Why aren't cabin crew getting along well with the pilots ?



There are many reasons why the pilots (technical crew) and cabin crew or flight attendants are not the best of friends. Most stewardesses and pilots get along well but not the stewards.
What I am going to say may not be 100% accurate. However, there are some truth in what I am going to post here.
  • A pilot's educational qualification is about the same as the cabin crew and yet their salaries are wide apart. A co-pilot draws an average salary of about $10,000 and the cabin crew $4,000.
  • The cabin crew in actual fact is not employed to serve the pilots but to serve the passengers.If one argues that part of the cabin crew's duty is to serve the pilots then why aren't they be rostered on the freighter or cargo flights (these flights do not carry passengers)?
  • The cabin crew often feels that the pilots are demanding and unreasonable. An example is the pilots could eat at any time when they are on duty. Cabin crew would have to serve them immediately even if they, the cabin crew are busy serving a full plane of passengers.
  • The cabin crew also feels that the pilots with their fat salary, would not eat before reporting for work. Instead, on boarding the aircraft, would order the cabin crew to serve them food and drinks during this busy period. In short, cabin crew feels that the pilots are miserly people.
  • The male cabin crew or stewards suspect the pilots are interested in the stewardesses. Subconsciously, the stewards are jealous over the pilots' position with the stewardesses. It is a known fact that most stewardesses look forward to getting romantically involved with the pilots. Quite a number in the past married pilots.
  • Many cabin crew feels that the pilots do not respect them and all they want is food,drinks and the girls.

Off course there are good things about the current cabin crew management

Despite of my post on " Isn't there anything good about cabin crew  ?" in which I said that  I hope some kind soul will email me some positive things about cabin crew, more negative comments were posted.

If no one is going to say that cabin crew is a good place to work, I am now going to do it myself in this blog.


The first positive thing that came to my mind is that when a crew's wife is going to give birth, the crew would either have the choice to apply for leave or still go on his flight. Even then, if the wife's is hospitalised or in labour, the crew concerned will be given a free ticket to fly back as a passenger to attend to the wife. This is the current practice.

During my time, the granting of leave would depend on seniority. If you were a junior steward and your child was to be delivered during the peak seasons like June or December (school holidays plus Xmas etc) you would not be granted the leave. The company would also not give you a free ticket to fly home. You would have to stick to your roster. 
My 2 kids were delivered when I was night stopping overseas.

The second nice thing about the current management is that it will looked into complains lodge by junior crew against the senior crew. If the seniors are wrong, actions will be taken against them.

In the old days, the company would back the seniors no matter what they had done.

The current appraisal system is an opened one, meaning the crew would sight the report and comment on the appraisal if he/she isn't happy with it. He/she is given the freedom to appeal against the report.

During my time, the appraisal system was a closed one. The appraisees were not allowed to sight the report, let alone appeal.

We had to work much harder than the present crew. One example, we had to operate 5 sectors before night stopping in London (with a break in the Middle East). There was no 2 1/2 times IFA. In fact, the payment of the IFA came into effect much later.


The SVPs are more proactive and mingle with the crew at sports event, meetings etc. 

During my time, our SVPs were too busy to do that. One in particular was the "atas atas" type and would not even mixed with us.

Okay, I hope I have done my part by saying a few positive things about the current cabin crew management. It is your turn now........

Isn't there anything good about cabin crew?

There are tons of comments in this blog regarding cabin crew. Most are negative comments. I hardly find positive comments. Most comments were from cabin crew. They expressed frustrations with the management for not being proactive nor engaging. They also complained about the way things were handled by the middle management people in the office. There were no compassion nor empathy. They alleged that they were being punished for making small mistakes.

Then there were backstabbing going on between the junior and senior crew. One case involved an IFS who was reported by a stewardess for upgrading another crew to the business class. The IFS was subsequently demoted to a leading steward position. Another was a case of a new stewardess who was sacked for her work performance when she was consistently rated as above average by the senior operating crew.

A poll is being put up in this blog to find out whether they have faith in management. So far a good 72% indicated they do not have faith in the current management (see above). Granted the survey may not be very accurate as I can't stop non-cabin crew readers from participating in the polls.

Frankly, I seldom received good report from my source in cabin crew. If I had, I would have love to publish them. I really wish cabin crew would email me some good and positive news about their work environment or work condition etc......

"Retirement for the CCE was indeed a sad chapter in SQ"...lamented a crew

Well, early retirement for the CCE was indeed a sad chapter in SQ..I have joined SQ in de 90s and has seen de glorious days when SQ crew were highly regarded as world number one crew.Now,we are tired,sad and frustrated bounded by constraints set by the company.We no longer are able to soar like we used to as we have limited resources that are being taken away due to cost cutting measures.
The current adoption of the Inflight Auditor are not making things better.Firstly,most of the IFS are there to serve their term like serving the National Service for 2 years.They have no power,no say in de CC division as they are not even in the mid level mangement.When you appraoch them for help or advice,they often cant do much as their "hands are tied"..Service standards has dropped in recent years and so has the ranking for SQ. CC no longer sets standards but instead has opted to accede to ridiculous request made by their frequent flyers.Memos issued to accomodate personal preference are now a common thing and sevice deviations are more rampant now as each passengers tends to make use of their status to abuse the system.Many a times, service standards are also set by "non flying managers" who dont even know anything and IA are just there to execute and be a messenger..Ranking for SQ is no longer important for the SVPs.They are more concerned about KPIs and profits..Who cares whether you are number one when you are in the red..
The day the old guards left, I saw the downfall of CC..Sad to say, SQ will never be number one again..

Nope he wasn't a cabin crew but a detective inspector

I met a guy at a coffee shop recently. We shared a table as the place was packed. He was a rather clean cut guy and tough looking. He was rather friendly and I introduced myself to him. He returned the gesture. He wanted to be known as Tony. He must be around 45 years I guessed.
Tony as I found out was a retired policeman, yes a plain clothes detective. Tony's last rank in the police force was an Inspector. He told me he took the early retirement as he found his job very stressful. Today, Inspector Tony is a private investigator. His job scope covered fraud investigation, spouse cheating to espionage etc etc..
I found Tony to be an interesting person and so I let him do most of the talking and me most of the questioning. In fact, it should be the other way round as he was an investigator. But then I supposed he liked to talk to me because I was not the subject of his investigation nor the one who wrote his pay check.
Tony liked to talk about his job as a police inspector and private investigator (PI). He talked almost non stop about his adventure throughout the one hour I spent at his table. He was a heavy drinker I noticed,finishing almost 3 bottles of beer within that hour. Many times he had offered me beer but I stood firm and had black coffee instead.

I am more than happy to share my experiences on and off.

It was my childhood dream to fly and till today, it is still a dream of many.

Many people want to know about life as a tech crew, perhaps I should write a Tech Crew perspective of Mile Hi Club? maybe after I retired like you. But long way to go lah, only in my early 40s.

I will contribute my views on and off, for the benefit of your readers and also training to be a author myself.

Cannot say lah. Just say I am quite a new commander.

Let me share one experience with an asXhole pax.

The pax sits in business class, and she claim to hear unusual noises in the aircraft and ask to crew to investigate. CC crew appraoch me but the flight instruments did not indicate any abnormality. but the pax insisted on asking me out of the cockpit, and I got no choice but to go and talk to the pax.

Literally have to assure her that the is nothing wrong with the aircraft (there was no abnormal noise!) And no matter how I insisted, she keep insisting I land the aircraft ASAP.

So not only CC have to deal with difficult pax, even tech crew have to at times!

Ground speed is never so fast, it is air speed that carries us to more than 1000km if we meet with favourable tail wind. depending on aircraft, ground speed is usually mach 81 to 84.

Well to anonynomous cabin crew, go on, attack our community. You are just like Dr Mahathir, where clearly Singapore has achieve a lot more as a country, but he just needs to keep having verbal attacks on Singapore.

I am away till feeding time? FYI, I better things to do than to respond to these remarks. I do not deny we have cocky pilots, but I have also met my fair share of cocky cc. I have seen cabin crew converting to pilots by becoming cadets, and you are welcome to join us, just need to talk to Edward from HR and I am sure he will be glad to assist.

New Generation IFS

Its very normal. In organisations like SIA, its quite common to see DINOSAUR (ie people who have been in the co for 30 yrs and are resistent to changes). Older generations are fearful of younger ones taking over their jobs due to these people having better qualifications.

For Tech Crew, many of those older Capts have only O levels or max A levels, but in the tech crew environment, there is no fear of younger ones outshining them and take over them. But of course if these Capt are gunning for Union positions, then its different matter, you will see some level of "politics" in this case.

In the cockpit, its not education that matters, its your situational awareness, technical skills (aka flying skills), decision making capability in double quick time that really matters. We even have qualified Doctors who are now flying with us, but they too have to give due respect to the Capts cos your PHD or Masters is not an asset in the cockpit.
9/7/09

Ignorant boy said...
Wah Singapore Capt i didnt know doctors also become tech crew. Even PHDs and Masters also.Flying must be very exciting and satisfying and well paid job i supposed(40k a month?).If i am wrong how much does a capt with sia actually gets?

Singapore Capt said...
Ignorant boy.

$40k per month? To reply in a very Singaporean way... Wait Long Long!

Capts basic salary starts from about $9000 per month, First Officers about $5000 (rough figure)

We have allowances paid based on the number of hours we operate a flight, plus allowances for meals during overseas stay.

no way we can earn $40k per month, unless we are pilots of Cathay Pacific, then maybe. SIA? Dun you know SIA = Suffer In Agony? or Scholarship In Aviation

anymore? I going for a flight now. Like it or not,life goes on as normal for all tech crew despite ur verbal attacks. We still do our job and ensure everyones' safety (including Yours btw) & arriving in their destination, sending them to their loved ones, who wait for their father, mother, children eagerly at the airport.

Even if we have a load full of cocky cabin crew, we will still do what we are required to do, ensure u do your job in a safe environment and returning u back to your family.

Unless you stop flying, you cannot live without pilots, and yes, we cant take off without minimum number of cabin crew as well.

And before you start telling us tech crew to learn manners, your manners in this thread (and previous) already shows that u are the one who needs the training. Seems like cabin crew training has failed on u.

I rest my case.

I know a SFO who likes his job but when I asked him if it is a great job, his reply was 'it is just another job'. Although I think he earns about 10-12k a mth (basic + allowances), there are times when it is both tiring and stressful (when there are special circumstances on board). And there is another SFO who says that his job is unchallenging and boring, guess this type of person needs new challenges every now and then, so may not be suitable for a pilot job. A suitable profile would be someone who likes to travel, loves doing the same things over and over again and getting better at it with every flight, appreciate the financial security, enjoy the company of stewardesses, not concerned about air-crashes, enjoy a/c food, enjoy staying in hotels, carefree/happy go lucky attitude, and of course likes to keep fit.

Well, u r not wrong. But allow me to share some views.

Many pilots actually love what they r doing. However, being a commercial pilot is not an easy job.

SIA main revenue generators are the longhaul flights, and due to time differences, many of these flights takeoff in the middle of the night. I got at least 3 flights out of Singapore that are like that every month. trying to keep awake when your body clock is telling you to sleep, is not easy. In the long run, it probably has a major impact on your health. I am one of those who cant sleep in a plane and there are many like me.

The stress of the job is comes when situations arises, eg, in flight engine failure (happens a few times before), medical condition onboard which requires emergency landing, lightning strike just to name a few. We have to make on the spot decisions with whatever information we have (most of the time, its limited information due to time constraint), something which not many people enjoy.

We have pilots who leave us to have career change, I know of a FO who is now a banker, a Capt same age as me who is into extreme sports is now doing his own business. The FO of SQ6, who is in the jumpseat when the crash happen, has left the airline although SIA did retain him.

Hi Singapore Capt,

Sir, thanks for sharing. It was one of my ambitions to be a pilot too when I was younger. In fact, I sent in my resume when I was 28 to SIA, but was not called up for an interview.

Please do not get me wrong. SIA pilots have all my respect. You guys have a superb job and a glamorous one too, with lotsa responsibilities.

If you can keep sharing your experiences on board, I would be glad to read. I know of 4 of my ex secondary school friends who are SFOs now and an ex-colleague who is also a SFO. The most senior one is 2 years away from assuming command.

I am accustomed to SIA jargon like A/C, LHR, LAX, 380, 744, etc as I have worked within the SIA group as an executive and have boarded and flown on several different A/c types in the past in addition to having family ties with people who worked at SIA. So I should be able to understand the jargon that you all usually use.
12/7/09

Capt Foong is still flying but for the sake of his career, I am not willing to disclose where is he working, ultimately, he was at the controls when the plane crash although is a systematic failure. Eagle

Well, in life, I believe that everything is fated. Maybe someone up there think u make a better executive than to be stuck in a cockpit with another guy for 80 hrs a month? Well, yes, we refer A/C to aircraft but not all readers of the blog works in the airline so I will write it the non SIA way. So 744 i will still write as B747-400.

Wah, inadvertently I helped Boh Tong increase readership, perhaps I should ask Boh Tong for a share of revenue? hee hee... As someone pointed out, our pay used to be = minister, now only 20% of minister pay!

I also have friends who are CC and they enjoy their work. They appreciate what SIA offers them and work hard during meal service. Seldom take MC and enjoy their stay while outstation.

They only complain when they have a full load of pax to serve in economy class, but when they are serving in first and raffles class, things seem to be less stressful. My friend who is a LS, likes his job when he is serving in first class, sometimes, only 1 pax or 3 pax, easy job, while getting paid to go overseas. However, nowadays, think it's very different from the past, when CC used to enjoy long stays overseas, nowadays, think most sectors are tight, and only perhaps Nanjing has one of the longer stays.

Get your facts right. Systematic Error is the result of investigation done by CAAS, our own regulatory body. Where did u see the tech crew blaming weather, airport? Provide evidence to back up ur claim.

1 FO was retained. Which is another mistake of u. Before jumping into conclusions, do some research!

And it is easy to be arm chair critic, I bet if u are in the cockpit, u will run away faster than anyone. Unless u r in the scene, u will not know how u react, especially when its a matter of life and death.

btw,who triggered the systematic error?cockpit crew or cabin crew or weather or taipei ATC or the housefly?
can you people take ownership for once.i fully agree about you people's habit of blaming others.

I can say 4 sure tt Tc and CC must stay at the same hotel. These TC always cause problem in the crew room and at check. Then staff don not know and blame cc. So the best we work in ac together but stay separately. Less problem.

Capt Foong yes, he is a Capt of a bus, and its an Airbus.

So another mistake of urs. Go find out more before ranting ur rubbish here.

Sigh...u dun understand English? Conclusion is by CAAS. Not anyone else, not tech crew, not cabin crew.

Who needs manners training when all can see ur manners in this thread?

You have an axe to grind with Tech crew issit? So far all the tech crew in this thread are refined and stick to facts, and its you who go on ranting and ranting about the same issue. Get a life my friend.

Boh Tong is certainly happy here, all the ranting by u creates more readership.

Well, if u earn more as a result of this blog, its good for SIA in general, in the sense that people are more aware of the life as a cc or tc.

Good Day. I am a First Officer on the 380 fleet and I get along very well with the CC. During night-stops, I sometimes hang out with CC and have meals with them too. On board, I go downstairs to chat with them during lull period. No problems at all with CC.

hi FO of A380,nice to know that you get along well with cabin crew.do you know he that some of your pilots are very rude and demanding?more so the young ones from up north.personally i have experiened it bcos i am rather junior in rank.so i think that bitter cabin crew is not entirely wrong.

A380 FO.

In London, 1 set of cc stay with tc in same hotel. In Paris, also same hotel. So for A380 fleet, TC have many opportunities to interact with CC. In London where there is a common crew room at the hotel, lagi best

I was a CCE and one of 1980s steward trainees is now a captain with sia. I met him recently in a lift (just 2 of us).On seeing me entering the lift he turned away and face the floor. His face was like 6 ft long. I met him a few times before I left sia and it was the same story. This is sad but true.

Singapore Capt,

Now i am not a CC/TC but am based in one of the stations you mentioned regarding nightstopping. (One of the most unlikely places to eat MeePok Tah round the corner). Anyways, most of the CC/TC i have encountered, are pretty nice people. Never had any real issues with them.

But thumbs up for the way you are handling the verbal diarrhoea. Logic always prevails.

One short comment - Good for TC/CC to also be pally with the Ground Staff. Fu8ion right?

yes,they are.my ifs told one of them off for demanding for breakfast half a hour before arrival and he complained to his capt who advised him to be more considerate.we felt like giving him some money for breakfast.

Young pilots from up north are rude? Haha, well, then they deserve being badly treated by CC. So what if you are a pilot? Even top CEOs or Bankers who earn $3-5m a year are polite and courteous when asking for their meals on board.
A380 stations are great, only SYD a bit tiring, no Indian night stops or super long-haul states flights or draggy Tokyo/Seoul night-stops before/after LAX/SFO flights that take ages before getting back to Singapore so maybe TC mood are better.

I am an Air-Force Pilot and stumbled upon this website as I weigh my options whether or not to hop over into commercial flying. Looks like it's quite bad the situation between the pilots and the cabin crew, makes me wonder what your management is doing to address it ..........
