For Srilankan Airilnes' summer schedule, frequencies to Dubai, Trivandrum, Kuwait, and Doha have been increased, the Gulf cities have been combined with other Gulf routes probably operating on a "circle route" basis. Kuala Lumpur goes up to five a week(as a stopover one the eight Singapore flights)
However, Bangkok gets a 4th weekly service (not operating through to Hong Kong) and London gets an eight flight: six non-stop and two via the Maldives.
I have always thought that after it lost 4 plans back in July 2001, that its remaining fleet was already operating to a very tight schedule. How can they "spare" extra hours for this London flight? As far as I am aware they are not getting back any lost aircraft in the near future.
Anyone know more?
