It’s time for another roster post, and next month I actually have a new destination! That’s two months in a row with new places to explore, one of the main reasons I chose this job.

After nearly 6 and a half years here, it feels like I get some of the same destinations quite frequently, but there are still new routes launching all the time for me to tick off the list. 

Next month I’ll be heading off to:

  • MAA – Chennai, India (Turnaround)
  • Annual Leave
  • KBL – Kabul, Afghanistan (Turnaround)
  • GVA – Geneva, Switzerland
  • MUC – Munich, Germany
  • IAD – Washington D.C., USA
  • BRU – Brussels, Belgium

Starting off the month with a turnaround to Chennai and back, which is quite a long one (blocked at 4 hours each way), just before my leave starts.

I then have a week off, and I think I’ll fly home and see my family this time. I haven’t had a Stansted layover in a while (the last one was on my birthday in October!) so it’ll be nice to spend some time at home in spring.

After my leave is another turnaround, this time to Kabul and back. I’m hoping that somehow I might be able to swap this for a day off to extend my leave but I’m also realistic that this doesn’t happen often!

Up next is a trip to Geneva – I was originally rostered Moscow and when someone sent me the swap I jumped at the chance to visit Geneva again (and more importantly, eat some cheese fondue!). Last time I went was in the middle of winter so I’m hoping it’ll be much warmer now.

Then a flight to Munich, which is a nice easy layover.

Following on from that is my new destination of the month – Washington! It’s the only one of our US destinations that I haven’t visited, and although it’s just a short 24 hour layover I’m hoping to make the most of it and do some exploring.

My final trip of the month is a 42 hour layover in Brussels. I’ve been here before in summer and I really enjoyed it, and due to the runway closure in Dubai we have some extended layovers, so I’ll try and get to Bruges this time, which I’ve heard is just beautiful.

I’m looking forward to ticking off a new destination, as well as re-visiting some old favourites.

It’s that time of the month again!

Another exciting roster ahead as Emirates will shortly be launching a new destination which makes it super easy for me to go home on a layover, Stansted Airport! Perhaps not as exciting for all the crew who think of it as “London” Stansted, but great news for me.

So here goes, my roster for June, starting off the month landing from my flight to Dallas, and then:

  • Leave
  • BRU – Brussels, Belgium
  • STN – London Stansted, UK
  • STN – London Stansted, UK
  • KBL – Kabul, Afghanistan
  • AMM – Amman, Jordan
  • BAH – Bahrain, Bahrain
  • CDG – Paris, France
  • BRU – Brussels, Belgium

As you can see, despite having leave it’s still a very busy month. I actually don’t have any plans as of yet for the leave – so if anyone has any suggestions for a nice European getaway, I’m all ears!

Back to flying with a trip to Brussels, I visited this city with my best friend Lucy when we went inter-railing almost 6 years ago, but haven’t been back since. I’m thinking of heading to Bruges on one of the layovers, following in the footsteps of a fellow Emirates blogger here.

Then it’s two trips home to Stansted, one of which is on my mum’s birthday – what a lovely surprise! I most likely won’t be blogging about these ones as I’ll probably just be relaxing at home with my family.

After that it’s a bit of a tough week – three back to back turnarounds to Kabul, Amman, and Bahrain, and  a Paris straight after. It’s actually been a while since I’ve been to Paris, you can read about my last visit (in 2014!) here (with a friend I made through my blog!).

Lastly another layover in Brussels. As I have two trips to Belgium next month, perhaps I will try and swap one, so stay tuned!
