The biggest problem crews face is they are faced with multiple trips of differing nature with each needing specific sleep plans. If EK wanted to do it properly they would do data gathering as well as listen to the crews. This is FRM at its best. Judging by the amount of feedback on this topic I suspect this may not be the case.
The Fatigue Risk Management at EK is a farce. It's only there to pretend this is a properly regulated airline. It's not.

I don't think EK crews are ever on local time. A daytime departure or landing at the home base is sort of an abnormal situation. I am sure they will introduce a special checklist for day light landings eventually.
