What about this captain?

Captain J was a captain with an ego as big as the A380. He boasted he was the best pilot SIA ever had. He used to tell the cabin crew to hold a cup full of water during the aircraft landing and it won't spilled a drop because he could land the plane smoothly. But many a times,I myself had experienced the cup of water being thrown over the cabin floor when the plane landed. When told of the spillage,capt J would point to his co-pilot and told us it was the co-pilot who landed the plane. However, whenever it was a smooth landing,capt J would claim the credit even though we knew the landing was by his co-pilot.
Capt. J loved caviar and although there was a perpetual shortage of caviar,he would somehow twisted the supervisors' arms into getting served with caviar in the cockpit.
Capt J boasted endlessly about being good to the cabin crew. There was a time when the crew had problem with a violent passenger,capt J sheepishly locked himself in the cockpit and let the supervisor fend for his crew.
It wasn't just caviar,it was about everything else that he wanted to have priority...even over passengers.
I knew capt J for almost 30 years before his retirement and he had never ever bought me a cup of coffee.
Capt J was a miser and before even he retired,he owned a string of houses.
I understand he still gives the check in staff at the airport lots of problem whenever he uses his free of charge ticket because they didn't address him as captain so and so.
Frankly,the ground staff do not care two hoots who you are or were as long as you are no longer their superior!

Wa Lau eh, this Captain sure is a lousy one. Stingy guy, but have you met pple who organise a crew gathering for eg and pay the bill first but collect more from each person so that he/she does not need to pay plus maybe profit from it.

Yes, I met one coll who just did that. Went out for a gathering and he paid the bill and then collected more from everyone so at the end, he gained from the whole thing. Asked him about it and he pretended to be unsure and then avoided me after that so that I wont ask again. Weirdo!

Ha Ha, i had to pay for good check reports in order to be promoted to IFS. THE TOTAL AMOUNT WAS REALLY SUBSTANTIAL!

All of you CCEs were accepting payment for good check reports and recommendations.

HA HA, and now you all deny this money making racket.

of course the CPIB had great difficulty to catch anyone because all the transactions were done overseas.

Cash Cash Baby, Cash Cash baby.

For those who do not understand what is going on.....

a check report is a performance appraisal done periodically by CCEs, the management staff of Cabin Crew.

CCEs periodically come on board the flights to do performance appraisals on the various levels of CABIN CREW.

If the CCEs do not like you and you get a bad check appraisal, this can lead to a poor performance record which greatly affects your chances of promotions and how fast you get promoted.

This situation became for many CCEs a fast money making scam and various Cabin Crew members had to pay exhorbitant amounts to get a good check appraisal.

But of course, all the check appraisals were done 45,000feet up in the air, in the aeroplanes on the different routes to different destinations......and the crew would receive a note in our boxes informing us that we will be on check on the coming flights in our rosters and were hinted to bring some "EXTRA shopping money" on that particular flight.

and the money would be given to the CCEs during the flight when we are given the check appraisal for endorsement.

now that i have my IFS, i am not afraid to reveal how i got my rank.

MOST OF THE EX CABIN CREW WERE ON SUSPICION TO BE PART OF THE RACKET, AND PROOF WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND, EXCEPT THE WHISTLE BLOWER......THAT'S THE MAIN REASON SIA GOT RID OF YOU GUYS...NOT ONLY FOR BEING USELESS DINOSAURS... BUT RICH DINOSAURS.

samantha sim was seen collecting money for check appraisals, being so junior at that time, she must have been under pressure by her senior mentor.
