thats right, tiger got no layovers, all are turnaround flights.. AOG (aircraft on ground) only happens like what you've mentioned, but hardly..
Salary is low, during my time, basic was $800, not sure if they revise the amount or not.. flight allowance is $12 for flight shorter than 3 hours e.g. bangkok / $20 for flights more than 3 hours e.g. shenzhen
this is base on per sector, which also means, if you have flight to bangkok today, SIN-BKK-SIN, you will get $24 sector allowance, with the commission, depends on how much food / duty free items sold on the flight. Total sales are shared among the crews, each get 3% or 5%, i can't remember though.
For SIN-SZX-SIN, the sector allowance will be $40, and if you have 4 sectors flight like SIN-BKK-SIN, SIN-HKT-SIN, it will be $48 sector allowance.. But, 4 sectors flight can be very tiring.. Take home salary (after CPF deduction), hardly reach 2k for a normal crew..
For the bond, i was recruited under TR, so it was only a year, if i'm not wrong, $4k? But 2 of my friends in Batch 12, they were employed outsource, so they got 3 years bond, $12k or something.. And they got to pay a little upfront just in case you break the bond, there's an amount with them already.
Hope all these helps..
