As you have probably noticed, I didn’t post anything in the last month, I did not even share my February flights. Actually there is no particular reason – I was simply not in the mood to write. Sometimes I feel there is not too much new I could bring into blogging. Flights after flights, trips after trips, this is what my whole life is about, this is the “normal” to me. Sometimes the destinations are the same or I don’t take as many photos which could make a good and interesting blog post. That’s why I don’t promise anything for the future – I will only write whenever I feel like and whenever I have something exciting or beautiful to write about.

I wanted to wait with posting my next roster, because I have been expecting some changes. I intended to (still do) swap some flight but I haven’t been able to do so, that’s why I post he original one and let’s see, it might gonna change. I am in Hamburg at the moment and I am gonna land around 02:30 am back in Dubai which means I celebrate new year at 36.000 feet in the sky :). The team is very amazing so I don’t mind. We were supposed to land like half an hour after midnight but there are some serious delays from Dubai which means our flight got also delayed with 2 hours. This is a very foggy season in Dubai, this is the reason behind.

I still owe you with my current monthly schedule. It was not so urgent for me to make this post as there is nothing you could have missed. I landed from Birmingham on the second of December (the departure was 30th so it still belongs to November) and after that flight I had three days off which I mostly spend with studying. Why and what studying?

It’s been three weeks now, I know. I wrote the post about the miserable reserve month and on the same night I’ve got a gift from the rostering team – a Hanoi, Vietnam flight with amazing 30 hours long layover. All people are bidding to get this flight and I was pulled out from standby. It is a mini multi sector with a stop over in Myanmar which makes this whole flight very long and tiring. I spent an amazing layover with visiting Halong Bay. I am gonna make a post in the close future.

Hello again 🙂
We got the next month roster quite early (during the weekend which is rare) and I prepared for the worst. After top bid month, crew usually get “reserve” month if we don’t have leave or any other personal activity related to our job (like US visa interview or upgrade training). I was hoping that I would be different but I had no luck :'(.

It’s been September for a while so it is time to release my monthly roster to you.
I was very optimistic about this schedule, because I had my top bid month which means I had the biggest chance to get the flights I want. I had two bids for Rio – Brazil, one bid for Japan and the others for Venice and Zimbabwe.
Top bid or not, I was very disappointed when I saw my roster as I got very average flights. I completely wasted my two biggest chances for Rio and the third one for Japan because didn’t get any of these routes. Complete waste. I think I am gonna give a break for Rio and stop trying for a while.

It’s been a while since I posted anything, but my month became super busy with many flights and minimum rest between. It’s been a little bit tough, I really need longer rest now, but on the other hand I don’t mind that much, because I’ve been in amazing places and my salary is gonna be better than ever :).
I only had a slight change in this July roster – instead of Bahrain, I got Doha, which is a “never mind” situation. I did all the other flights without being removed, and I fly to Venice tomorrow morning, that’s the last flight of this tiring, busy month.
