I’ve simply obtained my roster for August, and it nearly appears like a standard roster! I’m so glad to be getting extra flights once more, because it signifies that there’s an indication of pre-pandemic life again on the horizon. It’s nonetheless undoubtedly not utterly again to regular although, as we proceed to put on masks, robes and gloves onboard. I’m eagerly awaiting the day that I can put my pink lipstick again on, who would have thought!
Subsequent month I’ll be heading off to:
- CPT – Cape City, South Africa
- IST – Istanbul, Turkey (turnaround)
- DMM – Dammam, Saudi Arabia (turnaround)
- KBL – Kabul, Afghanistan (turnaround)
- TUN – Tunis, Tunisia
- GLA – Glasgow, Scotland
Cape City is considered one of my all time favorite locations on the planet, so I actually hope that I can truly take pleasure in it. In the intervening time flights to South Africa are fairly restricted – no one is allowed to enter UAE having been in South Africa prior to now 14 days, so we don’t have any passengers on the return sector. We’re additionally not presently flying to Cape City, and as of the second it’s displaying that we can’t depart the room on the layover there. Maintain your fingers crossed for me that it may need modified by the point I’m there, and that I’ll have the ability to exit.
Following on from the flight are three turnarounds, Istanbul, Dammam, and Kabul. Istanbul is a brilliant lengthy day, because it’s round 4 hours every means, and the flight is thru the night time. Dammam is a bit shorter, roughly 1,5 hours and Kabul is round 3 hours every means.
Subsequent up is a visit to Tunis – a brand new vacation spot for me! I really feel fairly unhappy that I almost definitely received’t get to really see a lot of the town, because it’s presently “pink” for us – that means we’ve got to remain within the resort room. Disgrace!
The final flight of the month is to Glasgow, once more one other layover which can almost definitely be spent within the resort room until the UK eases restrictions. Such a disgrace after having a few months of being allowed out and about to get shut again up in resorts once more, however such is life. After all I’m grateful to have a job that I like, and nonetheless be flying, however I’d actually love to have the ability to begin spending all of my layovers exploring once more. I’ll by no means be spending the entire layover in my room once more if I’ve a selection, that’s for certain!
