Tell us more about yourself.
I would describe myself as reserved, but once you get to know me, I’m very friendly and interesting. I love cooking, reading, and spending time with family.
What is your favourite part of your job?
I love the flexibility of my job, the opportunity to meet new people every day, and the fact that I don’t work with the same people on a daily basis either. Last but not least, I appreciate the privilege of getting paid to travel.
What do you find most challenging about your job?
Being on standby because you never know when you will get called out.
What do you like about working for SA Express?
My colleagues are the best part of working for SA Express. They make the long flights seem short because they create a pleasant working environment.
What would people find surprising about your job?
That we don’t do international flights outside of Africa – SA Express is a regional airline.
Have you ever had any funny incidents or encounters on board?
One incident comes to mind – when a passenger handed me a dirty nappy to throw away for her while I was busy with the food service!
