It’s time for another roster post over here on The Dubai Diaries! It feels like I live my life waiting for the roster each month, and then when I get it, thinking about what to bid for for next month’s roster!
In June I’ll be visiting a few old favourites, here’s my line-up for the upcoming month:
DFW – Dallas Fort Worth, USA
STN – London Stansted, UK
PRG – Prague, Czech Republic
HKG – Hong Kong
FCO – Rome, Italy
Back to Dallas – it’s only been a few months since my last two visits to Texas, but I’ll be heading back again. Since I went to a rodeo in Fort Worth last time, I’m not sure what I’ll do here.
Then is another flight to Stansted to see my family, and the sweetest little kittens that are now living with my parents!
After that I have Prague, which I don’t think I’ve visited since last summer. Originally I was rostered Lisbon, which I do love (and am a little bit sad about getting rid of!) but I swapped it, so that I’ll hopefully be able to travel home on an earlier flight for mum’s birthday.
Next up is a week of leave, as mentioned I’ll try and fly home for a bit – let’s hope the flights are not too full!
Straight after my leave I have a flight to Hong Kong. you guys will know that HKG is one of my favourite destinations. Funnily enough I didn’t actually bid for it this time around, and I got two! Sadly my friend Kirsty who lives there will be back in the UK this time.
My last flight of the month is to Rome, a place I haven’t visited for quite a while! This was originally another Hong Kong, but I decided to swap it as I won’t be able to see Kirsty anyway, and I love Europe in summer.
And just like that, that brings us to the end of June! Hope you enjoyed seeing where I’ll be flying 🙂
This month has just flown by, and we are already approaching summer! I’m at the top of the bidding group next month, but sadly didn’t actually get much that I asked for.
Nevertheless, I still have a few flights that I’m looking forward to. In May I’ll be flying to:
MLE – Male, Maldives (turnaround)
JFK – New York, USA
IKA – Tehran, Iran (turnaround)
CMB – Colombo, Sri Lanka
BP – Business Promotion Event
STN – London Stansted, UK
MUC – Munich, Germany
Starting off with a long turnaround to Male – not a very sought after flight as sadly we don’t get to stay in the Maldives!
Up next is a trip to New York, which I’m very much looking forward to as I haven’t been since Christmas 2017! Hopefully the weather will be much warmer by May as well.
After that is another turnaround, this one to Tehran and back, which is fairly short, around 2 hours each way.
Then it’s on to Colombo – I have been to Sri Lanka on holiday a couple of times, but never actually operated the flight!
Following on from that is a business promotion event, which I’m still waiting to hear details about. It’s always nice to do something a bit different – my last event was the Saudi Airshow in Riyadh!
Up next, the only trip I got that was one of my bids, a 54 hour layover in Stansted! Due to the current runway closure in DXB, some of our flights have reduced frequency, which means a longer layover for me at home, yay!
Finally I have another longer layover, 48 hours in Munich. I have been to Munich around 20 times now so hopefully I’ll be able to explore somewhere nearby as I have a bit more time than usual on this trip.
My first time visiting Washington, and I was ready to explore! After a 14 hour night flight from Dubai we touched down and made our way to the hotel.
By this time it was already 11am, so I wanted to get out and have as much of the day as possible, as the wake up call was early the next morning.
Our hotel is by the airport, so it was around a 30 minute drive into the city, where we split up to explore. One of the guys and I from the flight decided to check out the main monuments of Washington D.C.
