Final Festive Feels In Frankfurt

A new destination for myself and one I was looking forward to. I was going to be ticking off the final Emirates destination in Germany with the city of Frankfurt. A nice and easy 6 hours over to Frankfurt Am Main Flughafen where we landed in the evening. However, after landing when we got on…

Heading To Hong Kong

Apologies once more on the silence on the blog, what is it about the festive period that just makes everyone so busy!? Anyway, since my last post I flew to Houston where for the first time in a very long time I did nothing with my layover. The crew weren’t bothered for very much and…

Winter In Washington

I managed to swap one of my Houston flights for a trip to the US capital, Washington DC! It’s a shorter layover but gave me a longer weekend in Dubai and I was happy to visit a and tick off a new destination. Departing Dubai at 02:25, it was a long 15 hours over to…

An Adventure Across Africa

I apologise for the silence on the blog recently. Since my last post on Dublin, I was Home on 5 days off for a friend from home wedding! Then straight after that it was back to Manchester as crew which I never really write on as it isn’t overly exciting, then I had a few…

Inviting Ireland

It was an early start waking up at 3am for work, however I was looking forward to ticking off country number 52 and also taking my mum to work with me! Departing Dubai at 7am, it was 8 hours and 10 minutes over to Dublin Airport. I don’t know how she managed to pull this…

A Journey To Japan

Finally I was heading back to Japan with a new destination for myself of Osaka! We departed Dubai at 3am and it was a nice 8 hours and 50 minutes over to Kansai International Airport. With 2 hours in the CRC rest and a nice and easy flight over, I was excited to explore a…

Lively London

I was rostered to be heading to Colombo with a transit stop in the Maldives, however someone sent me a swap for a London Heathrow flight which was over the weekend too, so I quickly accepted and got arranging what I knew would be a busy trip! Landing at 8pm after a very busy flight,…

Shakespeare In Stratford-Upon-Avon

My first layover back after my leave and I was back to the UK with the destination of Birmingham. My Mum had said she would come and spend my layover with me, so after our 7 and a half our flight across, she met me in the lobby and I changed before heading out for…

Back To Beijing

A destination I was actually trying to swap for a turn around because one of my good friends from Home was in Dubai and this was the only chance I would catch her before my leave! However trying to swap this flight it seems was more difficult than drawing blood from a stone, so hey…

An Adventure To Argentina

The next leg of our multi sector was over to Buenos Aires in Argentina which was a new destination and country for me to tick off, and also marked my 50th country visited. How exciting?? We departed Rio de Janeiro at 16:05 and it was 3 hours and 19 minutes over to Ministro Pistarini International…

Remarkable Rio

You may be shocked to see this on my roster if you know anything about trying to get this flight with Emirates as crew. Our flight to Rio de Janerio is a multi sector trip also to Buenos Aires in Argentina, and is our most sought after destination as crew. After two years of flying…

Relaxing Russia

I wasn’t overly looking forward to this trip as I’ve previously visited Moscow. I’d been trying to swap off it, but with flying legalities and my next roster duties and this trip only covering two days rather than the usual three  I was limited with swap options and no one accepted any of my swaps….
