This was a comment from a cabin crew supposedly an IFS regarding the cabin crew executives:
"Hello.....I have never respect all those good for nothing "up at the throne" CCE since day 1 and mind you, me too have come a long way. Not today, not in the future will I ever change my view on that, I had seen enough for your work ethic to say that. Lick boots, sleep with you pathetic low life hahaha some did it but they are equally low life too. Let's see how far they can go as a ZERO being brought up by another ZERO hahaha BIG ZEROs...."
BT: The CCEs was a professional group of senior cabin crew management staff whose job was to train and ensure the service on board all SQ flights is maintained at the highest level.
However, in 2003 during the SARS crisis the airline decided to make the position redundant. It was done with the excuse that the CCEs were overpaid.
The CCEs were replaced by the Inflight Supervisors or IFS (later retitled as IA or Inflight Auditor) whose salaries were lower. The IFS or IA lacked training capabilities as they had zero training experience.
Nevertheless, the IFS/IA were very happy to see the CCEs go as there will be no one to oversea and check their work performances.
Since the redundancy of the CCEs' position, the service standard has been declining.
