We get 8 off days in a month. There is medical benefits but im not sure abt the details. No transport allowances.
My grp has gt 5-6 guys too.. but not all made it. onli 3 made it.. :wink:


Hi guys,
I'm not saying this out of anger. I am just stating my opinion and from my other colleagues who was formerly with Jet star/Valuair.
They told me that you don't only work for Jet star, but you will also work for Valuair [it's a full service airline;but drinks such as soft drinks must be purchase onboard]. That means you have to work for 2 airlines instead of 1. Sometimes, during your stand-by you will have to stand-by at the airport in the office. The ex-crew told me that you might even have to do paper work.
Their pay was cut drastically ever since Jet star and Valuair merged together. That's why alot of crew resigned.

Ps: This is not from my words. All this information I got was being told by my colleague.

ouh!! ard 50hr isit? okaay. hehe i too didnt pay attention, anyway im a 4getful person so i cant remember much. hehe! ok dats kinda nomal for a crew 2 get ard 8 days off. the no transport allowances dat 1 i noe. the medical benefits i think dat 1 must ask them since we r not to sure about it. anyway in my group oni 2 guys make it. :)

ok. so far they did told us dat we haf to werk 4 2 airlines but they didnt say anythiing about having to do paper werk. i dunno anything about werking in an office at all, i guess if werking in jetstar knowing dat u not oni bcum a cabin crew but at the same time u haf 2 do paper work den i haf to rethink about joining dis job. i think we nid to tok to them and see wat they say. haiyaa :???:
