Lower LMA (Location Meal Allowances) for crew.

New LMA




Old LMA

Got this latest LMA figures (top table) from my source. I understand it's about 7% reduction across the board. The main reason for the decrease is that the LMA is "tied" to the hotel menu where the crew are staying. For example, a breakfast in Australia and New Zealand cost around S$53 and the crew is paid that amount. But if the airline downgrade the crew hotel to a cheaper one,naturally the breakfast on the menu would cost less than $53. This will result in the crew getting lesser than $53 for the breakfast allowance. A breakfast in a cheaper hotel could cost as low as $20 to $30.
The above is agreed on an interim basis from 1 Jan 2013 to 30 June 2013. After June, there will be another revised LMA which could either go up or down.

CC deserves every bit of it for voting Choice. Do you ever suspect Toni is a company's mole???

I am not a fan of LKY but I will say the real chairman during Pillay's time was LKY. LCB was the MD who did all the dirty work. SIA was LKY's baby. Without him, SIA wouldn't be able to grow so fast.

LMA calculation is based on hotel menu and currency exchange. Who agreed to move into cheaper hotels in exchange for a share in the savings?

Stories From The Air said...

You guys forgot that the crew were having a lot of morale problems with Pillay till LKY stepped in.

Give toni and his team some time. I am sure he can improve on the dollar quantum. He is very good with figures. Just be patient and have belief.
