It seems like I only just pressed publish on my May roster, but here we are again with another roster post!

I’m currently on reserve, as mentioned in my May roster post, and so far I’ve been given a flight to Milan and a flight to London, as well as a quick overnight turnaround to Jeddah and back. I’ve still got quite a way to go so stay tuned on here and my Instagram, where I post more day-to-day updates, to see where else I end up this month!

I’ll be finishing my reserve around the 11th of June, and after that I’ll be heading to:

  • NBO – Nairobi, Kenya (turnaround)
  • LNE – HRE – Lusaka, Zambia & Harare, Zimbabwe
  • LHR – London Heathrow, UK
  • BCN – Barcelona, Spain


After my turnaround to Nairobi I have a string of 5 days off, so hope to head on a mini getaway somewhere warm with my girlfriends!

The LNE – HRE trip is one I haven’t done before. We fly to Lusaka, have a quick stop on ground, then on to Harare where we have a 24 hour layover. So if you have any tips or suggestions for what to do and see in 24 hours in Harare, please let me know.

Then it’s on to London, and after that one of my favourites, Barcelona, where I hope to top up my tan on the beach! In the meantime, let’s hope for some nice flights on my reserve 🙂

This post is going to be short and sweet as I don’t have many flights in May….so far! I’ll be starting off the month with a flight to Milan (which is technically still in my April roster) and then after a couple of days off I’ll be heading to LAX – Los Angeles.

After that…..reserve! So far I’ve only had reserve once in the 4,5 years I’ve been flying, and considering we’re supposed to have it every 7 months, I’ve been quite lucky. So please keep your fingers crossed for me that I’ll get some nice flights and not have to work in economy on my reserve month 😉

It’s been a while since I’ve been to LA so any tips or suggestions will be much appreciated! 🙂

Hope you all have a great week, and as always, thanks for reading!

It’s that time of the month again…roster day! It seems to roll around quicker every month, and we’re already over halfway through March, 2017 is definitely flying by!

Next month I’ll be starting with 10 days leave, and I won’t mention yet where we will be heading, but I will say there are some beaches involved! 🙂

After that my flights will be to:

  • BOM – Bombay, India (turnaround)
  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
  • MEL – Melbourne, Australia
  • JED – Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (turnaround)
  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
  • MXP – Milan, Italy

I hope you guys are still enjoying my month roster posts, and if there is anything else you’d like to see here on The Dubai Diaries, please feel free to let me know in the comments below!

As I mentioned in my previous roster post, we all now get our rosters quite a bit earlier, which is lovely as it means you can plan the month ahead a bit more.

Although my bidding seniority is quite low in March, I’m pretty happy and quite pleasantly surprised with my roster for next month!

I’ll be heading off to:

  • SEA – Seattle, USA
  • HAM – Hamburg, Germany
  • HKG – Hong Kong
  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
  • DOH – Doha, Qatar (Turnaround)
  • CKY – DKR – Conakry, Guinea – Dakar, Senegal

I’m super excited to be heading back to Seattle, as I’ve only been once before and I loved the city. You can read about my previous trip here, and see what I got up to. Any tips for anything different to see or do this time would be much appreciated!

I’ve also been to Hamburg a few times before, and my old school friend Georg lives there, so if he’s not working hopefully we’ll be able to catch up.

As for Hong Kong and Zurich, if you read my blog regularly you’ll know that those are two destinations that I love and have flown to fairly often.

I’m also happy that I’ve finally got a new destination – it’ll be my first time visiting both Conakry and Dakar. We actually get 48 hours in Conakry so I should have plenty of time to explore, and then 24 hours in Dakar.

I also have another string of 5 days off, but so far I have no plans and might just take some time to relax in Dubai!

Our rosters came quite a few days early this month, which was a pleasantly unexpected surprise!

After having been very lucky and getting quite a few flights that I asked for this month, I should have been on reserve, or “bottom bid” for February. However I was lucky enough to receive a fairly normal roster, with (almost) no nasty surprises! I asked for 5 days off at the end of the month, to try and keep up with my 2017 resolutions of travelling more, and I actually got them, which I’m quite surprised about.

I’ll also be flying off to:

  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
  • DOH – Doha, Qatar (turnaround)
  • DUB – Dublin, Ireland
  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
  • COK -Cochin, India (turnaround)
  • IAH – Houston, USA

As you can see, two trips to Zurich, which always pop up on my roster. No complaints there as it’s a shortish flight, usually not too busy, and a great allowance.

It’s been a couple of years since I went to Dublin so I’m looking forward to that one, any tips or recommendations are much appreciated!

Houston is now back on the 777, and that’ll be my first long-haul flight since working in first class.

Only two turnarounds, a quick Doha (around 40-45 minutes each way!) and a Cochin, not a particularly desired flight as it leaves around 2am and gets back around 12pm the next day. Horrible timings and a long flight, but let’s hope for the best!

As for my 5 days off at the end of the month, a little getaway is in the works with my friend Kirsty, fingers crossed everything works out…stay tuned to see where we end up!
