First of all my apologies for being somewhat MIA the past few weeks. I’ve been so busy studying for my exams (haha only joking, I’m the queen of procrastination and I started yesterday)….but really I’ve just been busy!
I just got back from a lovely little mini-holiday to Hong Kong – my friend Michelle was operating the flight on the way out and then as she left my friend Sally arrived! So we spent 2 days partying, shopping, eating and sleeping! 🙂
Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come in my next blog post!
I thought I’d just do a quick update with my January roster; we got it a few days early this month.
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:
- 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
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!)
- London Gatwick
- Frankfurt (I was originally rostered Beijing but somebody sent me a swap for this!)
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 🙂

Ive just got back from probably the best trip ever…. Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires! Obviously a post (or two) will be coming with lots of pictures, but first I thought I’d put up my October roster!
Exciting times as I’m now officially a “Grade 1”, working in the business class cabin. So here goes:
So my July roster has just come out….and let’s just say it isn’t the most exciting one I’ve ever had!
I’ll be heading to:
- Hyderabad (t/a)
- Newcastle (anybody fancy taking this one for me?!)
- New York (Yay! Killer flight I’ve heard, but I’m so ready to do some shopping!)
- Medina (t/a)
- Kuwait (t/a)
- Riyadh (t/a)
As you can see I’ve been given a fair few turnarounds! Not so much fun…but at least you get to come back to your own bed at the end of the day!
