Cabin crew, Que Sera, Sera, whatever will be, will be

I understand that some cabin crew of not only SQ but many airlines are afraid to fly due to the threats of terrorism. Some would avoid flying to places like Brussels, Paris, Istanbul etc.. where there were recent incidences of people getting killed by terrorists. To them, I have this to say: according to the experts the chances of being killed in a terrorist attack is 1 in 20 million. One is more likely to die in a car accident, drowning etc

I believe in fate or destiny. You can't change your destiny because you do not know your destiny. La Fontaine once said : " Our destiny is frequently met in the very paths we take to avoid it ".
So... Que Sera, Sera...whatever will be, will be...the future's not ours to see...

Yes it's pretty easy for you to say
when terrorism wasn't such a
big thing during your time.

This ain't the 90s.

Imagine you were still flying....'d be timid like our SQ shih tzus.

Harsh but true.

I was talking about destiny and not specifically about terrorism.

"Not a big thing during Boh Tong's time???!!!"

Do read up some history on airline and airport related terrorism in the 1970s-1980s.
SQ117 happened when BT was still in service - and it was in the 1990s.

Still not as bad as today,Snowy. Anyway,it's time
for new blood at SIA and for the dinos to go
(you know who you are). Only the young,
bright ones can take SIA forward.

Flying was much more fun 20 yrs ago...
the only terrorists were Jimmy, May,
and some other scs...

SIN-HKG service sequence:
-Coffee/Tea after take off
-Inflight sales

We landed into Kai Tak with no time for
a drink, a pee, and hungry.. ( departure wad 09:00)
trsnsited 1hr 15 mins,
and did the flight back.

Yeah... nowadys, crew rostered for this turnaround will
report sick.. they are not afraid.... but they are afraid
of terrorists?...

I just flew SQ to HKG..
service was just as long winded..(EY)
Drinks on trolley?.. too much fuss..
Just start the brunch service lah..
The offerings on the trolley is limited anyway.
Just add the wines along with coffee/tea when
dispensing trays..

90% pax load were chinese..
ran out of noodles within the first 12 rows..
20 years... and still cant get the menu right.

You're going to fade away SQ.

SQ is out of touch with reality.

You know what the problem was on your HKG flight?

I.You didn't give them any doggie treats;
II.You didn't sing them their favourite tune "Who let the dogs out?";and
III.You didn't bring them to Dogs R' Us for shopping.

Remember this the next time you fly with them.

Still can't get the menu right? Noodles finish?Serious???if the plane is full and mostly chinese pax,shouldnt you be better prepared? I mean most Chinese eat noodles and crew also chinese.

Fly QR.better service,entertainment,contemporary uniform,luxurious airline.crew dun look like scared puppies who can't handle emergency.

Go QR.

Yes, cant get the menu right..
cos they afraid of ang-moh complain:

"I dont eat noodles..!"

So, they have to put a 2nd choice of stupid chipolata
with tomato..

Stupid people in inflight svcs
stupid CCE in crew division who are powerless at menu planning meetings.
( they sit there only becos other dept invited them.. they can actually spend
the time issuing demerit points to crew... more productive)

Heard from who? Ask the person you heard from to update u! I also hear sexy kena sack, I heard tpt asked for sexual favours. Heard er.

Guinea pig lover said...

Sack? Suicide? Anything to do
with sq 368 fire?
Too many complaints over the years.
Now they decided to do something.
Sexual favours?common leh.

Too little too late.The airline will never
regain top spot.

Mid eastern based airlines and red
low cost carrier are miles ahead.

We been relying too much on can only take us
so far.

Must faster bring in ppl with
fresh ideas,preferably local,
not FT.

Learn from PAPsmearers that's why!

Terrorist attacks can happen in any station.
The best way to avoid it is to QUIT flying.
