EVERYTHING is not fraud…..
Today the Yahapalana idiots are begging China……to come back with $$$….to develop SL….
Where is the Millions….they were sure that US – UK – EU….would give SL…..??
plus the Billions….hidden in Banks worldwide… MR regime…nothing has come / will not come to SL…..because it will also expose the dealings of previous UNP & CBK……
SriLankan Airlines on the advice of One World Alliance…..purchased for the future long range planes that can fly beyond SL to US – Canada – UK – EU – Australia…..
other airlines in One World Alliance would also send Sri Lankan their excess passengers…..
the Yahapalana idoits wants Sri Lankan Airlines….to be a Regional airline……
just to India & up to 4 hour flights by buying only single aisle planes……giving up profitable traffic from SL to Europe…
they do NOT understand Airline Accounting….claiming “Losses”…..check the rest of the world’s airlines…..ALL major USA airlines operating under Bankruptcy protection….
next the claim that SL is a small island with just 22 million poor people….Check Emirates Airlines…..the airline of Dubai……( Yes !!!1….Dubai is Oil rich….but with a tiny population….)
Emirates …. fly only long range Super Jumbo jets…..A 380 & B 777….they utilized their geographic position…..SL has the same geographic position…..the Yahapalana faggots / Lady-boys….do not understand….except claiming that every Economic Development is a fraud…..soon they may claim that defeating 30 years of LTTE terror is also a fraud….
President MR…..had a “Grand Vision”…..for Sri Lanka….
Sri Lanka state airline reviewing Airbus A350 deal; criminal probe on
Thu, Feb 11, 2016, 09:17 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.
Feb 11 (ECONOMYNEXT) Sri Lanka is reviewing a deal to acquire eight airbus A350 aircraft which was to be deployed on loss-making long haul routes to Europe and criminal probe was ongoing, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said.

“We are discussing with Airbus whether the A350s could be changed to aircraft suited for regional routes,” Wickremesinghe told parliament.

He said cancelling the order would force state-run SriLankan Airlines to pay a penalty of 1.2 million US dollars per aircraft

The aircraft was to be deployed on long haul routes to Europe which were all making losses. 

SriLankan Airlines officials said at the time that phasing out gas guzzling A340 and A330 aircraft would reduce the cost of long haul routes.

But Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said there appeared to have been no feasibility study before ordering the aircraft. 

Sri Lanka’s financial crimes police was probing the deal, he said.

The aircraft were ordered by the regime of ex-President Mahinda Rajapaksa, whose family members were closely involved in running it. 

President Maithripala Sirisena cancelled the order for one aircraft which was to have a VIP suite.

He said SriLankan Airlines had lost 17 billion rupees in 2012, 26 billion rupees in 2013, 31 billion rupees in 2014 and 16 billion rupees in 2015 due to lower oil prices.

The airline had been making losses since 2006 when President Rajapaksa took back the privatized airline from Emirates.
