Tell it then. It's your personal answer. Many girls who are married with kids went to interview saying they prefer turnarounds so they can come home everyday to see they growing child.

Well like I've mentioned some time ago that I get all my knowledge from RESEARCH. You should do the same if you want this job badly. Information can be from sources of other airlines but experience onboard is almost the same, ie passengers travelling in economy asking for so much as if they fly on business.

Weight is taken during uniform fitting.

Hi Des, Thanks alot =) Btw, are you a FA? Btw, you mentioned cover shoes, do we have to really wear covered shoes or we can wear heels which is not covered. =p


No i'm not from anywhr... ok abt the shoes usally covered with heels lah better rite... read this thread below: jus a little advice don take it to heart taken from one of thread:

Don't ask, when the next interview is. Even flyers like me do not know until the information is posted on the airlines' respective websites.

Don't ask what you should wear. You think this is a professional or a part-time job? If you think it's a professional job, present yourself professionally like wearing a suit and heels (or smart polished shoes for guys) like making a business deal. Well you are the deal that's why you are going all out for this.

Simply don't ask questions that have been asked MANY TIMES or information you can find out on your own by going to the airlines' respective websites. This just show how lazy you are and expected to be spoon fed.

What I used to do before landing a job as a cabin crew is go to every airlines' websites I know to see if they recruit Singaporeans. If you don't know what the website address is, simply go to Yahoo! or Google and search for it. How hard can that be? If you can't see the careers section, just click on every link they have. You might not find it yet but you are seeing a lot of information about the airline and go, "Hmmm I didn't know that!" If you see something like "must be authorized to work in [name of country]" means you won't be able to apply unless you possess a working permit of that country.

I've even randomly Yahoo! and Google on "cabin crew", "flight attendants", flight stewardess", etc, etc just to try my luck if I can find anything. This is called RESEARCH. If you ask me, it's more rewarding to find information on your own then to ask people. Because I really wanted the job so bad, I've read every single page of the SIA Cabin Crew thread. Yes I know it's long but you can make a few minutes reading a few pages each day. Until then you will understand how irritating it is to see the same questions asked 10 times and it's not even half the number of pages yet.

Don't complain on why you didn't get through to the next round of interview. Look back and think what you have done wrong. Even if the next candidate isn't as pretty as you, she might have done or possess something you haven't got which can be critical. Sometimes even the smallest of thing can make or break you. Continue doing you research.

I've mentioned this before that I have been to countless interviews and was on the brim of giving up but because of the knowledge I possessed through all the research I've done, I finally landed a job as cabin crew and have now flown for 2 different airlines. If you ask me, no it wasn't an easy process but the result at the end of it is rewarding.

So my final advice is not to take people's comments negatively but in turn take it as a lesson. If you keep being negative about the slightest comments, you won't stay long if you ever land a job as a cabin crew. Trust me, you'd get harsher comments up there. It's not a glamorous job you know.
