I saw this 40-question cabin crew post going around on some blogs I followed years ago, when I was still reading up about how to pass the interview! Now I’d love to think my blog helps out anyone who’s looking for some tips on the recruitment 🙂

Good news for anyone who’s looking to join the company – recruitment will be starting again soon! We don’t have any more specific information or dates, but keep an eye out online. In the meantime, enjoy a few questions and answers from me.

1.Which airline is lucky enough to employ you? 

Emirates

2.What city(ies) are you based in? 

Dubai, UAE – the only base we have.

Even though Christmas is over now, I thought I’d show you a few pictures from my trip to New York. I bid for the flight in December specifically to see the beautiful Christmas lights, and although I only got rostered a 24 hour layover, I made sure to make the most of it!

The flight over takes around 14 hours, and we touched down after this beautiful sunrise, early in the morning.

As usual, there was plenty of traffic in New York, but since our hotel is right by Times Square, nobody minds the long drive from JFK airport.

Once we got to our rooms, I freshened up and got ready for the cold!

Well, it’s come around again just as quick as always…roster day! The very first roster of 2018 and I have to admit it’s not off to a great start as I only got one of my bids, the lowest one!

I just have to hope and pray that somehow I can manage to swap, as I’m supposed to be going to my cousin’s wedding and they’ve given me a 6-day trip which is practically impossible to swap, due to all of the legalities. Please keep all of your fingers and toes crossed for me!!

So without further ado, I’ll be heading to:

  • KBL – Kabul, Afghanistan (turnaround)
  • BNE – AKL – Brisbane, Australia & Auckland, New Zealand
  • MLE – Male, Maldives (turnaround)
  • BOS – Boston, USA
  • Leave
  • LHR – London Heathrow, UK

I have 2 turnarounds, Kabul and Male which are two of the longest ones we have, so that shall be interesting….!

Then this dreaded Brisbane Auckland, which I’m just hoping that by some miracle I can get rid of. I’m not a fan of multi-sectors anyway, and I’ve only just been to Melbourne and Auckland.

It’s been a while since I’ve been to Boston, and although it’s only a 30 hour layover (and a 14 hour flight!) I’m happy to be flying back there as hopefully it should be lovely and snowy.

Then I have 5 days leave – originally my sister and I were planning to go to Cuba but since I didn’t get any extra days off with my leave I think it will be a bit of a long way to travel for a very short time. So perhaps I can jet off somewhere cold and snowy for some skiing, otherwise I’m happy to hear any of your suggestions!

Lastly I have Heathrow, which was my lowest priority bid, so that mum and I can hopefully go and see a musical! 🙂

I can’t believe we’re already on to the last roster of 2017! Where has this year gone?!

Although I actually only got one flight that I bid for in December, I’m not too disappointed with my roster. I managed to get on the swap page and get a London instead of Perth to do my Christmas shopping which is perfect!

I’m finishing up November with my trip to Taipei, and then I’ll be heading to:

  • PER – Perth, Australia – swapped for: LGW – London Gatwick, UK
  • SEP – Safety and Emergency Procedures, our yearly exams!
  • JFK – New York, USA
  • AMM – Amman, Jordan (turnaround)
  • HKG – Hong Kong
  • Leave
  • AMS – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Fortunately I’ll be back to working in first class next month, I have to say I’ve really missed it – business class just isn’t the same! 😀

As I mentioned above I’ve swapped the Perth for a London, so I’ll try and get some Christmas shopping done there, as well as a trip to the supermarket for all of my essentials.

After that I’ve got my yearly exams, which are always great fun…not! 😉

Then it’s off to New York, which is the only flight I got that I bid for, so I’m looking forward to seeing all of the Christmas lights and perhaps even going ice skating in Central Park.

Next up is a quick turnaround to Amman and back, before a flight to Hong Kong, which I didn’t actually bid for but do love. I’ll be getting my fix of dumplings from Din Tai Fung!

I’m lucky enough to have leave for Christmas the second year in a row, and we’ll be heading to Mauritius for some sunshine this year – let’s hope the flights aren’t too full!

My last flight of the year is to Amsterdam – I haven’t been there for quite a while so if anybody has any good wintery suggestions I’ll be more than happy to hear them.

It’s time for another roster post and next month I’ll be working in business class again! It’s been a year since I upgraded to first class, but due to rostering requirements a number of us will we working in business class, as well as a number of business class crew who will be back in economy.

So of course I had to embrace the opportunity and bid for flights that I wouldn’t normally be able to fly on (due to a lack of first class) and I’m happy to say I got a few of my bids!

Next month I’ll be heading off to:

  • KHI – Karachi, Pakistan (turnaround)
  • JED – Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (turnaround)
  • HAN – Hanoi, Vietnam
  • JED – Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (turnaround)
  • HAN – Hanoi, Vietnam
  • SGN – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
  • SGN – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
  • TPE – Taipei, Taiwan

As you can see I’ll be spending most of the month in Vietnam! No complaints there as it was my highest bid, and I won’t be able to get the flights once I’m back to working in first class again.

Unfortunately rostering have thrown in a few turnarounds as well, but that always seems to be the case when you get what you bid for!

Lastly I’ll be flying to Taipei, which I’ve visited once before – you can read about that trip here.

Although I’m not particularly excited to be working in business class I’m really happy I’ll be seeing some new places next month! 🙂
