Memorial Day Weekend In California

A swap from Los Angeles to San Francisco  and it was a lengthy sixteen hours across to the other side of the world. Landing at 2pm, we made our way out of the airport and across to the hotel. Most people were exhausted after a really busy day and the eleven hour time difference from…

A Holiday To The Big Apple: Part Two

Continuing on from my last post, we finished up brunch at The Butcher’s Daughter and went back to the hotel to change and freshen up after Soul Cycle before we continued on with our day a couple of hours later. We caught the subway uptown to near the top of Central Park and strolled through…

A Holiday To The Big Apple: Part One

I really apologise for the lack of posts recently, I know I said this in my last post however I genuinely haven’t done much on my layovers other than visit the UK. Sadly on my trip to Bangkok I slept through my alarm and just ended up getting my nails done which I was so…

La La Land

I’d tried to swap this flight for one to New York, but who doesn’t want to go to New York at Christmas time? So it was on with a sixteen and a half hour flight to Los Angeles for me. Leaving Dubai at 8:45am, we arrived at lunch time into LAX International Airport. After getting…

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…

“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…

Meeting In Manhattan

I’d not done a ULR (ultra long range) flight in almost 8 months before Boston and here I am with my second one in the space of two weeks. So it was back stateside but this time to New York, flying into Newark Liberty International rather than JFK. Departing Dubai at 3am, it was 14…

Brief Boston

A flight I’ve been bidding for, for over a year now, to see my friend Guya. And I’m more than happily pulled out for it at the back end of my reserve month. Happy happy days. Departing Dubai at 8:15am, it was 14 hours over to Boston Logan International Airport in the US. Landing just…
