October Roster

My first roster as a cabin supervisor! Having now completed my training (just over 2 weeks) I’ll be starting out from next month working as a CSV. It’ll certainly be a different experience from first class but I’m very much looking forward to the change.

Luckily my month will be very nice to ease into, as I’m starting off with some annual leave. As for the rest, this is where I’ll be off to in October:

  • Annual Leave
  • HKG – Hong Kong
  • IKA – Tehran, Iran
  • ZRH – Zurich, Switzerland
  • MEL – Melbourne, Australia
  • STN – London Stansted, UK
  • STN – London Stansted, UK

For my leave, my sister and I are heading to the Dominican Republic! We’ll be spending a few days exploring Santo Domingo, and then a bit of time relaxing by the beach in Punta Cana. Anything we must see or do, please comment down below!

My first flight operating as CSV will be to Hong Kong! One of my favourite destinations, and somehow ironic that this was also my very first flight with Emirates way back almost 7 years ago when I started flying. Only this time around, I’ll be the one in charge! I’m looking forward to catching up with my friend Kirsty once I’m there, and seeing her two little ones.

Next up is a quick turnaround to Tehran and back. This will be another new challenge as I’ll most likely be working in economy, and the service will have to be done quite quickly due to the length of the flight.

Then I’ve got a lovely layover in Zurich, another great destination. I’m already looking forward to some cheese fondue!

Following on from that is my ULR (ultra long range) flight for the month – Melbourne, Australia. I actually bid for Sydney to try and see my grandparents, but got Melbourne instead! Nevertheless I’ll be keeping this flight as my cousin lives there and I can’t wait to have a good catch up with her.

Lastly I have two trips which I’m very much looking forward to – home! A lovely way to round off the month, two back-to-back flights to Stansted. I’m hoping by then I’ll somehow know what I’m doing as CSV and will be able to relax at home with Mum and Dad!

P.s. Follow me on InstagramFacebook & Twitter for more day-to-day updates of where I am in the world! 🙂

      Hi Jorge! Thanks so much for commenting! I loved the Dominican Republic, I just wish I had had more time there 🙂 Would have loved to visit Haiti as well but again I ran out of time. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to go back 🙂

    Will you be wearing the same uniform as a CSV?

      Yes, same uniform! Only difference is a new name badge with my full name rather than just my first name 🙂
