“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…

Popping To Paris

Another rostered flight for me which was a nice surprise. It had been such a long time since I’d last flown to Paris so I was excited to visit a city I’m so very fond of. Departing Dubai at 8:45am it was 6 hours and 55 minutes over to Charles De Gaulle International Airport. Landing…

Back To Bangkok

I was actually rostered this flight to Thailand rather than pulled from standby, so that was a nice change! We departed Dubai at 3:40am and it was 6 hours 30 minutes over to Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok. Landing at 1:30pm, we made our way over to the hotel and I arranged to meet one…

Exploring Entebbe

I was on 6am – 10am Airport Standby and as I had had two days off prior, I was legally rested for ANY trip. This could have been a ULR (ultra long range) or a 6 day multisector trip. So my case was absolutely packed out with clothes for all trips. I had a bikini…

A Jaunt To Jo’Burg

I was on home standby from 8am – 2pm and was pulled for a flight to Johannesburg in South Africa. It had been two years since I was last in Johannesburg and I was happy to finally receive a layover and be escaping the heat of Dubai for the winter of South Africa. Landing at…

How To Become Emirates Cabin Crew

Now I’ve had a lot of messages recently as we’ve once more opened recruitment so I thought I would write a post on it, that way whenever anyone asks I can give you all the best answer. I did all my recruitment three years ago, and I’m sure it’s changed since then, but there are…
