The future does not look good for cabin crew

SIA has spent S$7.1 billion of the $8.8 billion raised in rights issue. That is a lot of money. The Job Support Scheme or JSS will expire in March 2021 which is a few months from now. If the pandemic does not go away and with the newly mutated coronavirus which is ravaging the West, things do not seems to be fine.
There are currently about 7,000 cabin crew left in SIA. The future does not look bright for them. If the current situation does not improve then cabin crew may face another retrenchment. There are still many foreign crew left in SIA and they are the senior ones which SIA has not let go. Will they be axed too, like those below 2 years service in recent months? It is just a thought on my part.

wont collapse one la. just open mouth, stretch out hands, will receive aid to feed the fat cats.
or dilute the shares and come out with some bonds and derivitives to sell to the gullibles.

Do you mean to say SIA is too big to fall?

Hi Boh Tong

My opinion is that even if Covid-19 didnt happen, CC shouldnt live in a bubble life of flying forever. They should've plan way ahead.

When they are over 35 years old, its gone case unless steward/-ess wants to be taxi driver or other menial jobs they looked down upon.

Worse, if theyve children to feed.

If youre a O-level holder, understandable.

If youre a poly/Uni grad, dont waste your time being a CC. Its a dead end job not a career.

Note to CC:
Never look down on ground jobs for one day they may become your saviour.

If CC wanna leave SIA, leave whilst young before age 30. If not, stay inside airline for the next 20-25 years depending on contract.
