Yes, I appreciate that a failure of passengers to pay voluntarily might have caused the flat rate system to be introduced. But in a civilised society the salary I pay my employees should be enough for my employees to live a decent standard of life. Any tips are, or should be, a bonus. HAL condemn themselves in their unambiguous statement that the $11 per passenger per day is a critical element in the pay structure of their staff. In other words they would be poorly paid if the $11 were not forthcoming. Yes, I am sure it is cultural. In this respect only (i.e. tipping), I know which culture I prefer.
