I wonder if foreign cadets/second officers/trainee pilots are going to be axed too?

Boh Tong said...

All of the above will be axed :(

Anonymous said...

Bohtong ,do you happen to know there are total of how many pilots in SIA, MI and SCOOT before the layoff ?

Thanks in advance for answering :)



Boh Tong said...

Sorry I don't know :(

There is some circulation of the segregation of PRs and Singaporeans among the pilot population.

Bohtong, do you have the breakdown of the percentage of Singaporeans and PRs of the IFM, Chief and Leading ranks?

Hi BT, then what about all the cabin crew trainees with SIA? Are they all (even locals) being retrenched or do they still stay with the company?

Anonymous said...

Local trainee Singaporean will not be affected. They still stay.

Bohtong, really appreciate that you had tried answering many of the questions posted by different individuals here.
Thanks again! :)

Next round can retrench those PR Ifm and chief?

BT: You are one of the few who appreciates what I am trying to do.
Some, instead of appreciating my efforts critisized me instead
for not being accurate in my presentation. They do not realised
that I do not speak for SIA and not all I said are correct. However,
I am sure I am 80 to 90% accurate most of the time.
Like to hear more from you again.
Cheers!

As far as I know, all trainees local or otherwise will be released.

Regarding all local trainees, so far all retained till March next year when gov scheme ends.

Also if any trainee have not got the letter for appointment on Monday 24th Sept, you are safe till March. By then it will depend on the Covid-19 situation and SIA will need to evaluate its survivability. Hope vaccine will be available then.

This covid-19 must have resulted in many people coming in to check on the news about SIA retrenchment isn't it?

I find the poster who said that Singaporeans should be sacked highly offensive. May I remind everyone here that SIA is Singaporean and that their loyalty should be first and foremost be towards Singaporean citizens. Yes, SIA employs foreigners but that doesn’t mean, by any stretch of the imagination, that foreigners are in any way superior or should be treated better than locals. The fact that Malaysian Pilots are ahead of Singaporeans due to NS is not lost on anyone. It’s been very unfair towards local Pilots and now the Company should demonstrate its loyalty to its own.

I have also taken some time to peruse this blog and I’m shocked at some of the appalling comments and vitriol shown towards Pilots. If CC don’t like Pilots, or have the decency to speak well of them, they should not be working in the airline industry. Absolutely shameful. There would no no airline if there were no Pilots flying. Please keep that in mind before espousing hateful, jealous nonsense. Your parents did a very poor job.

To Cabin Crew

Last time, before Covid, you look down on friends who have low-paying jobs with little/no travelling whereas you travel by leaps and bounds with alot of money and lust.

Now, the onus on you, CC. Youve to do the ground jobs as well to survive. If you didnt save while flying. too bad.

Worse still, work alongside with those you look down on with low pay and look up to friends you look down upon.

Right Boh Tong?

Because some Singaporean are just so stuck up and feel that this job is an iron rice bowl. The more they should sack these people and strike some fear in Singaporean crew. Those flying for 4 years and below can also all go. Sq don't need so many people here in fact. It's just a matter of time. Come on face the reality stop thinking that it is still a bed or roses here.

Like I said before, guys be nice lah! there are genuine nice Crew, nice Pilots and nice Pax!

Humans tend to have a lasting memory of those rotten apples, but what about those angels that u have forgotten?

Let's also be reminded that every other countries are all protecting their own citizens first. (Pls think about your own country too)


Life is never fair, there are always people better than u, richer than u, smarter then u, physically better looking than u,etc...

Then have u thought of these ... like:

Aren't u happy that u are born physically and mentally abled?

Aren't u happy that u are not born is a 3rd world country?

Aren't u happy that u had/still with a prestigious company called SIA?

Appreciating and being contented with what u have, is the way to stay happy.


Losing a job is not the end of the world, there are jobs out there, it is a matter of are u willing to put down your pride and accept a lesser pay.

In dire times like this, think about your family, think about those who care about you? Stop procrastinating and blaming others, u have to pull yourself together and do what u can do!

Let us all strive to be a happier person and thanks for reading :)

I certainly hope there will be another retrenchment exercise to remove all the unwanted numbers. Each crew removed can save the company few thousand dollar so why not?

Are u a crew? I guess u are. worried of your jobs now? Will u be the next to go? Maybe u will maybe u won't. But looking at how u reply to all this comments I think u won't be valuable as well.

Ya only a lowlife loser would wish this on everyone.
Hey dude you are right. These people are moronic indeed. They are schadenfreude kind of people. Hehe in fact down to the core of a rotten apple. Hehe. Internet troll l suspect. Still lurking around haha.

I think the management should take a look again at their current strength. U think the government fund is still sufficient to substain Sia? I think u go drive grab or bake some cookies like all the crew are doing instead of just camping here and harping on the comments left by any of us. Grow up kid.

You see a blog is only interesting when you have comments good or bad. These are what attract readership and increase the popularity of the blog.
Just like Geylang, u take away the girls and the booze it becomes a boring place,so in retrospect those businesses got to thank the girls there.
As for a blog to gets popular such sparring is recommended. Lol, but it is factual. U would have realized when the 3 trolls were around they apparently have driven away most readers from this blog and it was quiet for quite awhile. Comments basically come from these trolls until Sunnygale came back to the scene and injected some interesting thoughts to this blog. Now with so many comments coming through the blog is suddenly alive again. Hehe.

That's hilarious coming from a poorly spoken "winner" who has nothing better to do than run tech crew down. Was English hard for you at school? You seem to struggle to string a sentence together. Bet the girls are enamoured with your broken English. You're a winner mate. A real winner.

How is this kind of comment acceptable? You may think females are only for one thing, but remember, your mother is a female too. Is this how you were brought up to think of her?

Why are there so many bullies here waiting to see how many people losing their jobs? If you have nothing nice to say, please keep your comments to yourselves at the very least. For some, it is their dream to be a Singapore Girl since young, nothing wrong. For some, it’s their dream to be a cabin crew so that they can travel the world, nothing wrong too, right? So why are everyone here, waiting to see how some people fall? Even using nasties against crews. Like i mentioned, if you have nothing nice to say, please keep the comments to yourselves. If you wanna be a big bully, submit your comments with your actual name and don’t hide behind your phones, thanks!

p/s: Thank you BT for all your effort in writing all these & gathering informations about SIA’s CC.

BOH Tong, you didn’t publish my last comment. But I’ll say it again. Your mother is also a woman and yet you speak like that. Is that what you think of your mother as well?

Well Boh Tong, the above 2 comments like what l have stated, are what attract readers to get on board.
The covid-19 saga presents this golden opportunity, as you can see the sudden surge of comments. At the same time the articles that u post should also be interesting.
Those articles and comments that are supportive during this hard time would be superior to those unkind ones though.
On the other hand unkind one (though should not be extreme, otherwise should be deleted) does spice up this blog and should be entertained.
Anyway most people are nice, at around 80% and the remaining 20% are born of schadenfreude characteristics. They are born like that and cannot changed for the better, eg sex-c or Ah kua. Apparently it is their natural self and they are simply not capable of being nice bec of the evil streak in them. It is genetic.
To the guy, whom u are wishing karma on them, l do understand your situation as you probably have been wronged in your flying days.
And also about the 8 cabin crew who have brought a leading steward departure prematurely from the Airline (guess this ex crew is hoping for karma on them as well), what happened was that you were not "street smart" but you were handling the situation with integrity and on your principle of thing.
What the 8 did was street smart, they were on the side of the crew in the area of welfare but you were not into it.
Although it is sad and unfortunate that u lose your job bec of something so simple (l do feel for u in this aspect), there is one thing u got to realize, u got to handle living in this world in a street smart way my friend.
If u have been street smart, u would still be flying and having a great time enjoying the easiest /ultimate fun, no other job can offer. This is why boh Tong would still want to be a cabin crew again.
So Boh Tong, what increases the popularity of your site is ultimately the interesting comment that readers are hoping to read.
Finally, to the crew, don't get sore after you have been booted out for molesting lah. Still l guess you cannot help it because Nature has created us in such a way that sometimes it is difficult to lay off, hehe. Guess nature has to ensure the human specie don't go extinct so it developed this trait in guys. Just study the animal species, it is the same behavior in their ways.
Thank u for reading if it get posted.
