January 2020 Roster

First roster of 2020 is here and it’s an incredibly mixed bag to start the year with, in January I shall be heading to:

MEL – Melbourne, Australia Layover
LGW – London Gatwick, UK Layover
LED – St Petersburg, Russia Layover
AMS – Amsterdam, The Netherlands Layover
IAD – Washington, USA Layover
SKT – Sialkot, Pakistan Turn Around

First up is a trip to Melbourne in Australia, I NEVER get sent here, so it was a nice surprise to see this on my roster. Unsure of the plan, but I know I’ll be so tired there after a busy few days over Christmas and New Year and my body always seems to struggle whenever I go east, so strange. But will see what I end up doing.

Following on from this is a trip to London Gatwick and on a weekend too which is nice! Will be great to catch up with friends for dinner and drinks.

Next up is a new destination for me and one that I’ve been wanting to visit for the longest time, which is St Petersburg in Russia. It looks the most beautiful city and I can’t wait to explore and tick it off the list. Anyone has any recommendations, please do let me know!

Back to Europe again but this time for a two day layover in Amsterdam which is really exciting, not been back to Amsterdam since summer 2017! This doesn’t often happen to get two day layovers in Europe and what’s even better is my mum has booked a flight to join me too. Can’t wait to spend some quality time together and explore the museums and the city further.

After this is ANOTHER ULR (ultra long range), it’s always intense to get two ULRs in a month especially when they’re opposite ends of the world. It’s been a while since I was last in Washington DC and I didn’t get a chance to do everything I wanted to do, so will be good to tick off those final sights!

And ending the month is my one and only turn around to Sialkot in Pakistan. So a varied mixed bag with lots of flying hours. Stay posted for how I spend my time in each of these cities. And as always, feel free to follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube:

    You’ll love Melbourne, there is so much to do here even if it’s just a short stopover and perfect timing with the Australian Open Tennis.


    1. I didn’t do very much unfortunately as it rained the entire time I was there!

    Sweety, can I ask you something. Because the flight from Dubai to Australia and New Zealand is so long, do cabin crew get longer layovers? Or is It strictly 24 hours?


    1. Hi Aqeelah,
      When we fly from Dubai our layover in Auckland is 55 hours, when we fly from Bali to Auckland it is 24 hours.
