SQ currently is still shortage of cabin crew, especially junior crew in Blue, with 19 A380 flying everyday, every flight is 22 crews, SQ26/25 would required approximately 90 crews a day.
On my recent flight to HKG on a A330 airbus, chief steward is working in the galley, there were 4 chief on that flight, was told by one, they were been call up on standby.
They are still very selective in their recruitment, therefore so many interview in Singapore & Asia countries
