The concept has always been Asian hospitality and since it is short haul - they don't really need galley boys - The girls can handle it :P

Either you have misunderstood or your trainer's English is need of urgent remedial action. :( I believe the contract states you may not become pregnant within a certain time frame not you have to wait until you become senior crew. A good number (most that is) never become senior crew so your statement cannot be anything other than false.

By the way this is the wrong thread.

It's true that a FSS can't get pregnant until she have reached a leading ranking. If one still gets pregnant, she would have to resign. If she wants to fly with the same company again, she has to start all over again, which includes training like any other new crew.

You have me a little puzzled here, are we talking about SIA as the OP was?
Secondly when you say a leading rank do you mean that of LSS and above which as I understand is only achieved by a few who remain with the airline for a considerable number of years whereas a good number never rise above the rank of FSS. In recent years I have met two FSS that I remember well one had been with SIA for 5 years and the other 8.

Look forward to hearing your answer.

Yep it's the same. And yes, I do meant LSS for SIA.

Thank you for the information Singaporegrrl, that I was not aware of so in short; if you join SIA you cannot start a family if you one chooses to remain at FSS level. That is an appalling, outdated and discriminatory manner of employment as far as I and many other westerners are concerned. My opinion is employers in Singapore had better learn to start modifying a few things hasta-pronto.

Ashie - I can picture you in a MI or SQ uniform. You could try out for SQ recruitment soon if you have some customer service related experience or the next MI recruitment.

Don't give up!
:D

Good luck!
