Might Roster & An Replace

Properly hiya there – and welcome again to my weblog! It’s definitely been some time since I’ve up to date something on right here, and this will likely be my first publish of 2021, oops! I by no means meant to go so quiet, however as you’ll be able to think about, I’ve not been flying very a lot. Slowly issues are beginning to decide up and I’m seeing increasingly flights on my roster, however since we’re nonetheless not allowed to depart the resort on our layovers, I don’t have an entire lot to replace you on!

Flights are step by step getting again to regular, though we nonetheless should put on our full PPE (masks, gloves, robe and visor) and naturally passengers nonetheless should put on a masks. Extra locations are opening up although which is a superb signal, and I’m hopefully that ultimately issues will get again to regular. Let me inform you, I’ll by no means spend one other layover in my resort room once more!

Consider it or not, this month I’ve an *nearly* regular roster – fairly a number of flying hours, which makes for a pleasant change. Particularly since we receives a commission relying on how a lot we fly; it’s been over a yr since a traditional wage.

So if all the things goes to plan and no flights get eliminated (fingers crossed!) in Might I’ll be heading to:

  • JFK – New York, USA
  • AMM – Amman, Jordan (turnaround)
  • HAM – Hamburg, Germany
  • BP – Enterprise Promotion Occasion
  • DMM – Dammam, Saudi Arabia (turnaround)
  • LUN-HRE – Lusaka, Zambia – Harare, Zimbabwe
  • IKA – Tehran, Iran

I used to be really fairly excited after I acquired my roster, as while I’ve been flying a good quantity the previous few months, that is the busiest roster I’ve seen because the pandemic!

Beginning off with a visit to New York, one in every of my favourites. We’ve modified resort areas so I’ll be admiring the Brooklyn Bridge on the drive over, and ordering one thing scrumptious to eat to my room.

Subsequent up is a turnaround to Amman, which is round 3 hours every means. It is a good afternoon departure which implies I don’t have to stand up too early, beautiful!

Then I’ve a cargo flight to Hamburg. I’ve carried out a few cargo journeys – they’re nice enjoyable because it’s one thing very completely different to what we normally do. All the financial system seats are faraway from the cabin and it’s crammed with bins of cargo as an alternative, so it’s not a full freighter plane but it surely’s nonetheless completely different to a traditional flight. I’ve a layover there though as soon as once more I received’t be capable to do a lot.

After that’s one thing I haven’t seen for some time – a enterprise promotion occasion! My final occasion was the Dubai Obligation Free Tennis in February 2021, and I ought to discover out the main points for this one a number of days earlier than.

Following on from that I’ve one other turnaround to Dammam, a fast one at round 1 hour flight time every means. Straight after that could be a vacation spot I’ve by no means really flown to earlier than – Lusaka & Harare! We fly to Lusaka however keep on floor on the plane, after which it’s onwards to Harare for the layover. I’m hoping that since we are able to’t go away the resort that I’ll at the least be capable to use the pool and get some sunshine, let’s see!

Final up is one other turnaround, this time to Tehran in Iran. While in a traditional month I wouldn’t be significantly excited in regards to the variety of turnarounds on my roster, nowadays I’m glad to get as many flying hours as I can.

Journey definitely isn’t anyplace near being again to pre-pandemic occasions, and realistically I don’t suppose anybody is aware of when it is going to be. I do know I’m fortunate to nonetheless have my job, as so a lot of my associates and colleagues sadly had been made redundant this previous yr, and I’m grateful for that day by day. For now, I’m attempting to get out and revel in Dubai as a lot as I can – restrictions have eased right here and while we nonetheless should put on a masks always (together with whereas open air) most issues similar to eating places, retailers and gymnasiums have been open for some time.
