Airlines managed by Angmo


@luke.tan00 Singapore Airlines management in the 1960s #crewstories #siacrewstories #fyp #fypシ゚viral #singaporeairlines #sia #luketan ♬ original sound - Luke Tan
It was a difficult time during the 1960s when the company was controlled and run by the "Whites". Above video highlight the management of the time I first joined the airline.

CEO SIA salary

 Ceo is paid S$8.1 million for year 2023/2024 which is an increase of 20% over the   previous year. That is a lot of money even after tax. No wonder the EVPs were fighting over the post. But eventually the relatively young Goh Choon Phong got the top job in 2011!

She fought it out in court

 There was a stewardess whose father engaged a lawyer to fight her case when they caught her for shoplifting in Tokyo. The next thing we knew was that she was found guilty and fined! She is now out of job....silly isn't it? Should have negotiated with the store owner and paid them than fight it out in court.

Shop lifting in Japan

 I was told that if you are caught or mistakenly caught shoplifting in Japan don't argue or try to engage a lawyer to fight for you. Simply apologize and pay up for the amount of goods plus a penalty of about 10 times (negotiable)of the value of the stolen goods to the shop and you should get away with it.

SIA offered compensation for SQ 321 paxs

 US$25k for seriously injured paxs, US$10k for less serious and S$1k for all paxs not injured. I believe not all will accept the compensation and will sue SIA for more. 

I remember the children of a couple who died in the SQ006 crash refused the compensation and sued SIA . They were awarded US$15 million. Will the deceased pax (only one who died) family take SIA to court?

QR 017 kena turbulence

 Yesterday Qatar Airways flight QR 017 was hit by a severe turbulence when flying between Doha and Dublin. Six paxs and six cabin crew were injured.

Air turbulence is on the increase due to climate change so I was told. Flying as a crew is no longer fun as one may get seriously hurt due to the ever increasing turbulence. What are your thoughts on this?

Ungrateful staff?

 SIA is so very generous to the staff by giving the highest bonus ever of 7.9 months and yet the staff complained a lot about SIA. Take for example some were not happy because SIA treat its staff to kueh kueh for May Day. The staff gave SIA such lousy ratings as Best Employer, dragging it down to 112 position.

Are the staff ungrateful??

Singapore new Prime MInister

 Mr Lawrence Wong will be our new prime minister from tomorrow onwards. He will take over from PM Lee who will be a senior minister. 

I wonder what is Lawrence like and his policy for Singapore. Will he be able to tackle the high and rising cost of living in SG ? However, there is little change I guess. Well we will just watch how his performance will be in the coming months and years.
