TPT does well by not retrenching the crew. You and I know perfectly well the number of deadwoods in cabin crew. Not only are they deadwoods but drawing big fat salaries too. These are mostly senior cc ( not all ok cos there are some good ones too). Make a survey and ask the junior crew whether I am right or wrong (you will have one soon).
As to the senior crew's retirement not being extended why blame TPT? Blame it on the recession. TPT is merely doing his job. BUT he could have retrenched or offer early retirement to the senior crew like his predecessor.
There others who accused TPT of dismissing those male crew who molested the stewardesses or stole SIA's belongings. In fact those wrong doers were lucky to be sacked. There will come a day when another SVPcc would have these type of cases reported to the police and have them jailed and caned for molest or theft.
Hello senior cc be grateful la not only to TPT but to SIA as well who takes good care of you from the cradle to your grave!
