An Emirates Cabin Crew member who was made redundant recorded a fitting tribute to her time with the Dubai-based airline.
Kels, aka @lipstickandluggage worked with Emirates for almost five years, she travelled to 73 countries and she was made redundant during the COVID-19 pandemic when a wave of job loss hit industries worldwide, and the airline industry, in particular, taking the hardest hit.
Kels says that despite leaving the group, along with hundred others, they will still be a family adding that she’s ‘incredibly thankful’ to Emirates for the memories, experiences and support, including launching the first-class suites and the opportunity to host a live broadcast in front of 2million viewers at the 2017 Dubai Airshow.
Kels is looking forward, not back: This is her experience

♥️✈️ 🌍 4 years 10 months • 73 countries • 100+ destinations • 4,036 flying hours • and my @Emirates journey has come to an end. ☺️ About a month ago, along with hundreds of my colleagues, I was made redundant. 👩🏻✈️ We walked into the same training college where our journeys began, to be handed a “golden” envelope ✉️ that informed us we would no longer be flying. We don’t always understand why things happen the way that they do, but I’m incredibly thankful to @Emirates for the places I’ve been, the people I’ve met and the memories I’ve made! 💕 I’m also incredibly thankful for you guys, who have supported me along the way. 🥰 This adventure has challenged me in more ways than I could have ever imagined. I got to host a live broadcast in front of 2 million viewers at the 2017 Dubai Airshow, launch our game-changing first class suites, develop content for EK's digital platforms and represent EK in the media globally on our Business Promotions team! I even got to be a part of a Guinness World Record on #EK2019! 🙌 These times have been tough on the aviation industry as a whole, but it’s up to us to maintain our passion and positivity despite the negative circumstances. I will always love flying, and am hopeful that one day I will return to the skies again. Every ending leads to new beginnings, and I’m excited to see what’s next! 🙏 That being said, if anyone is looking for a VIP flight attendant or social media/PR manager, please slide into my dms! 😂 As always, thank you for the love and support. -Kels 💋 The amazing team that helped me make this video possible: 🎥 @_thecloudatlas_ ⌨️ @yanyan92_ 📃 @jessicagracewhalen @fiona.okelly 🥰 Inspired by @flywithjoseph 🎶 @siamusic Broken Glass
Yes, friends, Kels is now looking for work!
Using the video as an opportunity to let people know she’s available for duty, Kels added that if anyone needs a VIP flight attendant or social media/PR executive, she’s your gal and her DMs are open!
