Flight Attendant Location Meal Allowances (LMA)


As a practice, SIA usually puts its cabin crew in 5 star hotels when they stopped overseas.
When deciding the crew's LMA, the current union and management has come to an agreement to use the hotel menu prices.
Naturally, the menu prices in a 5 star hotel are higher than lets say a 4 or 3 or 2 star hotel.

However, due to slower growth and lower profits, the airline has downgraded some of the crew hotels. As a consequence, the LMA has also been affected. This action has resulted in lower LMA for the crew but a huge savings for SIA.


The airline has every right to downgrade the crew hotel. It's better for the crew to stay in less than 5 star hotels than not to lose their jobs. However, the crew aren't happy.

Has the crew been offered an alternative? My answer is Yes!
In the union election campaign 2010 the incumbent party (Heart) promised to have look at the "per diem" payment instead of the LMA being tied to hotel menu prices.

However, the crew went against the incumbent's idea of the per diem payment and subsequently voted them out.

Today the crew blamed everybody except themselves for their lower take-home pay. Interested ? .. then read this article.

Must I be Tony to reply? Well, I am the 10-15% who does not hate Tony. Its you ppl that creates "chaos and resentment" among crew by misleading them. Honestly, what do you gain??!! There are truth that cannot be cover by just your words. You can mislead here but you will never cover truth.

Unfortunately, Alan and his gang (I did not use dogs unlike you.) did not come out with a better CA. I am not saying whose is better but today why I need to pay back the LMA is all Alan's doing on 23rd June 2010 together with Jamal.

Yes, If i am on per diem I do not HAVE to pay back! The flip side is I have to pay extra tax! http://www.iras.gov.sg/irashome/page.aspx?id=3672

See point number 3. Either way (Alan or Tony) all crew kenna Whacked.

So anyone for a better solution? Maybe BT wanna run the next election for Union Chief.

Don't forget that lma automatically caters for inflation. If you are on per diem. Can you imagine how difficult it will be in future to increase the per diem rate? With menu prices. You get a raise together with inflation when hotel raises their prices.
