SriLankan lifts frequent flyers

Even as the national carrier SriLankan Airlines continues its disturbing nosedive, those at the top are flying high, apparently.

Among the new directors tasked to clean up a wasteful and corrupt State entity are several who are domiciled in other countries.  The benefits of being Directors of an airline company are obvious. 

Another newly appointed director is an avid cricket fan who frequently goes abroad to watch international matches.  Again the benefits are obvious. 

An ailing company would need full-time attention of competent people, one would think. Instead directorships are being passed around as gifts, it is alleged.

Most disturbingly, the man who has to take a large share of responsibility for the company’s woes remains in charge.  Is it because his brother-in-law is a business partner of one the new directors, people are wondering.
