How I would have used the $7000 Compensation for the Emirates Airline Plane Crash

On August 3rd, a plane coming from India to Emirates has experienced a crash while landing.  As a result, and as law dictates, the airline had to pay around $1,570 to each one of the passengers to make up for the lost belongings. However; an additional number of $5,000 was given for any other damages that the passengers may have suffered during the incident. With 282 passengers, the sum rounds about 7.25 million Dirhams in compensation and damages. The cherry on top is that the airline offered a full refund for the tickets.

Those $7000 would give you around 62,164EGP. Doesn’t that make you sort of wish you had the money? Here are 10 things that you probably would’ve used this amount of money for…

“You probably can have your dream Euro trip, and visit as many places as you want with $7000. I mean, you need to cheer yourself up after the crash, right? Work will understand.”

Euro Trip

If you say you never dreamed of backpacking through Europe, then you are probably lying. You probably can have your dream Euro trip, and visit as many places as you want with $7000. I mean, you need to cheer yourself up after the crash, right? Work will understand.

 

Upgrade from Boreo to Oreo

Just like that time when you were a child and your dad bought a TV subscription and you started watching the Disney channel instead of Spacetoon. Why not pamper yourself? Broken iPhone? No need to fix it in Serag mall, just buy another one. Breakfast at Starbucks? What am I? A peasant? I eat at Paul now every day!

Buy a Chalet Somewhere

Everyone knows that chalets are expensive to buy. My dreams of having a place in Hacienda vanished when I heard about the prices. However, maybe with the money, you’d be able to find a nice summerhouse to go to whenever you so please!

 

Paying your Debts

If your summer to Hacienda dream didn’t vanish like it did for me and you had to somehow buy a place using a loan, or borrowing from a very generous friend. Now you can just pay off all the things you couldn’t before and sleep easy for the first time in months.

Relaxing Day at the Spa

When you have to leave two hours early to go to work every day because of the horrible traffic on the 6th of October bridge, only to find out there is no place to park because you arrived late, it makes you want to start WWIII. Why not go to a spa and forget about all the daily morning stress?

 

And Finally…

You can always be a nice person and put the money aside for important matters in the future, or you can donate some of the money to charities. Personally, I would’ve quit my job and started my own business, but this is my imagination and I still have to finish this article to receive my paycheck for the month.
