Interesting reply

The following is an interesting reply to my post "Pilots have the last laugh..hahaha"(below)

No comparison:

A) Pilots join with long term career prospects laid before them.. till 60yrs. Cabin crew: 5 year terms etc.

B) They are all same gender. cabin crew: Male+ Female+ Undecided

C) They are smaller in number.
about 1000+ cabin Crew: 6000+

D) They have VERY DEFINED ROLES with VERY CLEAR duties.. and they are supported by LEGAL structure.
Cabin Crew: I report you, you report me... we report police, MP,Straits Times... etc

E) They are executives. Cabin Crew: rank & file

F) They are represented by independant elected representatives... NOT AFFILIATED WITH NTUC. Cabin Crew: whoever talks the loudest, whoever has time to loiter at STC or Airline house.. whoever knows who is who.

G) Seniority is an asset unlike Cabin crew.. seniority is a liability.

H) They all wear the same clothes,checked short sleeves shirt and black pants ( same as uniform) Cabin Crew: try to outdress each other.

I) They all think that FSS are easy. Cabin Crew: they all think pilots are stingy

J) Their training is very costly and they are bonded for 7 years.. therefore, they keep their mouths shut. Cabin Crew: "so what?" pay lor!!

Do not compare Pilots with Cabin Crew.
Otherwise we would be staying in same hotels, having same flight patterns, same rates of allowances, same reporting times.

Pilots are not interested in what happens to cabin crew. Cabin crew are not interested with pilots.
Its 2 different worlds.

May I reserved my humble option for the rest and just speak for one mentioned above.

In 2 years time(Max), even the TC & CC stay in the same hotel, they won't be paid the same location meal allowance. Reason? Read the CC CA. Anyone beg to defer?

Bottom line is, both SIA Pilots and Crew, have too much pride and HUGE egos.

SIA are a bunch of complainers... Bad Roster - Complain. Good Roster - Still complain. What do you expect? All Europe and US flights? India flights - All yearning to take MC.

You are the destroyer of your own life lor. Deserve it SIA Crew.

Yes CC will get more. After discounts given by hotel for the meals re-imbursement, TC will get less.

Alas, but to the few who yearned to be heard of their pain and unrest, yep Capitan, I have the spirit of life, to live for love, wine, women (if there are any out there)and karaoke.

SIA Capt said...

CC & TC has to be united against the co.paxs etc etc. But please don't get me wrong because I am not saying SIA is a bad co.
When we are in harmony with one another we work better and be happier.
My wife is an ex fss and I can empathize cc better.
Any comments for anyone?

btw, if TC delay landing by a few minutes, extra mins counted as extra mins of work time for cc. for TC, we are paid according to block time, so even if we do a go around and land 1 hr later, we are still paid on block time, not 1 hr extra

cts said...

Spore capt cc is talking about the meal allowance eg if chocks on 1901hrs into SIN we get dinner right?
