Whatever the profit share is,remember: Each day of profit share is only worth about 50% of what it was 4 years ago.

As is your every Dirham....

Still very quiet, doesn't bode well.
When do they normally announce it?

Think it should be announced towards the end of the month- somewhere about the 27th I think.

And when is the bonus being paid (assuming there is one)? In May?

Very mysterious ekpilot! nice number though.
During 9 years with my previous employer I received one pen as a bonus and that was a first class give away that they were unable to give away! It never did work.
So far in EK I've received around 6 months in bonus payments. That may not be as much as some other airlines may have paid but it's a lot more than most.
If our boss wants to give me a bonus I'll take it and be grateful.
How some guys can be p_ssed off about being given extra cash is beyond me.

Nobody is p-ssed of with extra cash SW. I would replace 'given' with earned and 'grateful' with deserved...

You and I have been here long enough to know that as our productivity and therefore profits go up, the profit share goes down as they figure out devious new ways of undercalculating the years figures. I consider it part of my pay and I need it to pay off the bills to mount up over the year.

I would however rather see the profit share replaced by a decent pay rise and an index linked rise every year instead of the begging bowl approach we have now.

But that is the problem as I see it, it is not part of our pay and if you think of it as such it will never be enough.
I simply choose to be happy with any bonus and vent my anger at the real problems as you correctly put it :- a decent pay rise and an index linked rise every year instead of the begging bowl approach we have now.

I find it much easier to be happy sometimes rather than angry and upset all the time. It makes working and living here easier. Cheers.

Considering all the trash we normally get, one would have thought this would be a major feature on the portal. Maybe even merit an email or FCN. Can't find anything offical on the Profit Share - can anyone help? I want to read it for myself.

Likewise is there anything on the Utility Allowance, Education Allowance or Phone? (No harm in being hopeful....)

Perhaps they've introduced an I.T. allowance so I can do all their homework, buy some printer cartridges and read their manuals on a decent size screen. That might be wishful thinking but then I've had a few beers....

With apologies to thread creep, I can't find anything either. So went to "corporate applications" and that too is gone other than remote crew access (that does nothing). No TRIPS, No Predictions, No link to "Group World". What's going on?

Hopefully some of our Profit Share will be invested in a decent I.T. provider.

My wish list is a simple log in to everything, logical menus, less photos of smiling people getting awards, no dead links, no plug-ins that apparently give them full access to my PC. I could go on.

By the way who manages the portal? Or is it done by committee? Perhaps its run by Flight Ops - now that would explain a lot.

Back to the Profit Share - step by step, where can I find the announcement on that blogger website they call the Portal.

Somebody call the Duty Manager and tell him...

Surely as we are required to get everything from Web or disk this consitutes an emergency?

Please tell me the link to order grog and get the EK discount is still there.

New FCI,
Unfortunately we cannot accept resignations on an ad-hoc basis, you are required to make an appointment with your flight manager. This will ease congestion in the hallways and car parks.
