    Excellent decision by Mr Attanayake. Airliners are just too busy in making money not the service as the passangers would expect.

    Foreign investors

    be aware, you be charged and bullied by the authorities in Colombo rather than the peoples in lanka.

    [why didn`t he use the state owned airline the srilankan airline ? one would imagine, specially if he is a politician he should pay to his own country airline rather than using and paying to a foreign owned airline.]

    now he is after 10mln. no wounder why!!

    This reminds me of one of my Trip to an Arabian Country where the Airline Attendant (MALE) ordered me to hide and or remove the Cross from my Chain.

    One thing we have to remember, the Politicians Action is right and it will be taken into consideration by the Foreign Airline. What happen`s if this is Sri Lankan Airline?????????

    No one disputes the treatment in the middle east if you are not a Muslim.

    where ever you are ,you are expected to go by the land of the law is understandable. when it comes to srilanka a failed state and a begging nation in the world cannot afford to loose a business, specially a foreign one.

    it is the job of the politicians to safe guard the foreign investment. imagine if the Qatar airways pull out of Colombo air port, how many maids should be sent to the middle east to get the revenue once produced by Qatar?

    if the politician acts in a way to expel a foreign investor then how on earth the south going to sort the national question?

    yes, the politician may have experienced mis treatment or the politician expected too much from a cheap airline or he may be late to get to the airline on that particular day. whatever it is, it is not the way a politician could act at this time and towards the foreign investor!!
