I was pretty happy to start the month off with a brand new destination – Fort Lauderdale, Florida! The flight over from Dubai is long, around 15 hours, but since it departs in the middle of the night most of our passengers in first class went straight to sleep. Leaving us to somehow power through and stay awake!

With plenty of tea and coffee and chats getting to know the rest of the crew, we finally made it. Approaching Florida we were greeted by these gorgeous views below, which made all of us excited to finally touch down!

Next month it’s finally my “top bid” – the month where I should get the flights that I ask for!

I’ll be starting the month off with a couple of days off, before heading to:

  • FLL – Fort Lauderdale, USA
  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
  • FLL – Fort Lauderdale, USA
  • KWI – Kuwait (turnaround)
  • RUH – Riyadh, KSA (turnaround)
  • HKT – Phuket, Thailand
  • HKT – Phuket, Thailand

So as you can guess, I did get a couple of flights that I asked for!

Fort Lauderdale is somewhere that we haven’t been flying to for very long, and new trips are always popular ones. Despite having been bidding for it for months, it’s taken me a while to finally get it! I’m happy to hear any tips you have, especially as I have two 50-hour layovers there, so will have plenty of time to explore.

I’ll hopefully head to Miami to go and do some sightseeing there, as well as whatever other recommendations you guys have for me.

Another trip to Zurich, which I can’t complain about as it’s a nice easy flight.

After that it’s back to Fort Lauderdale for some more sightseeing, and hopefully eating some super tasty Cuban food!

I have 2 turnarounds next month, KWI and RUH, but both of them are short and should hopefully be nice and quick and easy.

To finish off the month, I have two flights to Phuket! I haven’t been to Phuket in a while, and I can’t remember if it’s rainy season in August, so I’m planning to top up my tan a bit if it’s sunny. If possible I’m going to try and swap one of these for a flight to HKG to visit my friends Kirsty and Dan, and their new baby Theo.

So there we go, a new destination for me to visit (twice!) and some old favourites! 🙂
