my fren who's 157, 158 (she's in SIA now). told us that if you wanna go, wear pants so that u can tip toe slightly without being noticed.. but come to tink of it, its quite difficult too.. you might get lucky when you go for the nex walk in!

keep trying and go for it! =)



thanks hun!! lol will keep the pants trick in mind :) but thre isnt a ban period in this case am i right? oh, and yes i sorta "re-queued" i was with my friend and 1st time they took her height as 157.5. i thought it was so wasted because it was just a mere 0.5! and why come all the way and not get the opportunity to even introduce, right? so i told her we'd try one more time and thank god the queue shortened to like, 5 pple? and im glad i made her to cos she got in and passed kebaya+skin check, her 1-on-1 will be on another day though.

Its very fast, 3 sec and you can take the measurement liao with those type of measuring tape.Its weird though but if thats what stopping you and you know you confirm more then 1.58 then you must fight for your rights ya :wink:


No need la cause for me i dont like to fight back wasting of my time further more the girl look younger then me.. i dont think so she knw hw to measure also :cool:


haha.. then dont keep complaining bout you not getting through the height measurement! :lol:


Im not complaining ok cause i see there's alot of peeps in here was saying and im trying to help them and encourage for those peeps... not like u guys always give negative point for them.... which they will think no use for them to retried again.... come on la dont be naive....


haha.. talk about naive.. wonder whose more naive here, talking about "wasting cab fare to the interviews" and trying the "SQ interviews for fun only".. we're jus stating a true picture of wat happens and the inconsistency of the measurement.. unfortunately alot of the ppl here dun try them "for fun only", isnt it good to see the real picture, rather than giving false hopes?


Hey babe i think u dun really understand what im trying to say.... cause u knw what u only see the borderline which to me i mean for some other peeps and try to tell them no need for them to feel overturn just chill.. ya i knw everyone hve that pasion to go thorugh all this... and im here just to cheer them up not by being arrogant with my words and be "naive" cause as what i see for some of you once u get in u feel proud like a peacock come on la.. im not like this kind of people though ya me too have the passion but however i do like them before have low self esteem which lead me to be just a ground staff but till when?? so im here just to tell them no need to feel rejected or what just take it easy when the right time have come then might be ya turn.... understand?? :wink:


people who do get in got in throught a fair share of hard work, just to let you say anyone is proud.. whatever you guys have been thru at the interviews, "people who get in" have gone thru b4 too.. we're here not to show off, and if u look thru the posts in this forum, u'd be able to see "people who get in" comes here to share experiences and encouragements too.. i just think ur contradicting urself all along.. :cool:

1.9cm difference in two taking is too much, usually its only 0.5-1cm thats clearly human fault or you did not adopt the correct posture. Remember we were always told to have our back against the wall, Stomach in chest out and look straight when we take our height during school days? You can cheat abit by looking higher but maybe 0.5cm max. The ban is for those attended the management interviews. As for the 1st round onwards the date between the 2 interviews cannot be too close together, not too sure about this, I read somewhere before here that there are people kana rejected because the 2 dates are too close to each other.

And about the height, they are right to be so particuarly (though it might not be 100% accurate) as alot of safety equipments, safe aid kit and fire-fighting equipments are placed quite high. So they need to make sure they hire staffs with certain height so crew can able to retrieve these equip in case of emergencies.


I know that but this my first time get rejected cause of my height, why i can manage to go for other airline till the final man... further more their criteria is much more higher then SQ lei... i just dont understand .... :-|


"rinnuwatanabe" I guess that will depend on luck due to such inconsistence. I heard of ppl who dun pass the height, but the next time they do. Anyway, being selected, preparation 60% luck 40%.

Dont be demoralise...


i tink the measurement of the criteria of different airlines is different.. some looks for personality, some looks, some attitude.. so i think you really cant compare airlines to airlines.. SQ must have a reason to be one of world's best airline.. definitely something to do with their stringent standards of recruitment..

if you have doubts, like wat abercrombie said, maybe nex time you can bring your own clinical measurin tape to the walk in yourself and you will then get throught the height measurement.. :wink:


And about airline, Alot is about safety. So i guess the height requirements is as important. U can try again and the next time u can stand straighter. Anyway, my height was also measure lower. In STC my height was measured 164. But today, It was measured 162.


yea.. SIA has got the 1.58m requirement instead of reaching 2+metres on tip toes because they have different air craft specifications.. SIA's higher than others i heard..


Did you hear that from me?? Thats true, the compartments now are all higher both in the cabin and Galley even the galley top was higher hahaha it makes you feel kind of shorter now :?


My darling Abercrombie as if i dont knw what the aircraft look alike... i'm wrking with SATS since 2004 till now i knw what the different between the new and old aircraft. Its all about the same... even when im onboard looking for pax for offload do u think all the crew are taller? u knw what to me even with their sandal on to me im much more taller then them ok... only for certain crew la as in leading crew some of them only i get to see much taller then me...


Now I know you works in SATS it makes it easier for me to explain liao. You must have seen before how short some FSS is right, how they struggle to open or close the compartment right, yup with the sandal and even now the court shoe. Tip top also cannot so have to step onto the side step build on the seats just for this purpose hahaha No choice ask for help from other crew walking from one end to the other end fighting with the incoming flow of passenger like a salmon swimming up stream to spawn hahaha lot of time is wasted here plus now you will see 2 salmon swimming upstream back to open or close that compartment. So now the height measurement iis more strict or maybe with the -2cm thing build in. Try visiting the A380 and see how heavy and high the compartment is :shock:[/quote]

Ya i knw that... so i guess its not about the height measurement thing that they think they cant make it all my main topic here is about the "SCALE" i dont think so some of them just wanna go there to take their height and thats all.. Further more they themslf should knw their own height measurement right... That why some of them thought eh how come they cant get in?? thats what make them feel demoralise.....[/quote]

erm in other words people who know they have the required height, but suddenly measured short and found out that they in fact, do not qualify, will feel very demoralised. haha... it's ok! hope that the not-so-tall-people-who-in-fact-meet-the-requirement won't get so unlucky next round! :) good luck!

no worries babe,

the ban period only applies to those who failed at the management round.. now that you know about the inconsistency, you can keep on trying for it cos its really a pity not to pass the height measurement..
