Reserve Month

Guys, I have reserve this month.

Which means for the entire month of October, all I can see on my roster is “RESERVE” each day.

I literally find out where I am flying (or not flying) to the night before at 6pm.

Guess what!

First day of reserve

(tomorrow, October 1st)

DAY OFF.

Hopefully it picks up a little.

I am already a little bored of Dubai.

EK225

EK225.

I know this flight number really well.

DXB-SFO

I have tried to swap onto sooo many EK225’s, tried to bid for them, flown home to visit on them.

And I finally had an EK225 on my roster.

I operated my first SFO flight home!

It was so weird being cabin crew, and not a passenger, for the 15 hours. It went by a LOT faster.  I was so excited to see the family, i was practically bouncing in my jump seat as the plane was landing.

The only thing I didn’t think about was how short a 2 day layover would feel when I am back home.

Usually a 50 hour layover seems like more then enough time at a destination — but I quickly realized how short it really is when you are at home. Especially in comparison to my 2 week vacation I had just taken less then a month before.

So it was a good thing I had family coming back with me to Dubs 😉

It would have been a messy goodbye at the airport.
