The last two weeks of training college have been incredible. It’s so hard to believe that in just a few weeks, I’ll get to start flying!
My first roster -which is a term we use as another way of saying schedule- consists of the following destinations:
- Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
- Bangalore, Karnataka, India
- Karrachi, Pakistan
- Sydney, Australia
- Dammam, Saudi Arabia
- Doha, Qatar
- Changi, Singapore
I’m really looking forward to having layovers in Australia and Singapore. A layover in my terminology refers to the rest period cabin crew receive between flights.
My flights to Singapore and Australia are considered to be multi-sector. This means that they will be broken up into segments. For example, I’ll start my day in Dubai and fly to Singapore (DXB-SIN). When I reach Singapore, after my layover, I’ll fly to Melbourne (SIN-MEL). Following my layover in Melbourne, I’ll return to Singapore (MEL-SIN), and then I’ll head back to Dubai after another rest period (SIN-DXB).
The first two flights that I’ll be on are called soupy flights. To my understanding, “soupy” is a slang term for supervision. My duties on those flights will be to familiarize myself with the aircraft, and to watch how the cabin crew conduct their service.
I’m really looking forward to the weeks ahead, and I hope you’ll continue to follow me on my journey.
