25 years with SAS

No, not me:) Except for maternity leave and a few years break to study, I have been working for SAS for almost 13 years, but on my last flight, we were celebrating Kyoko, and her 25th anniversary as a cabin crew. Kyoko is one of the Japanese cabin crew, and she is an amazing colleague and employee.

On her anniversary flight, she received a SAS diamond pin from her manager, and she was honored with a speech. On board the flight, we celebrated her with cake and Ringi, – Norway’s finest apple juice. I hope I will also get to celebrate 25 years with SAS someday. 13 years down, only 12 more years to go:)

Cabin crew blog, Washington

Fall is here and I have been on a long haul flight to Washington. The last time I was in Washington was four years ago, and that was when I found out I was having Marta, my youngest daughter. Even though I have been to Washington many times, I have mostly spent the layovers by the pool, relaxing and reading. Though I have decided that my layovers from now on will be all about exploring and writing so I put on my sandals and went for a walk down Connecticut Avenue. I ended up in front of the White House and what an amazing place it is. Just think about how many presidents that have been living there.

At the airline I work for, “steward” is not a male air host, but the title of the person in charge of the galley. He or she usually has a background in hospitality and receives further education in food and beverages before obtaining the “steward” title.

Chicago beach, Lake Michigan

I am back from Chicago and my first long-haul flight for almost 4 years. I started my layover with a visit to Le Pain Quotidien, where I got their oatmeal to go. Then I went down to the beach at Lake Michigan and found a sunny spot to sit down and have my oatmeal breakfast. Oatmeal tastes better with a view like this, don’t you think?

Waikiki Beach, Hawaii

I’m back in Sweden after a wonderful vacation in Hawaii. We stayed at Aston Hotel which is located on a quiet stretch of Waikiki Beach. We had booked a room with partial sea view but got an upgrade to full seaview, so we had the most amazing view of the beach and the palm trees. You pay $39 in service fee per day, but the fee includes sunbed, beach towels and sun lotion as well as the opportunity to borrow a GoPro camera free of charge.

A bumpy ride - Cabin Crew Blog

After 3.5 years on the ground, keeping busy with a full-time job as a mother of three, it takes a while before the body gets used to working up in the air again. I had a rough start and did not take proper notice of the warning signs. Early check-ins, long flights and short layovers at airport hotels. Constant sleep deprivation and then back home, where three kids and a husband struggled with adjusting to the fact that the person who usually took care of everything from cleaning and laundry to grocery shopping, suddenly wasn’t there all the time.
