Usually for an airline, the minimum height requirement is 158cm for females, 165cm for males.

'looks is not quite there yet' - what is that supposed to mean?

You know not that pleasant looking. He even had acne scars on his face. I understand that Jet*Asia is a budget airline but shouldn't we maintain the prospects of a Singaporean Airline?

Hahahhaha!

Dear Wannabes,

Aint too sure if you will still be keened in Jet*asia after getting to know their pay and work scope. hahahah!

1st 100hrs, SGD800.
from 101th hour and above, SGD25/hr

So basically if you work like 110hr (which is very very exhausting, considering that 1hr energy in the skies = 4hrs energy on ground)you will get ard SGD1050. After CPF deduction, take home is about SGD800+.


Also, they only fly to nearby destinations, like 1 or 2 hrs away, so you do the maths on the maximum number of hours you can hit. The furthest is only 5hrs away, cos their planes are small and can only carry enough fuel to go 5hrs' destinations. Again, you can calculate how little you can possibly earn. Also, pls bear in mind that all the number of hours you work are bounded by the CAAS laws of cabin crews' minimum rest period, so again, do your maths.

They only take in Singaporeans and Permanent Residents, so if you do not belong to either one, den forget it. Dun waste your time to send your resume to them.

No layovers or nightstops in any other countries, so you can forget about "seeing the world" or putting down "I want to see the world" as part of the reasons to join them in your resume.

They have no demo videos on plane, so be prepared to do life safety demo in front of possibly 180 passengers.

Think again, having to sacrifice all the public holidays with your loved ones and friends, (ie, when they free, you are not free. When you are free, they are not free, very soon, they will just exclude u in all their gatherings/activities, and you will be damn lonely. and I mean seriously DAMN lonely), together with all the health hazards of flying, such as severe varicose veins, trombola, susceptibility to common infectious diseases, etc etc just for a pathetic take home pay of SGD800+ a month.... Not a very good idea indeed...

Anyways, good luck to those who still want to go ahead and think that being a Flight Attendant is a coveted position or career.

Cheers,
an ex flight attendant

Simple; you made a statement but gave no reason for it, why does it 'suck' as you put it?

hi there donno and other readers
,
yes I believe that Darwin will still be a turnaround. Its not exactly a long flight either.

Both Tiger Airways and Jet*Asia operate on a fleet of A320's, which means they cannot fly more than a 5hour radius without stopping for refuel.

Darwin is definitely falls within this 5 hour flight time and yes the aircraft will be refueled but it doesn't mean that the airline has to give you a layover there.

The stipulated CAAS law stated that Flight Attendants cannot operate for more than 10hours at any one time, so basically the airlines will not let you have a layover, because to-and-fro, it still works out to be less than 10 hours and it makes more economical sense to fly the crew back anyway, so why would any cost-sensitive airline/company/businessman (etc) want to do that?

Hope this is helpful.

Dear Madwolfie,

May I know if you have some unaddressed personal issues?

Thank you for your effort in correcting my little typing mistake and I appreciate your "kind and sublimal" efforts in being a good English teacher here.

However, I believe that at this point in time, I'm sorry I do not need your services and if you would like to teach me English, Dutch, Thai, Bahasa Indonesia or Mandarin, may I suggest that I be your teacher instead.

Anyway, have a nice day and may you be able return home by air without running into an air crash.

:)
