Cos it's a strategy, loss leader type of thing.Suspect it'll end up very much like Ryanair...i.e. charge shedloads per extra kilo;bank loans for an inflight coffee and pkt of salt'n vinegar, one visit only to loo per flight,fleet of cropsprayers etc etc
best insert a smilie

See Emirates are supposedly intro 'free kids flights/access to attractions' from July to try and boost visitor numbers.
In the bigger picture,honestly think the strange looking police chief who called for abolition of sponsorship yesterday is much more on the right path towards resucitating the economy......

Less than revenue from potential investors turned off by the intrusive, protracted & anachronistic bureaucracy methinks

Do you mean the influx of 'more' illegal immigrants?
There are a high number of previously legal immigrants now illegal in UAE becos of the Sponsorship system.

if they do cancel sponsorship they will introduce something else, like charging 3000 dirhams for the ID card which will definately become compulsory
