My last flight of the year was to Paris…and for the first time ever, I flew with a friend! Taylor from VOLARE managed to swap her Bangkok and we were ready to wander the streets of Paris.

After a relatively early start and a busy full flight, we arrived! Luckily we were blessed with gorgeous weather, unlike 2 days earlier where it had been pouring with rain and I only made it as far as the shopping centre next to the hotel!

It’s that time of the month again….roster time!

December this year has a not-so-nice little surprise on the cards – my yearly SEP exams!

We have to pass these recurrent exams once a year (held over 2 days) to keep our flying licenses valid, and somehow this year I’ve been lucky enough to be rostered them on the 24th and 25th of December. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!! That’s the downside of working for a muslim airline, I guess!

Looks like I’ll be celebrating Christmas in training college; I’ll have to take in some mince pies to make things a bit more festive!

Other than that I have flights to:

  • Singapore
  • San Fransisco (I was originally rostered Mauritius and Bangkok, but swapped those for San Fran to get extra days off before my leave)
  • Leave (where I have 2 special guests coming to stay for a few days – mum & dad!)
  • SEP exams
  • Paris
  • Paris

I’m trying to swap at least one of the Paris’ (seeing as I’ve also just been there, and 3 flights to the same place in a month can get a bit repetitive!) so I’ll see if I manage to change that.

So I know we’re already almost a week in to November, but I realised I haven’t put my roster up here!

I’m now officially on my second month of working in business class and I almost feel like I know what I’m doing! 😉

So here goes:

  • New York (which I’ve just done a blog post about!)
  • Singapore
  • London Gatwick
  • Munich
  • Frankfurt (I was originally rostered Beijing but somebody sent me a swap for this!)
  • Paris

All of these flights are on the A380, and I’ve also got quite a few days off in a row which is lovely!

As always feel free to leave me any comments and suggestions for future blog posts 🙂
