hmmm... if i'm not wrong, IFS and CTS are two diff person. On every flight, you'll see one IFS. But CTS only comes onboard once a while to check on them during flights.

Futile advice, SIA check your height several times, impressive personality or not requirements are requirements.

Ha ha! Maybe we should Singapore with an old English instrument of torture, its called the rack you would end more than a a cm taller but with a few disadvantages to say the least. :lol:

Seriously though do have a look at Tiger Airways there is at least one girl who hasn't posted on this forum in a long while who wasn't tall enough for SIA but got accepted by Tiger.

I don’t know if they have changed this rule since my time but there are stewardesses who can’t swim! In my time, they gave us a choice of swimming the lap with or without life jackets. The priority is to make sure a candidate will JUMP into water without fear or hesitancy. Even during safety-drill training, everyone MUST wear a life-jacket.



This is not the first time I have seem somebody here contradict themselves anybody care to explain?

Plavt. :???:



Ok. Let me re-explain. :roll:

When I say "can swim" it means swim a lap without drowning.. lol

1. Back in 1994 (my interview), the batch of girls who made it to the swimming round were asked to swim a lap.

2. The interviewers gave us life-jackets and said that “those who are confident to swim the lap WITHOUT the life-jacket may do so”
