Actually the last time was the best in terms of workload for EK personnel imo .
Finally enough crew to cover the flights ,,sufficient ground crew loaders , redcaps and check in staff etc, engineering could catch up on deferred items .
Fly Dubai et al banished to DWC , ATC not overloaded ... almost felt like a proper operation ! Bring it on !

I agree. It was awesome. Flew 4 hours for the month of May and the operation was flawless.

Last time, it was great time. No holdings, no delay, everything works perfect. There was big expectation, how it will collaps and the result was, one of the best time in EK.

Looks like the timing will be around Ramadan when many services are reduced for that period.
