Incorrect - have a look at the doors on the different types of aircrafts, the layout of the cabin, location of emergency equipment, the additional facilities carried by international aircraft (e.g. gaming system, air to ground satellite link-up etc).





One possible reason might be you have a low certificate(Sorry yeah no offence) or you just think that the work labour is more..


Low certificate? Her certificate will be much the same as anbody else's

If you work on a bigger aircraft the work labour is the SAME my darling..
Because you have 17 more colleauges.....


Not entirely true international routes require staff to be mindful of the culture of the country and the people with whom they are dealing. They also have the inflight entertainment sytem to deal with and 'cook' meals. Senior staff are trained to use a defribulator (hope I spelt that correctly) and use the air-ground satellite system in medical emergencies.

Ehmmm....I was saying that the type of work you do in a smaller aircraft and in a bigger aircraft is DIFFERENT...

Not the doors or the parts of the plane of a smaller aircraft and a bigger aircraft...

Read with understanding....

I was elaborating the part on WORK in the PLANE...
You don't expect me to say that..OK the work the work the work...For so amny times....

Good for you..Very hapy if you're in SIA...
I'll even find a Hunky for you and buy for you lots of Durian flavoured things....


NO no.. wrong info.
I don't want to change to SIA or any other airline yet.
I want to try out this smaller aircraft and to feel it for a year then I'll decide whether I want to make it as a career or not. Cause, even a small aircraft, some of my colleagues could take it. What more a bigger one?

Don't have to find me hunky la... aiyo. you very the over u know. haha.. just kidding[/quote



What does it got to do with small or big aricraft??
Do you know that even if you work in a bigger aircraft you aare still going to do the SAME THING....Not extra work..Nonononononono....

MEGATOP(Boeing-747-400) has a total of 387 seats..
15-17 crew are required for MEGATOP..

Airbus (A380) has a total seating capacity of 555 seats...
According to some people now it's 475..
Ok so here's he catch.If in a samller aircraft there are a total of lets say 180 passengers?
180 seats..So it will take at least 5-7 FA??
What you're saying is that you cannot handle bigger aircraft...Meaning that you're thinking that bigger aircraft you do MORE things??

Smaller aircraft or bigger aicraft nothing is different...
If you say smaller number of crew..Yes that can be accepted.
Are you telling me that new FA's for SIA who do not have a single work experience in small or big aircraft cannot work??
Let me say this again...If SIA newbie stewards/stewardesses can handle the BIG plane,I don't see why you;re so afraid of working in a BIG plane..
One possible reason might be you have a low certificate(Sorry yeah no offence) or you just think that the work labour is more..

If you work on a bigger aircraft the work labour is the SAME my darling..
Because you have 17 more colleauges.....

I hope this gets into your brainy head.... :wink: :wink: :wink:

Don't scold me ok I am just telling you the truth...Ok sweetheart?



Read the words higlighted in blue AGAIN.....
Plavt you broke up the first setence....
And you thought I was talking about the plane... :roll: :roll: :roll:

As I said I was elaborating about the work an FA does...
QM can understand it...I don't see anyone complaining...Only you Plavt.. :(

I am not complaining, you were relating the work an FA does to the type of plane on which they work. I was merely pointing up something you had not considered which is hardly elaborating on the work an FA does is it?

Try thinking what you write before you open your mouth.

Now do you get me?? :cry: :cry: :cry:

Similar yes but not entirely the same that is the why the length of training is different to that of international airlines that's all.

The difference between working on a smaller and bigger aircraft is the volume of passengers. So say,if you have 5 difficult passengers on a small aircraft, you might have more on a bigger aircraft.

There are other differences as well.as well.

Just to clear everyone's mind: yes, i just recently got a place in an international airline [if u want me to disclose, Emirates]. and yes, i want to further my studies. I still haven't decide yet? If i don't wish to continue my career as a FA then I want to further my studies and go to the field I want to pursue. It all depends after a year.

Now, everyone got it? [he he]

That's impossible. Emirates may have a better pay than SIA but the time is not that good. An Emirates flight attendant fly more than an SIA flight attendant. This is what I got from a friend.

Yeah....
Is it because of Emirate's 2nd ranking in Airline Rankings that made the FA's fly more than SIA?

Well SIA is 4th in the List....
