At the end of last month I was rostered a flight to Copenhagen on Christmas Day, however I was desperate not to fly on Christmas so I sent out about 50 swaps, the majority of which I can’t even remember which destinations they were! So when one got accepted it was a complete surprise to see that I would have a 48 hour layover in Algiers!
I was looking forward to it; a new destination and a nice long layover.
It was an early start, but we watched the sunrise accompanied by plenty of planes taking off whilst waiting for our passengers!
The flight over to Algiers was a nice one. Just over 6 hours, and although it was a full cabin in business class we managed the service quickly and easily.
Since we had a whole full day the next day to explore, we decided just to go for some dinner in the hotel that evening.
I was greeted by a beautiful sunrise the next morning, although the temperature was a chilly 7 degrees!
