I have taken Jal flights before and realized that there is only one chinese speaking flight attendant on board.

Do not know if it is the same for all the Jal flights or not though.

Also, i did not see any other races during the Jal interview except for chinese.

Hello people...

I just caught this japanese serial on crunchyroll.com. Its really quite inspiring! :shock:

If you people have time you can check this tv series out! I really got more motivated to be a cabin crew after watching how this jap girl changed from a rock star to become a JAL flight stewardess! :)

Hope this inspires those whose dreams are fading or to push on those who are aiming to be a cabin crew! :wink:

Enjoy!! :D

even if don't need so many to do the PA, the purpose of having multilingual crew is NOT to make the PA, but to communicate better with passengers in their mother tongue, and you need to be aware that not everyone knows english..

SQGuy wrote:Hi people, Just wanna share my experience after reading some of the posting over here. I'm a junior cabin crew with SQ, been only flying for 1+ years. I can see that there are many questions you guys wanna ask. For once, I was reading this forum a year ago, just like many of you now. If you have any queries about flying life, etc..., you are more than welcome to drop me a PM and I will try my best to answer your question to the best of my knowledge. Yes, I'm not very senior in the company but I'm truly offering my help. Should I'm unable to, I'm sure there are many fellow crews on this forum can. :)


Still offering my help. :)

anyone got the job offer but without taking it? well i get the job offer though.. but after deep consideration i guess i wont take up the offer. Anyone studying in the field of biotech? I need a job!

To those aspire to become air steward/stewardess.. self confidence n positive personality r the key to success.. Tips to get the job is to study the background of the company n understand the job scope of the job. Good luck!
