A comment from our reader

5year flying junior:

Hi BT,

SIA was a great way to fly but no longer I must say. I have to agree with you that the ground in SIA is in the lowest morale ever. I hope MOM read this, I hope NTUC reads this ( I hope Chairman SIA and the whole world read this too).

It seems to me that the mgt is more keen to catch the crew on postings on facebooks, whether the height of your hair "hump" exceeds by 1mm, whether male crew hair at the side is long enough to be pulled, whether your skirt is shorter by 1cm when you attend CP12 ( also waiting to slam trainees if their ex-crew parents tour the office) than worrying how to bring the airlines together as a whole, I felt the biggest irony in this top 50 most admired airlines is one of our core values "welfare for colleagues".

I heard one latest crew went bonkers on a latest CP12 after being nagged and nagged about her skirt is how cm shorter than the required length. The crew shouted back the the mgt : F U I DONT NEED THIS JOB OK.. Isnt X factor or flamboymant character what the airlines was looking for when we go for interviews? Why the so much emphasis on this nowadays ? ( low morale and not just reduction in LMA, tighter operating patterns etc is the main cause of the drop in SQ's inflight service ranking. When we were there SQ always maintain the no.1 position until so much so that  even "Other airlines talk about" SQ's service).

In my opinion, SQ cabin crew division needs to reinvent itself otherwise it may slipped right down to obscurity.

BT: The text in blue were inserted by yours truly.

I heard too but can't confirm it.

Something must be very wrong with the cabin crew management in SQ for a subordinate to shout at them.

i dont think it was a petition...it was an appeal to company by cabin crew...btw..i read n signed it aswell :)

It was not a petition or appeal that save the 2 boys. It was good mitigation work by Tony. He was helped by Kennedy who had a little bit training in law. Only about a hundred indian crew who signed the appeal. 100 out of 8000 crew. Big deal. And petition was not started by the Menish but IFS Krishan. Krishen appeals to tony many times. Tony helped even though the 2 boys are not union members.

OK, you may not like Tony. But be fair, credit due, credit given. The panel did not take a look at the petition at all. Ask Chen, ask Seth. Ask Kennedy who holds the petition. It was good mitigation work by Tony. And Thiru was lucky. Being an ARC comm member, a testimonial was written for him by ARC(probably Yusoff). That was READ by management. You should read his postings. He used vulgarities on Indian passengers. He is a lucky boy indeed. No lawyers in the world could have saveD him. TPT was very kind towards him.
Though the no. of those who signed the petition is small and management did not even bother about it, something good came out from all these. When the chips are down, cabin crew unite. So guys, stop politicising everything. Feel happy for the 2 boys and thank Tony for saving them. Times are hard so take care of ourselves and one another.

NOW ITS MY BUTT ALSO LAUGHING

hahaha, my butts are cracking up too.
You sound like one of the brothers who is known to twist facts and take all the glory on other ppls hard work.
1. there were no vulgarities towards any individual
(you sound like you know the case like the back
of your hand) stop lying ok
2. it should not have gone to CI (tony could have stopped
it)
3. there were worst cases but DI. Com wants to use this
case to scare crew frm commenting anything in fb.
4. appeal letter was started to help these two crew to
make an appeal and not given to management but to
appeal panel.
5. its nice to see crew coming together to help a fellow crew at their very low part of their lives when all hope is lost. I signed the letter and i feel good that i made a diff in their lives when they needed help.
6. i can gather that you did not signed and you making an
excuse n say that the appeal letter is not relevant. It only shows what a person you are and want to take credit
for other ppls hardwork for being there and helping
these two boys all the way.
Stop being a hypocrite
