What has happened to the Sri Lankan airlines route to Melbourne? It was supposed to start in November 2015 but never happened

Sri Lankan were recently slugged with a $170m penalty for cancelling an order of 4x A350s, and they also sub-leased 4x A330s to PIA. I think they've re-evaluated their priorities.

SriLankan never announced or confirmed the route (despite what I've seen reported elsewhere) - they were merely considering it and how the schedule might fit as part of their broader network, according to SriLankan HQ, but ultimately this did not go ahead.
Thanks for the info
