A Merry Little Manchester

It’s not often I write on Manchester as I usually go home, but with my parents away on holiday and my sister at uni, I had decided to stay in Manchester. It also coincided with my friends birthday perfectly and she had taken the day off work, so we decided to go for afternoon tea…

Spectacular South Africa

Bringing me back from my leave was a trip to Cape Town, which is a favourite destination of mine and one that I had been looking forward to since I saw it on my November roster. We flew out of Dubai International Airport at 4am and landed 9 hours 30 minutes later into South Africa…

Kudos To Krakow

Time for me to head on leave again, and me and a couple of my friends from home, Lucy and Amy, had decided to visit Krakow in Poland. It was somewhere I’d wanted to visit for a while due to it being a very cheap city break, being rich in culture and very close to…

A Six Day Trip: Singapore and Melbourne

I managed to swap my Kuala Lumpur and London Heathrow flights for a six day trip to Singapore and Melbourne. I’d not visited either of these destinations since my first of flying almost three years ago now, so I was happy to be going back there and getting three layovers rather than just two. We…

November 2018 Roster

A very underwhelming roster to receive, it seems a good few hours will be spent on the swaps page sorting out my November. Hey ho, that’s how it is sometimes. In November I shall be going to…

Enticing Edinburgh

One of our newest destinations on the Emirates Network is to the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh. I was excited to see this on my roster as I’d never been to Edinburgh, and I never seem to get the new destinations this quickly. Departing Dubai at 9:55am, it was 7 hours and 10 minutes over to…

Memorable Miami

A trip I’d been wanting for a long time, and I was happy to see Fort Lauderdale pop up on my roster. Our layovers here are between two and a half days to five days long, but we’d been placed on an extra flight and were only getting 33 hours here sadly. When the pilots…

On To Oktoberfest

Something I had wanted to tick off my bucket list for a while was to visit Munich during Oktoberfest, and I finally managed to visit this year! We departed Dubai at 16:30 and it was a lovely 5 hours 50 minutes over to Flughafen München. Landing around 9pm, we checked in but half the rooms…

A Working Day Timeline

I’ve had a few people ask me how a working day pans out, each day is incredibly different dependent on the route and the timing of the flight. So on my recent 7h53m flight I thought write about how it goes, so that for those of you who are interested in the actual job itself…

“New York, New York, a city so nice, they named it twice”

I’m not quite sure how I managed to pull this off, but I managed to swap my three long back to back turn arounds, (Dhaka, Bombay and Mashad) for a flight to New York! I was beyond happy to see this swap, and got planning what would be a fun filled trip. We departed Dubai…
