Can anyone tell me abit more about the daily routine of a cabin crew? When we start flying, i mean like how we would know our schedules. Also, do we pay for our accomodation & what's the accomodation like? Do we share rooms? Jus would like to know more about a typical lifestyle and routine of a cabin crew. Pls comment.

Thanks.... :o

Gosh, i can't believe that u have not a single idea about how cabin crew in SIA is like. If u're really so concern about it, then probably u should've done more researches and not let people spoon feed u like tat.

So many people tried so hard, did so much homework and preparation, and would die to join the airline, but ur effort is no where to be seen.
I dun mean to be rude, but please try to read the threads in the forum to find out more about SIA cabin crew... becos ur qns make me totally speechless.

And by the way, SIA doesn't provide u with accomodation...

Chanyl i don't mean to be rude but i must say you sound agressive. I'm glad that you believe in doing your "researches" but you don't seem to understand my quiries. My quiries is NOT regrding the job scope but rather the unwritten things which one would experience in being a cabin crew. I don't have any friends who are currently a cabin crew & hence i turned to this forum for my quiries.

No offence, but if your "research" theory was really that good, then i dun think this forum would have so many pages thus far. I guess we here to see if we can help one another in terms of quiries and moral support. Pls do not reply to quiries that make you speechless in future.

I dun mean to offend and thanks for your reply.

hello Valentin,

i believe your queries are answered in other threads in this forum, perhaps you can try to use the search function? i think Chanyl, and perhaps the other girls in this forum (including myself) all read the 100+++ pages extensively and searched the forums whereas it felt like you were looking for the easy way out by asking. no wrongs or rights using the shortcut except that the few of us who put in the effort will feel that you should put in some work too. no hard feelings ya?

nonetheless, to answer part of your queries, i believe that for Singaporeans, we do not get accommodations in Singapore but of course you'll be accommodated when you have layovers in the country you're flying to; for that i heard it may be twin sharing or individual depending.

you can check out these few threads:

hello foxwish,

all i can say is if you never try, you'll never know. that said, however, you'll still need to brace yourself for the worst possible outcome. i'm hovering around 1.57cm and have been rejected at the door once (height measurement before first interview). went home bawling and tried a year later and never failed the height measurement again. good luck!

Foxwish: The reason why they select girls that are above 158cm is due to the safety reason and upper luggage compartment. It seems the upper luggage compartment is where max height that a 158cm air stewardess can reach. Girls with height below 158cm maybe have problems trying to reach for the upper luggage compartments.

But nonetheless, go give it a try! Wont hurt a bit to try babe! :D

1.58cm is the minimum requirement, sometime girls with 1.56cm does get in depending on luck due to the human factor part (The person who take the measurement) More than that, then the success rate is very very low. Private Diploma is subjected to the approval of SIA and I don't thinkk they take in N Level anymore.The compartment is getting higher and higher in the newer aircraft due to the design to create a more spacious aircraft interior. Even girls with 1.58cm will have problem opening/closing and reaching for items inside the compartment both in the cabin and galley.
