Welcome to A Week in the Life of Catriona Hurley. Catriona is a First Officer at British Airways! British Airways is a Modern Muse Partner and at BA Catriona is always on the go.

On a typical Monday you might find her braving -10 degrees in Montreal on a 24 hour layover to see how cold it felt (pretty cold!). She also manages to get to the gym, and catch up with friends who live there for a coffee before getting some rest to fly home overnight.
On Tuesday Catriona may be flying home from another country. This picture was taken on a flight through the night home from Montreal with the sun rising as they were still flying over the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, about 8am UK time. She is lucky enough to have the best office view in the world!
A typical Wednesday might find her spending some quality time with her daughter. This picture was taken whilst she enjoyed a lovely day off spending time with her little girl, they went swimming, then she had some time in soft play to burn off some energy. Her daughter still naps in the afternoon so Catriona loves to sit and catch up on the news with a coffee.
A typical Thursday might find her having another day off before a week of busy travelling. Today she is trying to catch up on housework, her cat Zazzles wasn’t much help with making the bed though! She is going to spend an afternoon in the playground with her daughter enjoying a cold British afternoon in the sun.
Catriona often volunteers at work for a Peer Support Programme, British Airways have training days 4 times a year at BA’s training headquarters. There are so many opportunities in aviation to get involved in other projects, not just flying.
Catriona is enjoying family brunch at home, it’s what the perfect relaxed Saturday mornings are made for, and pancakes are a household favourite. Catriona and her family are all going out to see some friends for the afternoon, followed by family movie night.
She is feeling a bit tired after a 12 hour flight to Narita Airport in Tokyo. A typical Sunday morning might find her landing an aircraft, a Boeing 787 on a very breezy day in another country. Now she is off to the Hotel for a well deserved rest!
