With your due respect sir. I know exactly the topic and the title of this thread, I just simply responded to weltmeister comment .... and yes, it's a bit out of topic and I didn't start it.

I like EK's new website. Much easier and more informative

my mother used to work for Airlanka and then SL. i saw all the changes that Emirates implemented once they took over management of SL and I can say that without Emirates, SL would be anywhere as close to where it is now in terms of the quality of their product.

the sri lankan president is a corrupt moron. As an individual, its hard enough to get a seat during peak travel seasons. this idiot president shows up with 35people and demands seats and expects to actually get them? thats absolutely ridiculous. The SL government as the primary shareholder should actually understand that rather than make idiotic demands.

They are both killing innocent people back and fourth , DON'T CRITISIZE ONE SIDE ONLY because the muslim extremist are doing the same harm to innocent people. Look at the innocent 3,000 people the muslims fantatics killed in world trade center IN ONE DAY, there are women and children there too. So, shut up , stop your foolishness and go back to what the topic is all about, Emirates Airlines, this is not a political or religious discussion.

I've never been on Emirates but I'd love to fly them some day. I just can't wait to see what will happen when they receive all the planes they have on order. 55 A380's, 50 A350's, a shitload of 777's and A330's would be a sight to see.

Hopefully some 787-10's in the mix as well. I'm surprised they don't have 767's like most other large airlines do. With their seemingly unlimited budget and profitability, I'd love for them to put some Concordes back into service.

Why would they want the Concord back? It will not make any economical sense for them at all ... or did you forgot that the plane was retired after one of them crashed not because of non-profitability.

My point is that the plane will neither make money nor it will add the flashy must-have factor, otherwise BA and AF would be still flying them.


Lastly (not related to the post above), let's hope no more closed minded, ignorant idiots will show up to spoil the thread with their non-sense.

Emirates sold all of SriLankan's planes to a company which is leasing the same planes to SriLankan. Can anyone explain this?

Some Airlines buy planes and have to pay extra for their maintanance, some just lease them and the maintanance is included on the lease price. It comes all on economics and balancesheets.

You can bet if Airbus builds a supersonic jet, Emirates will definitely buy.

I don't undesrtand why some people's nationalistic feelings are insulted by a COMPETENT foreigner taking over their assets, preserving the works of thousands of locals and contributing financially to state finances, but not when the incompetent locals destroyed and wasted countries resources and hopes for decent services.

Finally. Emirates wasn't doing anything much with SriLankan and neither was SriLankan providing much benefits for Emirates anyway.

UL can become a prominent airline again if Sri Lanka's internal problems are solved. UL could do well without EK. Just make peace with them, *** damnit. The place would be so much attractive to go to.
