MANY PEOPLE dream of being paid to travel the world – but this is just everyday life for Emirates cabin crew worker Tessa Johnston.
The 26-year-old Canadian has lifted the lid on what it’s really like to work for the airline – including how they get free accommodation in Dubai.
On her @tessajohnstonn TikTok, which has 184,000 followers, she uploaded a video saying: “You want to travel the world?
“No experience needed, no Arabic needed, just English.”
Tessa, who joined the airline in 2019, said she doesn’t work full weeks, and explained: “You could work only 2 days in a week, you could work 4 days.
“But it’s not for example a Monday-Friday job.”

Tessa said the crew must be based in Dubai for Emirates and explained: “If you are hired, you can be hired from any country in the entire world, they will move you to Dubai.
“They will give you accommodation and they will pay for it, you’ll either have roommates or if you are married or have family in Dubai, they will give you accommodation allowance to get your own place.
“They do pay for your flight to come to Dubai.”
Staff must be 21 to apply, and have an arm reach of 212cm on tiptoes and minimum height of 160cm.

Tessa added: “There are actually four styles of Emirates shoes – high heel, mid heel, low heel and flats – and you get to pick two – one must have a heel, the second must have a low heel or no heel at all.
“When you are walking through the airport, you are boarding customers or customers are leaving the aircraft, you must have a heel on.”
During food and beverage service, crew must wear the lowest heel or flats for safety reasons.
She added of their famous pristine make-up: “There is no official red Emirates lipstick, we are free to wear whatever we want as long as it matches the red hat.
