Being a freeloader as I am, when I got a chance to fly to Doha for a job interview there, although I wasn’t really keen to get back to my job as a flight attendant, I decided to pack my back and fly as although I had been to Doha for a transit once, I didn’t have time to explore the city as I couldn’t get out of the airport.
So when the national airline (go figure!) sent me the invitation for an experienced cabin crew interview, I didn’t even think twice. I thought that I could at least get around the city for a few hours even though I failed to get into the next step in the recruitment process.
And that’s what happened. I failed the arm reach test as always, and when some of the candidates looked a bit disappointed when they didn’t get the golden ticket to the next stage, I was one of the few who could leave the room with a smile.
Lucky for me, I met this Filipino girl called Stacy who’s currently flying with FlyNas and as we spoke, we decided to go out before we got back to bed as we both had our flight in midnight. A flight ticket back to Jakarta for me, and to Riyadh for her.
