And you are asking me to be sensible?

Possibly you should put those dumbells/barbells down and read a newspaper.


Hehe :twisted:

HI...

I wanna be a flight steward and here to share some info..

Besides SIA, Jetsta Asia employs FLIGHT STEWARDS too..

as now Valuair and JetStar has merged, i think males will be allocated to Jetstar Asia.. Jetstar has more destination and it is more interesting than Valuair or Tiger..

besides local airlines, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Qatar recruit flight stewards too...

I think it is easy to join an airline for guys as the number of applicants are not so high as females...

IS THERE ANY FLIGHT STEWARD HERE??? please tell us your experiences and the interview process such as what they really looking for..


thanks... goodbye

Dream on, mate - as far as I am aware the testing procedures are more strenuous . . . get in line with shreked who will simply flex his biceps to gain admittance.

Unbelieveable, simply unbelievebale. :roll:

You mention elsewhere you have a relative working for this airline and should be only too aware of the requirements. (see my post on page 320 of SIA cabin crew which you could have found yourself)

I think you are going to be very disappointed, airlines favor females as they rarely stay more than a few years thereby reducing the airlines cost in terms of paying a pension upon retirement.

Well you need to keep doing you homeworks. Although JetStar Asia has more destinations than ValuAir and Tiger Airways, as a FA of these budget airlines, you're only doing turn-around flights. Therefore, you won't get to see the country at all. Guess it's doesn't make any difference if you become a FA of any of these 3 airlines. The pay is about the same anyways.

You musn't think that as a guy, it'll be any easy for you to slip through interviews compared to the ladies. Remember that this job is sought after by many all around the world. Even if the male applicants are fewer, the procedure is as stringent as how they select the female applicants.

Depends on world economics: less custom means fewer oppurtunities and vice-a-versa.

As far as I am aware females recieve a gratuity after 5 and 10 years apart from that I would hope there is no difference unless the airline wishes to be described as more sexist than some of us already think.

Possibly doing your job well might have something to do with it. Do you play with dumbells too?
