July Roster

Halfway through the year already! Sorry it’s been a bit quiet over here on The Dubai Diaries…I’ve been busy studying for my interview and assessment for cabin supervisor and am very excited to share that I was successful! 

Depending on space and availability I will be rostered my training for cabin supervisor soon, which means I’ll be moving back out of first class to be in charge of the economy or business class cabin. It will certainly be a change, but I’m so excited for a new challenge!

As for next month, I’ll be jetting off to:

  • KWI – Kuwait (turnaround)
  • RUH – Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (turnaround)
  • HAM – Hamburg, Germany
  • JFK – New York, USA
  • FRA – Frankfurt, Germany
  • MLE – CMB – Male, Maldives – Colombo, Sri Lanka
  • HYD – Hyderabad, India (turnaround)
  • BP – Business Promotion
  • BKK – PNH – Bangkok, Thailand – Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Starting off with a couple of quick turnarounds to Kuwait and Riyadh. Although nobody particularly loves a turnaround, both of these are during the day, so no working through the night and they’re both pretty quick.

Up next is Hamburg, a destination I haven’t visited in a while. I have an old school friend who lives there, so hopefully he’s free to catch up!

After that is another JFK. I’m always happy to go back to New York, and even though I was only there last month I’m sure I will be able to find something new to do! I’m thinking of going to see a musical, so if anyone has any suggestions, just let me know in the comments below.

Following on from New York is a flight to Frankfurt. I’ve actually just got back from there – I was supposed to be going to Hong Kong but sadly there was an aircraft change so I was removed from that flight and given Frankfurt instead.

Up next, a trip to Colombo, with a short stopover in the Maldives. Sadly we don’t get to stay there, but I’m quite looking forward to going to Colombo, as it’s been years since I’ve visited Sri Lanka!

After that is another turnaround (my third of the month!) to Hyderabad and back. And then I have an exciting business promotions trip – to the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Hockenheim, Germany! I’ll be there for a few days representing the company which should be a great trip.

For my final trip of the month, I have a new destination. Very exciting, as I always love ticking off new places, and this is somewhere that we haven’t been flying to for very long – Phnom Penh, Cambodia! The flight has a quick stop in Bangkok, and then a 24 hour layover in Cambodia. I’m very open to all of your suggestions and must-visits for my short time there!

So that’s it for my upcoming month. I will get back to writing on here more regularly, as I still have quite a few trips to post about, and I’m sure I will have some more to come this month!

    Congratulations on your promotion! What did the assessment involve and what does the role involve also? 🙂

      Thanks so much Lisa! The assessment had a few different stages; a written knowledge test, a group discussion, a scenario where I had to write a report, and a one on one interview discussing the report and also why I want to be CSV and situations I’ve had onboard. The job role means being in charge of either the economy or business class cabin (depending on the day!).
