3 posts, he's just playing up. Am sure the money was reshuffled so "DNATA" made enormous profits while poor "EMIRATES AIRLINE" just barely missed the profit target, while still making the biggest profit in history.

The profit is the group not the airline and includes DNATA. Mind you never let the truth get in the way of a good rumour.

Rumour has it that the bonus was announced at EGHQ and it's is 'zilch/ zip/ notta'.

Can anyone confirm or deny this? Hoping it's BS.

We'll know when the profit share has been announced as all the investment companies will be ringing like never before!

Understand it is nada, zero, zilch. Nothing, empty space, a lack of anything, an absent of matter.0 .

They wouldn't call a meeting to announce if it's zero. We would simply get an email like last year. Someone's just winding you up.

However, I think that's exactly how it happened in 2009.

I am expecting something along the lines of: " Very good year, everybody worked hard - BUT due to the $500 million cargo centre at DWC and some bond repayments this has resulted in not meeting the profit target "...

Such is life.

And here I thought it was only the financial result they would announce not the profit share...

I think historically they've been announced together, no?

But I agree the announcement is regarding financial results NOT the share of the profits.

Ergo, we may hear nothing more than if we exceeded the target or not (as we know this was set at 3.5 bn AED).

EDIT: Should also add: We won't about any step increase or pay rise until the pay review is announced by email...

400 million AED short of the target, so no bonus!

500 million on the cargo centre down the road.

What did I tell ya?

Of course the threshold is increased to ensure they don't pay again next year. Profit share is a thing of the past.

Well at least we get a shiny new uniform.

Not to worry, I'm sure the VP's, SVP's and above will be quite happy with their hefty bonuses....
