I am a little skeptical of their being contract pieces too. Perhaps it is just the camera angle, however, the crest looks like an American eagle that has been tarted-up to look Arabic, rather than the UAE crest. I would think that a customer with as deep of pockets as the Emirates would have insisted on the correct artwork. Hopefully, more information will emerge at some point to clarify things.
