Nope not against the rules to do the french twist, but honestly, I don't know if seniors on board will zap if you do french or not hahaha. :P Anyway I can't do french twist at all lor! Sad. :(

Hehe yingying, for your question on whether FSS use hair nets or not, I suggest next time you take a closer look at their buns to find out lor. ;)
And so my journey begins... :)

Hi. Just like to know if there's any cabin crew who had done lasik - understand that cabin air is quite dry and might aggravate the dry eyes condition that is fairly common after lasik... More so since crew spend so much time on flights?

Appreciate any feedback? Many thanks :)

I don't think the dry eyes will be much of a problem after lasik. In fact I find wearing contact lens for prolong period of time, i.e. more than 8 hours, drier than post lasik. Since you will only experience dry eyes for the first 2 months, after that it shouldn't be a problem at all already.

And yes there are a lot of crew who underwent lasik and are having no problems. Definitely beats contact lenses and the prolong hours of wear, whether on ground or in the dry cabin. (=

purple.sara: The 3 month ban are imposed on those candidates that manage to get into management interview (last round of interview) and was unsuccessful.
Candidates that are rejected at 1-1 interview (3rd round of interview) or before are allowed to attempt again for the next interview without the ban :D

cellyy, it depends on individual. I have dry eyes for the first few months, need to apply eye drop quite often but now I dont need that anymore. Some of my friend never encounter that. The air in the aircraft is very dry..

From what I have read elsewhere and if the stipulation is still current: yes for the first 18 months - a local maybe able to update your further.
