SIA Flight Attendant/Cabin Crew Salary and Allowances latest update

Due to the popularity of this topic, I have re-post it here (last posted on 20/1/14). Hope the subject is useful to those who are interested in applying for the cabin crew job with SQ.

  $1,340 - $2,150..Flight steward/stewardess

The commencing salary for Flight Steward/Stewardess with a recognised university degree as determined by the Company shall be $1,490 per month.

 $1,740 - $2,785.....Leading crew

$2,230 - $3,565.....Chief

 $2,580 - $4,135.....Inflight supervisor

Each crew is given $277 a month as transport allowance and $125 a month for uniform laundry. An average of $2,000 in Location Meal Allowance (LMA)and IFA (assuming a crew flies from 70 to 80 hours a month)is paid to each crew per month. For a new crew the staring Basic salary is $1,340. If you were to add up all the allowances and salary of a new cabin crew it comes up to $3,742.
The above does not include bonuses and gratuities.

BT: The salary of $3742 for a new crew is my estimate. The post on 20/1/14 stated the estimate was $4542 but recently the figure has been revised downwards due to lesser LMA payment. The SIN Dollar is now stronger against major currencies and the payment is affected.

Can i check what are the requirement for a air steward for SIA ??As most of the times only female requirement are emphasised. Is wearing spectacles allowed as i do have eye degree? Thanks

Wearing of spectacles is not allowed. Contact lenses are fine.

Any other particular requirement in an air steward that they'll particularly take note on? Other than height and presentability?

Hi BT, I'm looking at the role of air steward. Do I have a chance at passing their medical if I am cleared of everything but I have to use hearing aids which is concealed. Btw I passed their first day already so I'm wondering if they will just stop me later. Thanks!
