Is this really necessary? Yes, cabin crew do travel to Paris, London, almost everywhere. But what you people don't know is Singapore airline cabin crew work from the start till the end of the flight. Yes, non stop. When you guys are happily sleeping, resting or watching movie, we are preparing for meal service to serve it to you. When you guys are happily resting, we prepare snacks and drinks for you. For a380 flights, due to the ultra high expectation, we have to work 10 times harder. For a 13 hours flight in a380 flight, other than the 3 hours of crew rest, we have no seats to sit down and rest for a bit. We have to stand for the whole 10 hours walking up and down, preparing meal service, drinks, snacks, answering attendant call button, serving ad hoc requests. Everyone may think we had it easy. But do you know for a overnight flight, having to be awake and continuously work for 10 hours, in order to go out for sightsee, we have to sacrifice our sleep? And fyi, we only have 1.5 days in places like Paris, Europe, UK. For other stations, the maximum we have is 24 hours in the country before taking off.
It is okay if everyone discriminates against us saying we treat Caucasians better. That is because they are willing to start a small talk with us.
It is okay when passengers bully the crew just because they think they paid for our service. But we are not slaves and machines. We are also human being.
All we want is to be appreciated for the things we do and worked hard for.
You think you're the only one who had a hard life? You think we had it easy? Everyone else is!
Why didn't I see people posting things like "omg. How many cabin crew is injured from the turbulent? Hope they are fine." Singapore airlines doesn't care for cabin crew. Public is targeting on cabin crew just because of a post on her reflection of being a ex cabin crew.
All I want to say is, being a cabin crew is no difference from being a guy serving national service. We are uniform group as well. We can't be seen in public. We have strict rules too. We can't take picture in our uniform. We have to constantly apologise for things that we did not do wrong. We have limited rest too. Now tell me how are we different other than our job scope?
Yes. I am a cabin crew from Singapore airlines and I hate to say that cabin crew are always not appreciated. Not from the company, not from the public.
When we felt appreciated, people thinks that we are biased.
Be nice, and we will be nicer to you.
