another COPE report stating why the airline is at a more worse loss.... all ala carte public money.

    Ranjith Fernando - the cricket commentator?

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Tuesday, 03 April 2018 12:10 PM

    No, you ignorant twit. He's a distinguished banker, now retired.

    From the frying pan to the fire....more stooges of the PM..non have any experience in aviation....so its a case of carry on regardless....poor tax payers will have to foot all the bills.....what a sad state of affairs

    Airline management requires very top proven personalities and professionals with high reputation. Sri lankans, who have served foreign Airlines with high rate of success should be the best choice. Not failures! Again, a dragging issue.

    Ranjith Fernando will be good as he is a banker, accountant and lawyer. But all depends on who will be CEO. This must be given to an experienced international aviation professional like Tim Clark of Emirates.

    Who are these guys what are their backgrounds.Normally government finds only rotten eggs.

    mrm Monday, 02 April 2018 08:58 PM

    Haraka Monday, 02 April 2018 08:59 PM

    Did someone say check the family tree of the new Board members?Why? It the tree from which all the Rilawa,s come from....

    kondaya77 Monday, 02 April 2018 10:08 PM

    No one from Singapore? Mahendra's son for instance.

    MAD DOG Monday, 02 April 2018 10:49 PM

    WHO ARE THESE LOTS. HAVE THEY GOT ENOUGH EXPERIENCE TO RUN A BUSINESS. HAVE THEY GOT AIRLINE EXPERIENCE. WHO IS THE NEW CEO. WE KEEP ON APPOINTING FRIENDS AND FAMILIES TO RUN DOWN THE AIRLINE. HOW ABOUT APPOINTING RAJAPAKSES FAMILY. THEY HAVE THE EXPERIENCE TO RUN IT DOWN QUICKLY.

    Eesh Monday, 02 April 2018 11:30 PM

    They intentionally destroy the air line and then claim that a government can't manage an airline.

    shav Tuesday, 03 April 2018 03:30 PM

    Lol this is crazy... non airline professionals in director board with an air-force ex pilot and commander in this civil organizations. who appointed these crazy buggers. May be they have personal abilities but this is an airline. failed airline. need a good professional team to avoid sinking .Further run by a pilot (similar to educated rich bus driver by profession).
