What readers said re:"Nothing to be ashamed for being punished for upgrading a fellow colleague"

Absolutely agree with your assessment BT.
Cabin crew does work very hard to see to the comforts of many and yes deserve the same treatment when traveling for their own pleasure.
Furthermore as a twenty plus year CC for an american carrier it is understood that we all take care of each other. Basically what happens on board stays on board. We have to depend on each other for many things.
Shame on the cc who turned him in in the first place. Maybe too junior to understand the camaraderie e of flying together.
And shame on SQ for not allowing employees to fly first or business when those seats go empty.

Totally agree with you BT. In the past, whenever one's spouse or siblings travel with us, we take care of them. It doesn't cost anything or damage to the company.

In reply to the senior cc from American airlines, I think you might not know the true story as the header is abit misleading, it is not about upgrading fellow colleagues here. I am as disgusted as you and totally agree that it is disgusting our coy rather leave business and first class seats empty than to allow our staff to take them. However, the real story here is about a supervisory crew allowing his gf , who is an EX CREW to be upgraded and the gf behaves more demanding than a full paid commercial pax. Pardon me, I would have wrote him in as well, I am not a hypocrite.
I always believe, if you are a nice person, nice colleague, upgrade your whole family or offload the entire aircraft also nobody cares, its always karma, you killed someone, someone will kill you back.

It is not about upgrading his gf or anybody but it is about letting management using the excuse to put the screw on senior crew. It is also about letting mgmt dividing the cc and rule. Look at the bigger picture like BT is trying to get the msg across.

The "Anonymous" above may be the stewardess who reported the ifs or it may be the cc management trying to justify their decision to demote the ifs. Whoever they are they should be ashamed of themselves for posting the comment.

I dont understand this at all. Mr Moon upgraded his so called "girlfriend" and for his own benefits and she is not even his immediate family members.I will be ashamed to face my family if I was caught doing that! He is really lucky to have kept his job.Thank god his so called "kaki" gave him a lighter sentence and not sack him. .

I have upgraded all ranking crew when they paxed in uniform from DXB. Non ranking crew remained in Y but all had 3seats each to themselves.

From IFS,CS,LS, all sat in F. since it was empty with no transit stops. But they did not recieve any service and they had to help themselves to F&B, blankets, headsets.

Anyone of them could have reported this to the managers... even the pilots could report too.

But no one did... and I was prepared to draw swords with anyone in the office. Nothing came out of it.

I have even offered CCE travelling in Y to sit in J but they were too afraid of being reported. This shows how much CCE are the unloved hantus. There is great thick dividing line between operating crew and people who have access to personnel files.

Cabin crew is managed with fear & threats.
Like that how to be happy?

Down the tubes with SQ crew and down, down, down into the longkangs....

You sure you did? Their tickets are upgradable to First Class and if there are empty seats in JCL, how come ground staff did not UG the staff? Stop spreading the fears.

IFS said...

Management staff can buy subload tickets too. Perhaps they do not wish to exercise their annual free ticketz?

They may also decline to be upgraded even if there are vacant seats in higher class?

They may prefer to sit with their friends, etc who are not up gradeable?

so, offering them 2 seats up up JCL was an opportunity.. but the CCE was too afraid.. ( he was with a another person who was not a staff ).

He should have reported me to the office and let the fireworks begin.

Anonymous said...

Would you decline to be upgraded for free when you check in?

You started your own story and claimed that the CCE was afraid to be upgraded when you offered.

Who are you in the first place to grant the upgrade to a higher grade management staff inflight? Even if you have the authority, I am sure they won't need your help to get their entitled upgrade.

Exactly!.. they do not need our help!
So guys, gals!.. sing songs & dance on a volunteer basis?.. forgo off days to practice??.. hmmmm.. either there are really dumb people or dumber still.

My moto is always:

See See EEE?... run far away... neither friend or foe but the devil himself.
