My name is Jeannine, and I’m your Instagramer of the month for February.
I’m looking forward to giving you a look behind the scenes of where I work, to inspire you – and to perhaps give a bit of a boost to your desire to travel!
I’ve been living my dream above the clouds for almost three years now, and I’m constantly looking for new challenges. I recently completed my training for First Class, and am now able to provide an even more individual service to help make our guests feel as if they are in heaven while onboard one of our flights.
However, before I started flying, I studied the more earthbound subjects of music, art and media, spent a year in Barcelona, swam with whale sharks in Mexico, climbed the pyramids of Guatemala, and meditated in Indian temples. And even now, when I’m not actually flying, I’m usually to be found somewhere far away, either ice fishing in South Korea or relaxing in Tobago.
That’s why I love immersing myself in foreign cultures on my night stops away from work, as it helps me to keep expanding my own horizons. Often I go straight to the nearest museum, let myself be swept along by the crowd, borrow a horse or bicycle, and inhale the flair of a different world. Believe it or not, some places are not only just ideal for seeing – you can really feel them, and they leave a feeling that follows you all the way back to Switzerland.
However, the best things about this job are not the destinations and culinary highlights that you constantly experience, but the new colleagues with whom one forms a team – often resulting in friendships that last a lifetime, because there’s no denying that we cabin crew are all made of the same stuff: we’re curious, empathic, cosmopolitan, adventurous, customer-oriented, flexible – and the list can go on endlessly.
I love to share the really good times, of which there are so many in my job, straight away with friends living their daily lives at home – and this month I can share them with you as well!
A very special highlight awaits us this February: SWISS’s factory-new first Boeing 777-300ER. The preparations for the arrival of the Boeing 777-300ER have been well underway at Zurich for some time now, which of course also boosts anticipation. The first cabin crew members started their training for the Boeing at the end of last year, and our pilots have already been familiarising themselves with the Boeing 777-300ER live with other airlines. We’re all very excited about this event, and we look forward to offering you an even more comfortable travel experience in the future.
But enough words – now I’d like to let the pictures speak.
With this in mind: Please fasten your seatbelt!
See you on-board!
