There are several allowances for CCs: inflight allowance which depends on how long the duty is, night stop allowance which is a fixed sum for every night stayed overseas, and finally meal allowances which vary from country to country (higher standard of living = higher meal allowances). I believe meal allowances are being given out every week, but I could be wrong.
the money is good, but things to consider are:
1) lifestyle changes - may be away during ur birthday, CNY etc.. your body clock gets messed up every few days... some people may miss home a lot initially.
2) it's not all glitzy and glamorous - think washin toilets, unruly/rude passengers, politics
3) possible difficulty in starting a family - can't remember what's the policy on this, but u can imagine the difficulties for pple interested in starting a family. Then again, if you join young, it may not be tt much of a problem.
All that training, all that stressing on excellence, it's for that 1 passenger on board, so if you have a heart for serving, and strongly believe in SIA's vision, then pursue your dream!

was wondering no one ever talks abt the salary paid during and after training. From what I knoe, my frenz who are cabin crews, they were given $1.2k flat during training for diploma grads and $1.5k for degree grads. And also the salary structure is they've been paid thrice a mth. Whoaa!! Never heard of any jobs paying this much. At the same time you're paid allowances to the destination you fly too. Am I right? Any experience cabin crew care to share?
hi wawa..you mentioned you are going bangkok! enjoy!
i heard the allowacnes is measured by long haul and short haul flights..
so what you are saying is right lo..but paid thrice a mth? i aint sure..
