We often hear from Singaporean passengers that crew discriminate them and give better service to caucasian passengers than them.Do you ever wonder why the S'pore passengers are not treated as nice and warm as the other passengers?
The answer is very simple. The crew hate passengers who are demanding,bossy,intimidating etc. and the only way to get back at them is to discriminate. How else do you expect the crew to react to those nasty passengers? You don't expect the crew to beat them up or be rude to them,right? So the only way is to show favour to the caucasian.
To give you an example,the Singapore pax when boarding the aircraft would rudely demand for a Straits Times. It goes like this..."hey steward get me a straits Times" whereas another pax would asked the crew politely like this.."If you have the time could you please get me a newspaper?" If you are a crew who do you prefer to give good service?
Once I had a pax( young S'porean)who was an executive with a big multi national company in S'pore.He was travelling business class. To show that he was a seasoned traveller with SIA, he would would his index finger to call for service. He would criticised and ridiculed the stewardesses and senior crew for the slightest things in the presence of his business associates. He would poked fun at SIA management for recruiting "ugly" stewardesses. He also told his associates that SIA stewardesses were flat chested and likened them to an airport runway.
The above are only 2 of the many examples of Singaporean behaviour.
So why blame the crew when they discriminate you?
