If he's called a conference, that's good news.

Seems to me the years we've got nada he's announced it by email- the years we've done OK he's announced it at a meeting.

lets hope...

There is a meeting each year to announce the news. The meeting is always followed by an email. Was worth a try though.

Don, in 2011 they had a stage set up in hq, media, photographers etc. That was the time we got 12 wks. I happened to be going through hq last year on the day email came. No platform, no media, no profit share. So maybe some truth in what Wiz said...

You could both well be right. Old age is dimming my senses. Fingers crossed.

This "conference" that was mentioned in the Thursday´s Groupworld email has nothing to do with the 2012 results. Sheikh Ahmed will give an opening statement at the Arabian Travel Market, that´s it.

However, if the results are good, what would be better than having them announced publicly around that time, or if not, better wait until it´s over...

Payment Date

I have been told that in the manual, not sure which one or where, that the date of the payment ( possible payment) has been changed to the end of June instead of May.

Didn't see that in the list of ammendments that normally gets sent out.

Its too quiet!

Just checked the safar from last year's annoucement. Profit share target 3.3bn AED for this year. Profit at six month point 1.7bn AED. Second half of year is always busier and no volcanoes going off this year disrupting flights neither. By my simple noddy maths we should hopefully be getting some... but I can't see it been too much unless of course they raid the cash cupboard for a top up to reward the fact we alll have to work twice as hard as previous years!

Cmmmmon lets be having it................ all the clappers are waiting

Bond Repayment

Surprised you all missed this little gem...! ...

“The Government of Dubai, acting through the Department of Finance, announces that the outstanding Dh3.34 billion of its AED Bonds due in April 2013 across the dual tranches fixed as well as floater notes issued under its Dh15 billion Medium Term Note Programme dated 14 April 2008, reached maturity on 23 April 2013,” the statement said.

Global financial institutions and analysts believe in Dubai’s strong ability to repay all outstanding obligations.
SOURCE: Home Page - Gulf in the Media

If I remember rightly the reason for last years lack of bonus was mainly quoted as being:

19 juni 2012 - Business Intelligence Middle East

Emirates repays US$550 million bond, looks at Islamic debt for future financing
Emirates, the world's largest airline by international traffic, will look at Islamic debt for future financing after paying a US$550 million sukuk.
What is the possibility of some of the Dubai Inc. bonds listed being part of EK's agreements?

It's purely cynical of me to point this out, BUT:

Bond Repayment = AED 3.3bn approx.
Profit Target = AED 3.3bn approx.

So confident am I, that if wrong I promise to turn up to work on the New Uniform Rollout Day wearing nothing but my (rather excellent quality I must say) gold-braided Skipper's hat.

Here's the truth...

If they don't have the decency to announce that they are not going to announce it, then clearly expect nothing!

The quietness is deafening, sad to say it but this looks like the new norm for the company from here on.

The most reward you can get is to stop the waiting and wishing as they have made us all work more for less, made us robotic with fear and know that your staff number should really be entered into the MEL as an aircraft part which is replaceable.

Carry On, no profit share here! Edit, be grateful you are not being salary deducted for your new shiny badge haha, it's free....how grateful should we all be?
