Cabin Crew vs Cockpit Crew(Technical Crew).

Relationship between cabin and cockpit crew has never been better,I was told. During the old days, pilots were a pain to cabin crew. Pilots were demanding in terms of food,drinks and respect from cabin crew (cc). If a cc didn't introduced oneself to the capt,then it became a big issue. Cc had been offloaded from flights by capts for trivial issues. The flight ops side at one stage had even ask the company to place cc under their charge. In this manner,cc division would have to report to flight ops,in short the capts would have more authority over cc. However,the idea was thrown out because SIA knew what the capts were up to.
These days,the relationship between the 2 divisions are much better. Capts are more understanding towards cc and the daunting task they face when serving full loads of passengers. In fact,SIA resolves the issue by adding a criteria in the promotion of co-pilots to capts. The issue of getting along well with cc is also an important aspect of promotion of pilots. The pilots who are competent in their flying technicalities and abilities must also be good in crew relationship and man management skills or otherwise would not be made a capt.
In the old days,if one can fly well and sucked up to the bosses would be promoted. The aspect of human relationship was not important. That resulted in us having capts who were poor in man management.
I also found out more and more gals wanting to marry pilots even though the salaries of pilots or at least the purchasing power of their money is not as strong as before. Why is it so? The answer may be due to the better understanding and rapport between the pilots and cc.
Pilots and cc pls correct me if I have gone wrong in posting the above....thank U!

every place has their fair share of lousy bosses, likewise we have cocky Capts and FOs too. Not forgetting we also have cocky IFS onboard as well.

But wat is true is that pilots salary are not like before, and its true that many Cabin crew ladies are trying to hitch on the pilots.

The above must hv been written by a cockpit crew. They are merely highly paid drivers.It is ok we are waitresses but we got class and don't eat aircraft food like them just to save money to buy landed properties or condos.

Singapore Capt said...

1st, in SQ terms, we are known as Technical Crew, not Cockpit Crew. 2nd, if u think we are just mere bus drivers, tell me how if we are incapacitated, how are u gonna land the plane? Granted that the plane have autoland feature, but 1st, do u even know how to radio for help?

We eat aircraft food, and cabin crew dun eat at all?

Boh Tong
Yes, I'm a young Capt. sad to say, by the time we become Capt, the FSS or LSS wun be interested in us, they still prefer FOs.

Sorry for my response, its towards the comments, not Cabin Crew in General.

one more thing you forgot,those cocks don't even know what is their feed.

you mean IN their feed bro!

boh tong said...

S'pore Capt thanks for highlighting to us about being Technical and not Cockpit crew.
The gals prefer F/Os because they are younger and most aren't married.These gals are in for the long term and so chances of marrying F/Os are better,who 1 day would also be capt.

Cabin crew are childish and has shit in their brains.just look at their comments here and under other topics.They fight amongst themselves and now want to ridicule us,the tech crew.

Singapore Capt said...

Boh Tong

Yup. Now that I got my command, I have FSS and LSS coming up to me very frequently.

Purpose? hee... Not that I am lucky, they just ask whether if my FO is married or attached.

Now perhaps the cabin crew who are interested in Capt are CSS, IFSS, maybe IFS also (Peter Yap?) haha

You know the joke about taxi lights? At night, we rely on lights for taxiing the aircraft. Blue are the left and right limits, red is stop line, green is centreline. So we literally stick to green (LSS), stop at red (CSS), avoid the blue (FSS)

Oh my goodness here we go again.
Technical crew and cabin crew is at war.
One party starts calling the other names and the fight begins.
How to be a gracious society?
Everyone of us have our differnces.
Being a pilot or a cabin crew one should know where to draw the line.
Please do not dicriminate one another on their educational level and their profession.
Any job is a decent job regardless whether it be a taxi driver, bus driver, waiter or waitress.
One should be proud of whatever ones'job is.

Please stop despising one another.
Let the rest of the world see us as not that "UGLY STINKAPOREANS".

There will be a few black sheep in Technical Crew and Cabin Crew and in the office.
Not forgetting the whole of Singapore.
It just speak VOLUME about that person's character and personality.

We all need one another to do a good job!

So dont expect 4 million people in Singapore to have the SAME intelligence, beauty,wealth, health, appearance, personality etc...etc.......

Take this blog as a form of entertainnment. :-)

Please dont get personal with the comments.

We all know CC announcement are scripted. u all read fr the script, how difficult is that? Yes, not many Tech Crew make gd announcement, but then, we dun read fr scripts, if we have to read fr scripts, we can be as gd if not better.

So whoever cc is talking here, get your facts right before u ridicule us

boh tong said...

Think cc and Tech crew shldn't fight over trivial matter. I posted this article bcoz I thght the 2 groups are getting along fine not like during my days...but am I wrong??..hope not huh.
Let's talk nice things abt each other ok?
S'pore capt ur illustration abt the taxi lights and colors are real cute.Ya i wld prefer the "green" too cos not too old nor too young..hehehe
