IFM`s appeal for reinstatement failed

The IFM in the molest case has lost his appeal. However, if he feels that his dismissal was unfair he can approach MOM for help.

Latest update:
The whole incident was not about molest,I was told. It was about outraging the stewardess`s modesty. Removing the ball point from her kebaya without her permission and the alleged rubbing of his hand against her "breast"  was deemed to have committed an act of outraging her modesty.
I also understand that an appeal will made to the MOM (Ministry of Manpower) to hear the case.

IFM`s appeal for reinstatement

Today is the hearing of appeal of the IFM who was fired for alleged molestation of a stewardess. I heard there will be 3 top divisional heads sitting on the board of appeal. My gut feel is that the said IFM will be successful in his appeal because like I said before there was no strong and convincing evidence that he wilfully molested his female colleague.
The IFM may be punished for snatching a ball pen from the stewardess`s low neckline kebaya without permission. It was a case of mischief rather than molest.
My guess is he may face a demotion or  lose his bonus or won't get his annual pay increment which is better than getting a sack.
Let us  wait for the verdict which should be released by this evening.

Almost landed on the wrong runway?

I doubt that the pilots of SQ 422 mistook the smaller Juhu airport for Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport as claimed by the media. I think the pilots are well trained and experienced enough to differentiate between the two airports. The first attempt to land at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport was aborted due to poor visibility but nine minutes later approached the assigned runway 09 and landed without any incident.
"Singapore Captain" any comment from you?

Double standard ? I hope not

IFM "Mo" was demoted to the position of a leading steward (LS) in mid 2014 for upgrading an off duty stewardess. It was 3 1/2 years ago and he is yet to be
moved back to the next rank which is chief steward. It will be a slow long crawl back to his original position of IFM (if the company is merciful and just) or he may retire as an LS.
Talking to a crew a few days ago, I was told that a pilot got away with a forfeiture of his one month bonus instead of a double demotion as in the IFM`s case for upgrading his girlfriend on his flight. I hope it is fake news or else people may think that the company has 2 sets of rules, 1 for cabin crew and another for the pilots.
Some years ago, a pilot went to jail for hitting an old man in a road rage case and yet was not sacked by the company. Had it been a cabin crew would the story  be different?
I doubt the company will apply its rules unfairly to the staff regardless of their positions. What do you all think?

Among the newly promoted IFM is a .....

This is unprecedented and is history in the  making. For the first time ever, a Japanese cabin crew has been promoted to the rank of Inflight Manager (IFM).
(All IFM are either Singaporeans or Malaysians)
I won`t name her due to privacy concern but she has been with the airline for
perhaps around 25 to 27 years. Her last position was Chief Stewardess.The difference in retirement ages could be about 10 years. Salary wise IFM's take home may be $1,000 more than the chiefs per month.
I totally support the cabin crew management for promoting her as she is the best among the foreign crew.
Congrats SJ and all others who are promoted!

Stewardess detained by security at Changi Airport

An air stewardess was detained by the security personnel during a routine check at the departure hall in Singapore.
The reason for the detention was that the stewardess was found with an empty cartridge in her bag. In Singapore it is unlawful to be in possession of firearms, cartridges empty or otherwise.
I was told the stewardess had gone for a shooting lesson in Houston during her nightstop and had brought home the empty cartridge as a souvenir. She was ignorant about the law regarding firearms and cartridges.

I will make it short as the internet connection is slow.
Recently, there were 2 complaints from paxs regarding
cabin crew. First, it was about the stewardesses uniform.
A lady pax complained that the neckline was low thus exposing
the girls` boobs. She even went to the extent to say that the girls
were more like porno actresses than cabin crew.
Second complaint was about the bad service rendered and
demanded for an upgrade to business class for her future flights.
As for the first complaint, I suggest that the pax write to the
designer of the uniform, Pierre Balmain. (too late la cos he died
oredi in 1991). I would not know how would Balmain address the
complaint had he been alive.
The complaints are available in SIA` Facebook.

Lesser intake of cabin crew

From what I understand, most of the classes that are going on at STC are for the A350 and A380. There are fewer classes for new crew. SIA is still having surplus creο½—。
SIA is trying to  reduce costs so it can survive in a cut throat environment. If it continues to make money like the last 2 quarters, it can reach the $1 billion mark in profit for year 2017. In this case, the staff and crew may even be rewarded with a 3 month bonus.
