airlineEmma Ross left school at eighteen when to college and then worked at a local airport. After a year, she went to work for Easyjet and then she joined Emirate Airlines as a flight attendant. Five years later, she got her present job as a manager.

Here is what she told us about her job:

'My office is at Gatwick Airport, but I spend 60% of my time in the air. I teach flight attendants and help with any problems. I also go to lots of meetings.

My working hours are usually from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but sometimes I work from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. At work, the first thing I do is check plane times on my computer, and then I speak with some of the flight attendants.

Sometimes, I go on long flights to check how the flight attendants are doing. That's my favourite part of the job, but I like office work, too. Travelling can be hard work. When I get back from a long journey, all I can do is eat something and then go to bed! I earn a good salary, and I love working for Emirate Airlines. I plan to work there for as long as I can and continue to travel.'
