Yes... Really sad that this retrenchment had to take place. The only hope now is on the vaccine.

Only Malaysian CC got retrenched? What about the Koreans/Chinese/Thai/Japanese/Taiwanese/Indians?

The company should seriously re-consider their fuel hedging policy. Either do away with it, or on a shorter time frame and lesser quantity.
Be a airline company, focus on being the best and forget about hedging.
So many cases of hedging gone wrong, enough is enough !

Those involved in the retrenchment are Malaysians, Thais,Indians and Indonesians.

how many jobs can be saved from the losses of the fuel hedging?
Someone should raise the question who is involved in the fuel hedging and hold them accountable

BT: I don't have the breakdown but out of the 2,400, 1,000 are cabin crew, 400 are pilots from SQ and the rest (1,000) are pilots from Silkair,Scoot and overseas ground staff.

Just to remind all,Karma is real.This CS RL tried to fix up,by finding fault on takeover flight,where catering was auto catered.Few months later,he collapse on board,brain aneuism or something.We were allowed to visit him in his ward,on seeing him,he was totally no recognition.That was the last I seen him,a vegetable.Another AO and IFM, conspire to fix,on ns sydney.Many years later,was passing the crypt in a church,when say his urn.Moral of these all,do good or else,karma will come,because the kind soul have many prayers in their name.Things will come to a pass,the meek shall inherite the earth.

Schadenfreude and evilness as stated by Sunnygale.
Very true indeed as can be observed by the removal of a number of comments by the administrator.

Nothing interesting you have missed but just some
nasty and unkind comments which Boh Tong had deleted.

It is not hedging that caused SIA to need to retrench staff. SIA have hedged wrongly in the past. It is also not an easy thing to do - predicting future price of fuel. Like gambling. In these difficult times, try to be nice to one another. Karma is not for you to decide. The past will catch up with them sooner or later. Surely.

Oh come on, boh tong. Just leave those comments here and let people speculate. These crews will not learn until a hard lesson is being given to them. Dont have to hide anything here bohtong. let this be a free platform.

You want a thinking Blog it can handle tough question.That is the mark of brillance.This should be the standard,or nursery rythm blog can lose audience.

At the same time internet trolls blog can also lose audiences. Careful don't let them con you.
Somehow when the trolls take over you lose all your audiences and comments. Moderation is still required bec with trolls lurking around people are afraid to put in comment,and you lose audiences. All chase away. Don't be taken in. Deprived trolls from expounding on your blog and creating reduction of readership my friend. Hehe. Sorry that l have to be hard on trolls. I am actually boh Tong campaign manager trying to revive his blog, haha.

It seems,cumulative losses from fuel hedging thru the next five years is suppose to be billions(lose).Those shareholders definately wants those hedger,thrown out of the garden of eden,baby included,maybe bossini also,shorter hedge to see over the fence,not five house years away due to climate change,unknown factors etc.Billions save can do a lot of things,do you think itd valid ?

Depending on the matters said,Lurkers,Lookers will troll thru baits,whether its worthy,truthfull xenographic or simply triggered,to comment.One should stop trying to police blog,this is not 1984 ,and you are not Big brother,you are not Winstin right,thought police NK or Chyna.Use your right before its taken away and nothing left.Man are born free,society jails the body,the mind still free.

Article One of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
In case one's forget your right.Reclaim it back,exercise your free mind be creative,dont let the chain of society,imprison your soul,the mind is forever free,to create solutions for betterment of mankind.Too many chains in use etc NK,Chyna,Russia.Start with yourself,show your free mind and opinions,vow all who read your thoughts,through kindness,leadership and care of your fellow man,who are perpectually locked in social prison.Knock down the wall,one brick at a time.And masked up !A PSA.

Aiya fuel hedging is ok. Guess a better formulation is required now.
China 🇨🇳 apparently is in the process of coming out with a vaccine in Nov. Once it gets distributed to the world and people gets vaccinated, airline travels will shoot up like rocket. There will be no time even to recall the crew back. We can't wait to chiong to fly and be free like a bird.
Everybody will get their jobs back with many more vacancies to spare.
By 2021 Jan, the world should see a good recovery and not by 2024 as IATA claimed.
The trick here is the vaccine and further implementations by the govts of the world to ensure no complacency to eradicate the virus and then it's instant pick up of the world economies. Looking at next year to pick up. Don't worry.

Yup,feeling good too,if vaccine safe and effective.A special tour of Tian Ann Mian,plus Great Wall,after the vaccine deal.Should be much cheaper,with special price for chinese origin paxs.Sign me up,reserve for me now !Will reject Eeydia vaccine,as it involves cow pee and poop.
