Finally, my reserve month is over! It felt like a much longer month than usual, and I was kept busy with lots of flights.
If you didn’t manage to keep up on Instagram, I went to Warsaw, Jeddah (x2), London Gatwick, Dallas, Johannesburg and Bombay. I also had 2 airport standbys where I didn’t get used. All in all plenty to keep me busy, although I have to say most of my layovers were spent relaxing, eating and going to the gym!
Next month I have some nice flights, and will be heading off to:
- MLE – Male, Maldives (turnaround)
- BKK – Bangkok, Thailand
- KRT – Khartoum, Sudan (turnaround)
- BP – Business Promotions Event
- LHR – London Heathrow, UK
- VIE – Vienna, Austria
- HKG x2 – Hong Kong
Both the Male and Khartoum turnarounds are quite long days (around 4 hours each way) so although sadly I don’t get to stay in the Maldives, it will be plenty of flying hours.
Funnily enough I’ve been bidding for Bangkok for months with no luck, and now when I didn’t bid for it, I got one! I’m already looking forward to some Pad Thai and a massage.
Then I have a BP event, which I’m still waiting to hear the details about.
Up next is a Heathrow, which I would love to swap for a Stansted to be able to go home, but I’m not holding out too much hope for that one!
Following on from Heathrow is Vienna! Again, a flight that I didn’t bid for but am always happy to see on my roster.
Last up are two flights to Hong Kong, one of my favourite destinations and one that I did bid for. My lovely friend and old flatmate Kirsty is due to give birth very soon, so I’ll be able to meet her baby which I’m very excited about!
I also have 4 days off towards the end of the month, and am trying to plan a little trip away somewhere not too far from Dubai. Any suggestions?!
