  1. Amazing how this airline makes a loss. All their tickets are exorbitantly priced. Probably explains why nobody wants to fly with them.

    The Sri Lankan business maxim appears to be: let’s provide the minimum and try and extract the maximum return. It is a short sighted strategy doomed to failure.
