see the uniform there.. but according to the website, junior crews are in charcoal grey blazers and the dark blue/black one is for senior crews.. not too sure though! i`ve only seen the black/dark blue ones so far.


Only black. All crews are black unless I'm wrong but doubt so after many rounds at T1. :mad:

i heard from somebody that JAL`s water confidence test is in japan and they will fly you there to do it, is it true?


don`t worry, they will provide life jacket if i`m not wrong. SIA does so i assume JAL does too. :lol: but anyways, just jump! and the rest will take care of itself. :)

lol i just read things from this forum! from other people`s experiences and tips. i can`t swim too, but it`s not a swimming test, just water confidence. they just want to see if you dare to jump without hesitation. i`m sure you can swim backstroke, just kick your legs. when you jump, hold on to your life jacket. hold it when you`re in the water too, just kick and you`ll reach the other side. it`s only about confidence. :)

I don't think it's wise to have that mentality. What about just jump and drown without a lifejacket then? 8-)

Anyway it would be better if you can swim but of course not everyone does. Water confidence test is there for a reason but frankly speaking, this has been a much talked issue and apparently you might even pass when you can't swim as much discussed. :???: :shock: :???: :shock:

i`ve asked, they do provide life jackets for water confidence test. do they do it in japan or singapore? cos i`ve heard that they do it in japan.. i don`t know if they still do though.

Lol, I wasn't referring if life jackets will be provided or not.

Anyway regarding that, I've gotta ask my girl. But I doubt they will fly you there just for water confidence. I know they spent 3 months or something there for training. 8-)

no lar! that`s how backstroke goes.. you should float, even without a life jacket if you just lay on your back.

i didn`t but that`s what people tell me lar! lol

but yeahh, there`s life jacket, nothing to be afraid of. i can swim but i`m not good.. i can only do basic free style.

so all of the training is done in japan and it lasts 3 months? i see! i`ve heard that JAL do they water confidence test just before you start training, in japan. but i don`t know if they still do it now.

ohh well, it`s nothing to be worried about like where and when.. cos you`ll still do it in the end! :lol:

Eh, not sure if it's da entire training or part of it. I can't remember what she has mentioned to me. But I know you will be spending part/all of your training in Narita.

I will probably ask her tomorrow and feedback to you peeps. 8-)
