Passenger stories: DXB to JNB

You just never know who you are going to meet on board! On a recent flight to Johannesburg, South Africa I met a customer who I’m going to refer to as Mae.

Mae was travelling a great distance alone (from Dublin to Dubai to Johannesburg) and was returning home from a visit with her family. It was her first time flying with us, so my colleagues and I did our best to make the trip special for her!

It turns out that Mae is an elementary school teacher, who teaches grades 3/4. She told us that she is looking forward to sharing her travel stories with her students and that she couldn’t wait to show them her Emirates souvenir- a photo that we took of her on board. I told her that I couldn’t wait to show you guys mine too!

Do you have any cool passenger stories from on board? If so, please share them with me in the comments below!

Business Promotions: Emirates Lions Rugby match in Johannesburg, South Africa

Being Cabin Crew with Emirates has given me a lot of opportunities. I’ve been able to travel the world, make news friends and engage with people of different cultures from across the globe. I’ve built an online community with whom I get to share this experience with, and I’ve accomplished a lot within the company too; operating an inaugural flight, participating in Emirates Jennifer Aniston social media campaign and joining the Emirates Business Promotions team!

This week, I had the pleasure of adding another amazing experience to this list. I got to represent Emirates at the Emirates Lions Rugby match in Johannesburg, South Africa, alongside my friend Andrea. We stood on the field for the “run on” at the beginning of the game, and I had the privilege of being a part of the halftime show where three lucky contenders had the chance to win a trip to Dubai. We also took a picture with the Man of the Match, Jaco Kriel!

The experience was incredible and I hope to be back soon! 🙂

Time for take off: Operating the Emirates Airbus A380 Inaugural from JNB to DXB

Passengers were invited to take photos with and enjoy some of the cake given to Cabin Crew on the flight.

On February 1, 2017, I had the pleasure of operating the Emirates Airbus A380 Inaugural from Johannesburg, South Africa to Dubai, United Arab Emirates!

An inaugural flight is defined as the first flight of an aircraft that is being introduced by a carrier to a route for the first time. On occasions such as this, Cabin Crew are nominated to operate the flight by management, then chosen to participate by a selection committee. It’s an honour to have been able to participate in this experience!

To celebrate this momentous occasion, Dnata Newrest surprised us with a giant cake that we opted to share with our passengers. The disembarking Cabin Crew (that came into JNB on the Emirates Airbus A380-800) also left us several South African flags that our customers were able to take pictures with.
