Emirates goes stingy with economy passengers
IF YOU’RE going to fly economy class on Emirates Airlines long haul anytime soon be forewarned: They’re cutting back on expenses so bring some of your own snacks and drinks.
Despite making a record profit of more than $900 million in their last year of operations, Emirates is cutting back so much in its economy class that its affecting their catering on board long flights. I experienced this a few weeks ago flying with them from Sao Paulo to Dubai and back. The flight is more than 14 hours nonstop and is usually packed. So it is obvious that Emirates is not losing money on this route, but is in fact making a good profit on it.
