I agree to a point but in years gone they spent millions on marketing and done very well, in fact our marketing department is one of the strongest dept in the airline... Problem is they havnt account for other airlines like QR expanding and hitting EK where it hurts. Their business model is better equipped to deal with a downturn with more efficient planes unlike EK where they ordered and ordered thinking the whole world will keep flying EK via Dubai... THe EK model is failing BIGTIME!!!!!
