Everybody took home armloads of flowers from Kenya. (Except me - I took home armloads of mangoes and avocados.)
Kilimanjaro... Whatchoo are-o!
(Okay, I confess I failed to go on a safari in Kenya. I just went shopping, and then went shopping some more, and brought home a suitcase full of handicrafts (wooden masks, wooden hippos, those colorful African shirts). I did the same thing a few days later when I went to Bangkok - palaces? Temples? I don't know about those things, but there's some great shopping at Patpong Road and MBK. Color me daft, but it was good fun.)
(p.s. It's Don's fault that Letterbox and Kilimanjaro have become linked in my mind, so blame him if (like me) you're walking around singing "You never know what you'll find when you open up your letterbox tomorrow: Kilimanjaro!")
Hey Susan! It's me Justin. I'm not sure if you saw my comment on the "aircraft post" but it just asked if you know the requirements to be a check-in agent at DXB. I know that cabin crew don't really interact and talk to the agents but i was wondering if ever you have some spare time before the flight leaves/arrives in Dubai and you see a check-in agent, you could ask them the essential requirements to apply for the check-in agent position. It doesn't say anything on emiratesgroupcareers.com, only the duties of the job. I'd really appreciate it Susan! And if there's anything I could do, please let me know! Hahah! You can email me back. See ya!
Hey, Justin! If I happen to talk to a check-in agent, I'll ask about that. However, we really don't interact with the check-in staff because we don't go through the airport to enter the aircraft. (Flight crew and cabin crew go through a separate immigration/customs checkpoint which is not in Dubai airport.) I think the pursuer might interact with the check-in staff during boarding, but as a lowly economy class crew, I'm way in the back and quite busy at that time! But if I meet a check-in agent somehow (maybe outside of work), I'll try to find out for you. My guess is that it's similar to cabin crew - that is, customer service experience is more important than a college degree. I'm not sure about age requirements! Anyway, sorry I don't have more info for you. Later!
Hey Susan! Thank you so much, I'd really appreciate it if you ran into one and asked them if both of you aren't that busy. I heard that EK provides them accomodation as well but they share a room. Do you know anything about that?
