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!

    How cute! Once on a flight to Kuala Lumpur (not emirates), I was seated beside a lady who was a Lecturer of Medicine (if I remember correctly). She was preparing a presentation for her next class. We had a nice little chit chat during the flight and I learnt that her son was also a Software Engineer like me. On another flight, I met a student who was really funny and he kept me pretty entertained during the 6 hour journey. It’s great to fly with interesting people! I will be flying to Seychelles in November via Emirates and I so hope to bump into you, Kelsey!! <3

    Btw, I would LOVE if you make a video of your Emirates makeup routine! You're so gorgeous!

      Hey Tasmiyah,

      That’s so cool! Thanks for sharing that with me. I hope you have a pleasant trip to Seychelles! It’s a beautiful place- one of the first layovers I ever had if I recall correctly. There are a lot of beautiful places there to snap photos!

      I have thought about sharing my makeup routine but I’m not a makeup artist and feel as though some girls do their makeup way better than I do! I will think about it though! πŸ™‚ Thanks again! <3

      Much love,
