Hey Leina, because asthma is health related. It's important that you declare at the early stage of your medical check-up, for the doctors to review. As it may not only affect your flight duties, it may risk your life if you are found unsuitable.
My friend had asthma, she declared during the medical check-up for Tiger Airways and she's been given a green by the doctors. Now she's happily flying. Don't hide k, let the doctor do the assessment and advice you accordingly.
Unlike high blood pressure, one of my friend was being rejected by Tiger Airways. Coz' he had high blood pressure.
Different stories for different people, you never know. Be truthful about your health k. CHEERS!!
hi. its just that i myself DID declare that i have asthma during the 1st,3rd,5th and 6th interview of SIA and to think they hav 6 rounds of interview. But managing to go thru till the end and after going thru all that and then being given the reason that they cant accept me cos of my medical problem is very heartbreaking even thou i told them dat i had not had any attack since last year.
[but my asthma is very mild. i have been playing sports and representing my school for netball since primary school. and now im 21. and my asthma will only tigger if i indulge myself wif very cold and very very sweet food like ice kachang and chendol.] i din tell the SIA doctor this, MAYBE i sould have emphasis on this huh?
sometime telling the truth doesnt pay, but as dOvee had mention, i noe that they could terminate me just like that if they found out abt my condition.
i was advice by my neighbour who is a senior in SIA to not tell but i went against him thinkin i should tell the truth but then i ended up not getting the job.
its just dat i AM scared that i could get an attack wif the change in climate, (i dun noe cos i hav nvr flown b4) and if i nvr tell them, they would eventualli noe since i hav to take MC rite?
on one hand to tell and risk not getting a job at a prestigious airline and on the other hand dun tell, werk for a few months suddenly my attack came back and get fired..
