Former Emirates high-flier pursues her passion to land new role as a piano teacher
Argentinean Mercedes Basutto has followed her dream after losing her 12-year airline career during the pandemic
A long-serving member of Emirates cabin crew bounced back from the low of redundancy to hit a high note with a new musical career.
Mercedes Basutto was determined to land on her feet after losing her job in June last year because of the financial fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ms Basutto, 36, recently became a travel consultant in Dubai but as the holiday industry is still in recovery mode, she began teaching piano to supplement her income.
The former professional volleyball player said job security was never a concern before the Covid-19 outbreak.
