Well eurostarVA, interesting words. If there was a bottomless pit of money for me to spend i'd certainly be making sure my finances were transparent.
Lets see how many companys come under the Emirates heading.... shedloads. If I was the only caterer, fueling company, handling agent (DNATA - nuff said), and airport provider in DXB
then i too would make a load of money. As for the crew, if i could get gov't grants to build huge appt blocks and house them i would, becuase it would cost nothing to me as an airline becuase it was a different offshoot of the EK
umbrella of companys. Then pay the crew wages below industry standard and work there butts off because there are no union rules, but all the time throw a lavish lifestyle for them in their appartment! Its all a bit dodgy to be fair.....
lastly remember that bodge job on the 340-300 in JNB
, well as a foot note there is no longer a Weight and balance manager for EK
so get a CV
in soon, looks like he was the fall guy! As for the crew not being trained on their aircraft correctly well thats a different thread.....
Just incase you wonder where i get this info from my saudi friend, its all about who you know!
