I am fairly sure Fly Dubai and the major operators out of OMAA, OTBD and OMSJ all received bonuses.

We all have a fair idea of how the company faired financially this year, in my opinion there are only two people in the company who know, and determine what kind of bonus (not profit share) there will be; Sheikh Ahmed and Tim Clark.

Much has been achieved in the last 12 months, and the airline has further positioned itself for sustainable future success in the ever recovering market. The amount received will be a clear barometer of how our leaders value our efforts, not only for contributing to the performance of the company over the last year, but also for what they have done to guarantee the future success of Emirates.

Dropp, you mention that we got the A380's for 'Next to free'. May I ask where you got that incredibly commercially sensitive info from? This is the kind of info that only the very top level of airline and manufacturer management are party to.

For this reason I can only assume that you are indeed either TC or HH. Therefore, please put us out of our misery and let us know what the profit share (PBUH) is going to be? Cheers.

..........

Think about it buddy, do you honestly think that a manufacturer would 'give away' aircraft AND pay hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation to boot? Do you really think a bank would lend EK money for a free aircraft?

The point being, if you don't have anything useful to contribute, then please spare us the effort of reading your posts..... Thanks

If there is nothing other than the increment the top pay group go without again. Rember the increment isn't a pay rise.

I'm not a management apologist in any way at all, but isn't this to be considered as a good thing?

We all moan about working 100 hours a month so being made to work less is not something we can really complain about now is it? I'm happy to sacrifice the $$$$ for a better lifestyle (yes, I know up to 92 hrs is still tough - just making a point).

Cat-- I agree completely!!!

Of course, they will pull a flight, leave you on AD and call you for a series of night flights with low hours. Not sure which is worse!!

Not always! I was rostered 91+, swapped a flight which put me on 92. All quite "legal" in the EK rules. Now my top bid flight (to see family) has been taken!

They could have easily given notice & started this next month

If we are that desperate for the money, it sends a bad message to the outside world & presumably kills off any hope for a profit share

Should i give a nasty sarcastic response or just log off and return to playing with the kids?

The days of 14 week profit shares are long gone. The airline is way too big now to dish out that kind of money, regardless of how much profit we make. There are too many variables these days (closure of one of DXB's rwys, fuel prices always seems to be mentioned on every update, Hello Qantas, new uniform, holding, factoring, A380s, earthquake 20 mins ago etc etc........). There will always be a reason to safe guard most of the money made rather than share it to 53,285 employees.

3% and 4 weeks

We'll see

I'm led to believe that FlyDubai got 3 weeks and Etihad (Shhhhh) got 4.

Saving face would argue 3-4 weeks

flydubai got the following announcement from their CEO:
.... to acknowledge the efforts of the flydubai team in achieving the successful launch of the airline and its first full year of profitability in 2012, it is my pleasure to inform you that our Chairman, HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, has announced a special one-time profit share payout of three (3) weeks of basic pay to all current team members who have been in service with flydubai for at least six (6) months as of 31 December 2012.
And they introduced a Profit Share Scheme for financial year 2013.
