Are there ex-crew in MI?
Yes, a bunch of them. My batch alone has 3, there was another batch that has 4 if I'm not mistaken. Be it, budget carriers or international carriers, we have them all.

Are ex-crew only allowed to apply for freelance?
No. An ex-crew have both choices of applying for full-time or freelance positions.

Does an ex-crew have advantage over others?
Although you have the experience, if you don't have the personality the interviwers are looking for, you won't be going through to the next round.

This is just ridiculous! There's no such thing as an ex-crew's previous pay got to do with her not getting into MI. Like I said, there are a bunch of ex-crew who are flying full-time for MI. Alot of ex-crew are mothers. Therefore they would like to join MI because MI only do turnaround flights and that give them the opportunity to go home every single day and spend more time with family, especially children.

What is the pay structure like?
This is a sensitive issue that will only be informed to you once you're successful.

Does marital status effect an applicant's chance?
No. Like I've said, there are many flying mothers in MI. In fact, I have a batchgirl who is a mother and was a police officer (nothing to do with airline), and she was successful all the way.


Please do more research before you share information with others yah. Get your facts right before you post them out.

To all hopefuls, don't think that being a cabin crew is all about the glamour, dragging your cabin bag around and spreading smile all over the airport. This job, no matter what airline you come from, isn't as easy a job as you might think.

Sometimes you may dream for the job but there are crew who quit very early coz they realise that it's not for them. Think about it.

Any other questions?


Good one babe.
Please do explain to them about the environment and the people too.
So that some of them [who isn't in Silkair before, and going for the interview] know what they might be going thru.

By the time you realised the job isn't for you. That's the time you might be bankrupt.

To those who are going for the interview. Please do your research and ask as many questions as you like to the interviewer. Do not be afraid and shy about it.
Good luck everyone. and
WELCOME TO SILKAIR, WHERE THE WORLD UNWINDS

singaporegrrl: Take care babe. Hope to see you soon. And do watch your back 24/7.

Someone who they can doll up and train to be what they like. JUST KIDDING!

They want to hire someone who is well-being, well-spoken and can endure the pressure. Someone who are bubbly and friendly and who loves to smile alot will be an advantage.
Sometimes, IT'S BASICALLY LUCK!

Good luck!!!

LOL ... Don't blame you, going for interviews seems to be my new found career. It seems like only yesterday bout United Airline, then Etihad. Now, i'm waiting THE email from Qatar Airways after the final interview. :shock: Another 10 more days to go ... Either a mail of rejection or a mail of acceptance for medical checks. Then again, what's done is done. Thus, trying to soothe myself down from anticipating too much. HeHeHeHeHe!! Babe, i've added you in MSN liao. CHEERIOS!!

M.Scott Peck once mentioned, if you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.

Only the GOOD feels guilty, if you feel guilty that's a good sign. Apparently not ... #-o
