I know this flight number really well.
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.
