Next time you fly with Emirates, ask any aircrew how the company treat them: poor wages (AED 10,000 a month), un human working hours (they are flying more than 120 hours per month), not enough money to eat when they are abroad, etc.
Also ask how the company is punishing them with written warnings from not cleaning the airplane before they disembark to collecting salt and pepper shakers! Even salad dressings they need to recycle!
For sure the quality of service will go down the hill and the amount of people leaving the company has already grown. They are trying to hire enough people but the numbers doesn't cover the ones leaving.
Now think twice if you would work in shifts with poor working conditions like that!

It's all just mumbo jumbo... They are digging their own grave by not rewarding employees. They won't care and the service level will deteriorate. It's a natural process.

In honest business, it means cheating. Such profits are ridiculous and lopsided especially when they are not a monopoly. Earn profits like you take salt in food. I saw several times the flight is filled only a quarter but EK they dont reduce fares.
