Comments from cabin crew


5 years flying junior: 
I just touched down and at 12.45midnight, i find it an absolute must to address something before i sleep. First of all, a big congrats to "jane" as you manage to do what many find it tought to do, and that is to step out.

Second to "I wanna be an SQ Gal" , before you call others dog, you have to get a few facts right. You only see the outside while we are in the inside , so there are many things that you really dont understand about flying.

I am also one of Mr BT participants of talks and I am like you before, been there done that. I was aspired to be a CC and went to many interviews but failed until I met Mr BT. To cut the story short, from being super proud of wearing the old sky blue male jackets uniform to now dieing to get out. What do you think has happened?

Many argued monetarily. From London 1.2k down to $600 to repaying company on LMA, to me these affects but not the real problem, personally , crew are using these to vent their anger. I am someone that can accept paycuts to help the company when in difficult times, but I am one that cannot tolerate company bullying crew and dont give us the recognition we deserve as an employee instead of a number.

HEre is my breakdown.

1) I cannot tolerate seeing a 60 year old IFS that serve the company for more than 25 years paxing in EYCL for holiday while a young AO or even a captain wife that got no contribution to the company pax in JCL. Surely something can be done here but company choose to ignore.
2) Many say good practice comes from home and within. Apparently our company is not. Many times mgt come down to us to do the extra mile. SOAR, not business as usual, passengers smile makes it all worthwhile, but within us, when we need help, CONTROL, PLANNING, OFFICE are they so helpful? Do they do small touches or go extra mile to help us when we need help urgently? Is company forgiving and patient with us if we make mistake? Humans can make mistakes but not CC. Sad to say I flew for 5 years, i got NONE from these people, even at STC , get paper to print official documents also need to beg and ask you why you need the paper, then give you 3 piece lol
3)WHY in entire company group, ONLY CC have casual and non casual MC, why office , ground staff, or even mgt do not have such categorization? Are CC not human to fall sick or get injured?

I can list on and on, the crux is, many crew have lost it already even the leaders, from the bottom of my heart, we are not complaining for nothing, it is really bad now. The company traditional mindset have to change.

Mr BT, i did not cut ties with you la ha ha ha ....I chose to be quiet at the moment and support your blog all these while, going through big transition by leaving , next year i very free liao can find you lim kopi....good night..

Why sia so many problems? Working for UA or EK is really better. FAs are happy there but not like sia. Think it is a morale and poor management issues. Got to do something before it is too late.

Black out dates are fixed by USA embassy! Has nothing to do with company or union. Pls la.. be fair to company n union. Dun every shit also push to them and smear them. Who you think SIA and union are? Go and tell US embassy off ah?
Know your bloody place as a flying waiter/ess! If you think its so troublesome to do visa, jolly well dont apply and dont fly there.
Best is ask US embassy employee come your house and collect. Done liao pass back to you.
Typical useless screw

I find this comment quite childish. This is not a new regulation but one which was in place when you joined SIA.
Your grouse is similar to the person who joined the police force and later argued for higher pay as he is putting his life on the line. Does he expect a police job to be a safe 9 to 5 office job and his firearm is to show off to his friends?
You went into SIA with your eyes closed or open?
