I havent a clue what almost all of the 2 character call signs mentioned are.

:shock: :shock: :D :D


SQ = Singapore Airlines
MH = Malaysia Airlines
MI = Silk Air
TG = Thai Airways
TR = Tiger Airlines (Singapore)

Am I the only one who finds it stupid that they would post an ad on an EXPAT forum, and then indicate 'foreigners need not apply'?!?!

Or what is the deal with this 'Airline jobs' thread/page on Singaporeexpats.com?

Ta!.

I think a few folk refer to Singapore Airlines as SQ , but I can safely say I have never heard anyone I know say they are flying any of the others without refering to the actual name of the Airline.

They didn't post an ad to the forum. A link was provided by one of the people wanting to become cabin crew.

I'm not sure what possesses people to clamor for cabin crew positions... long hours, low pay, somebody has to clean the toilets on those long haul flights and it aint the passengers.

All sorts of leads get posted on a frequent basis... content is rarely examined by the OP.

As for SilkAir posting the ad... looking for cheap candidates to fill in for high turnover... and you'll notice you need a full length pic as well... wouldn't want any ugly f*ckers serving you your glass of OJ on the way to KL.

The glamour, the jet set lifestyle, the excitement of international travel, the duty free, chance to score a pilot... :wink:
