  1. HI! just wanted to say i enjoyed very much of reading your blog! I went to the final interview with EK almost 4 weeks ago, still waiting for the result, just wanted to ask that how long have u waited for your result after u attended the final interview? thank you!


    • Hey Kam
      My interview was the end of January and I got my call mid February. Its the hardest thing to do but just try and be patient πŸ™‚ it may take up to 6 weeks… if you haven’t heard from them after that time, send them a mail query. good luck, holding thumbs! let me know…

  2. I’m so happy I run into your blog πŸ˜› Hope we’ll be colleagues some day if you are not planning to go back home too soon πŸ˜€ (I’m still 20, I can’t apply for Emirates, but I will :D)

  3. ***ran, sorry :”>

  5. Dear Annemarie, know your time is limited and gonna make it short: first of all, I love your posts and the way you introduce us the readers in your world; second, I would like to become a Emirates cabin crew, now I am in my write cv and make photos phase, so please if you could tell me whether the photos you uploaded on their website, were they casual or you were dressed in a suit (black skirt& blazer, white shirt, white background-were you smiling or serious, wearing makeup or not). Please if you could let me know, I would like to maximize my chances. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Elle

    • hey Elle πŸ™‚
      so sorry for only replying now… hope you were succesful in your application?? well i took photos in business attire with make-up, hair tied back and a huge smile =D thanks for complimenting my blog, much appreciated!! xx

  6. Hi Annemarie,
    I really enjoyed reading your blog. You seem to be a lovely person, so I hope it is ok for me to ask a couple of questions.
    I have been confirmed with Emirates, flying out in less than a month now. However, I am still in doubts. I wonder, whether it is worth to leave all my life behind and start a new one from the scratch.
    How was your experience? Did you ever regret leaving everything behind to start a new life? Did you find Dubai welcoming? Also, how are the career opportunities? As far as I know, the best you can do is to become a manager of a plain (or something like that – I hope you understand what I mean). Do you find the job physically very tiring?
    Thanks. Migle

    • hey Migle, sorry for the late reply. Send me your email address and I’ll tell you a bit of what I know πŸ™‚ yes its a big decision to pack up everything and move to a new country, but I feel that Ive made the best decision of my life, and Im having the BEST time of my life! email me at anemari.vdw@gmail.com
