EK was giving refunds or "LOTS OF $$ CERTS AND MILES" (your choice) for all the 380 flights cancelled last month due to wing cracks. Did not matter what fare. If you wanted a refund, you got it. If you HAD to still go but were angry cuz you booked the 380 on purpose, then you got certs and miles,

Nothing like a little good will as an investment. I bet United wiggles out of any refunds. I can't see them giving up a dollar if they don't have to
