Yup, you will be asked to do the reach test. The marking is actually very high. I'm standing at 164 cm and i just manage to touch the 214cm marking.

my friend who's standing at 160cm had a hard time trying to reach the marking, well actually there's still about 0.5-1cm gap before she can reach the marking. but the HR personnel close one eyes let her pass lo.. keke.

they are actually very nice people, juz try your best to reach for it lo... JIA YOU!!1
Soaring above all

my friend struggle down ther for 5 mins plus.. and she even took off her coat so that she can reach easier... lolx..

Seriously i think its a little stupid to fly all the way from Dubai to singapore just to choose that pathetic few cabin crew! And besides, its a total waste of money to give them 5 passport photos and what if we cant get in die lah! Waste money! JAL and SQ only requires 2! I've waste of total of 30bucks for 8 passport size photos and 4 pc of head to toe. Not to mention my addtional purchase of coat. Going to cry hard tmr if i cant get in! hahaha

just give it a shot lol tmrw, get get, dun get then forget it...

dun take it to heart, dun waste ya money so much....
for me ill always bring 1 full length photo, 2 passport size tats all...
others they will ask u when u reach a certain stage....

just be positive, be smart and last but not least know what u're talking about. There's some pple who already assured they can get in, end up....
byebye..... so just be urslf, pleasant n relax chill not to be so tense up...

if they think we got what it takes they will take, but if they think we are just wasting our time and need more experience watsoeva shiit let it be...

as long we knw what our motive n wat we gonna pursue in the future.
Being a crew is aint easy job as what i know... its aint glamourous job either..Only tat u get to wrk and fly for free tats all.... the pay wise no comments...., so whoever think they really gonna make it this time all i can say all the best....

ps// whoever will be goin for tmrw interview see ya when u gotta see me

gambate! :wink:
