November Roster & An Replace

Whats up from Dubai!

As you could have observed, it’s been fairly quiet over right here on The Dubai Diaries. I’m positive I don’t want to say why, however as you may think about the aviation trade has been impacted massively by the COVID-19 pandemic.

I’m very lucky to nonetheless have a job, not like lots of my mates and colleagues who’ve sadly been made redundant. Nevertheless, compared to my ordinary busy rosters, I’ve hardly been flying since March, though slowly issues are beginning to decide again up a bit of. That’s to not say extra redundancies gained’t occur; at this level it appears no one is aware of when the airline trade will get well. I can solely preserve my fingers crossed that I’m one of many fortunate ones who will get to maintain this job that I really like a lot.

I joined Emirates with the prospect of travelling the world and exploring unknown locations, and in the meanwhile that’s sadly not potential. We’ve been instructed to stay in our resort always on layovers, which often could be the very last thing I might do when arriving at a brand new vacation spot! Nonetheless, I’m glad to see any flight seem on my roster because it means some a lot wanted flying hours.

We receives a commission a primary wage which was reduce by 50% up till October, and flying hours which make up the remainder of the wage. With nearly no flights, this was fairly a drastic pay reduce. As extra flights return, slowly I’m seeing a rise of flying hours on my roster. Since we stopped all flights in March, I had 4 flights in whole between April – August. (Usually I might common 8-10 flights monthly!).

The corporate was providing unpaid depart for as much as 4 months at a time, so I selected to take 1 month unpaid depart in September and journey dwelling to stick with dad and mom. Mixed with 10 days regular annual depart firstly of October, I used to be additionally capable of go to my sister in Valencia. Our plan had been to go to Colombia, however I suppose we’ll simply have to attend a bit of bit longer for that! It was pretty to have the ability to spend a lot time with my household, as underneath regular circumstances I might by no means be capable to take 6 weeks off at a time, so for that I’m very grateful.

After my depart, I had 3 flights in October – Zurich, Frankfurt and Heathrow. As for my November roster, it’s as follows:

  • IAH – Houston, USA
  • SYD – Sydney, Australia
  • ORD – Chicago, USA

As issues stand, these flights are nonetheless on my roster, and I simply obtained again from Houston a few days in the past. Issues change so quickly in the meanwhile – I might have one roster firstly of the month and one thing fully completely different by the tip. Fingers crossed nothing modifications this month as I’m tremendous glad to have so many flying hours.

I’ll do my finest to maintain updating right here, nevertheless my regular layovers are not any extra, and I’m positive no one is especially serious about figuring out which Netflix collection I spend my layovers watching and what I order from room service! If there’s something you’d like me to put in writing about on right here, remember to depart a remark beneath. Thanks for sticking with me!
