About

Hi, I’m Jess I’m 23 and I’m from Leeds, England. I graduated from the University of Reading in 2015 with a degree in Human Geography and on September 25th 2015 I began a new chapter of my life by moving to Dubai to become cabin crew with Emirates Airline.

      I just submitted an online application and went to one of the open days in London, from there I worked through the recruitment process and got my golden call in July 2015. It wasn’t easy but it wasn’t awful ๐Ÿ™‚

        Ah that’s disappointing, try other airlines as I know not all have the same height restrictions!

    Hi Jessica, I am 4cm off from their height requirements, should I bother attending an open day assessment day?

      If you’re under the height requirements you wouldn’t get the job as you have to be able to reach the emergency equipment etc!

    Hi!! I have a question… they say that you can bring when you join 50kgs baggage, but how many bags/suitcases did you take with you?? And apart from the 50Kgs, is it possible to have cabin luggage?? thank you!!!

      You can have two suitcases weighing 50kg plus hand luggage! I had just the two cases as my family were visiting 6 weeks later and brought another case for me then. Some people were charged for going over, others were let off, depends on the airport!

    Hello Jessica! Congrats for your blog! I am shortsighted but I use contact lenses! Are there any vision restrictions for emirates?

      I’m unsure as I have 20/20 vision. There are crew wearing glasses however there’ll be more information on the website about that!
