At least there are 2 supporters for SIA now

These 2 comments by my readers who are/were presumably cabin crew or ex cabin crew. Most comments are negative except these 2.

Don't BS lah. Flyin as a cc is still better than many other jobs outside. Ask the retired cc who are only good for driving taxis,being chauffers to MBS or the likes,security guards working 12 hr shift for 50 bucks a day.

At the end of the day everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Myself for the matter, as a cabin crew i feel this job is great. Theres no job where everyone is happy with management unless they are management themselves. What's important is you love our job. Loving my job doesnt necessarily loving my company. I try to keep pax happy cause i want them to not because company ask me to. Those who think its abit too much just means ure not cut for the service sector. Even in hotel industry or restaurants you will come across demanding customers. Look at flyin positively. You work a maximum 90hrs a mth after which any hour more u are paid incentive flying penalty allowance. And u get paid what? At least 4.5-5k for a non-ranking crew. Outside on a 9-5 basis people clock at least 160hrs a month n they dun get the luxury of stayin in bed on a monday morning while others are cramming into crowded buses and trains. Yes as a cabin crew u dun always get weekends off but hey, thats part of the sacrifice. You cant always get the best in life. The glory days of cc are over but doesnt mean u still cant enjoy flying. If out of 6-8 flts a mth in ur roster and they are all terrible flts, and ure still flying, then sth is probably wrong with u. But the reality is, out of the number above, there are flts u enjoy workin because u have an awesome set of crew with u that makes flyin still enjoyable. Its the 1 or 2 shitty flight you have that makes u feel flyin is no longer fun. Remember. Love the job. Not the company. I have terrible flts too sometimes but then again we just gota sweep it under the rug and move on. Enjoy the money that comes in every week be it if its 17.50 or 1.5k. I bet seth see and phony tony visit this blog too.

I also agree that becoming a cc is better than most jobs when one only has a diploma or O level. Most of my friends who are dip holders are doing desk bound jobs that don't even pay 2.5k. Consider yourself lucky especially when you are a cc with SQ.

but unless you intend to stay in SQ for ur whole life, this job does not translate to experience at all outside.
