read from recent ST (a few days before 31 dec one), that SIA mentioned that they have more pilots than they are needing now. but definitely will not retrench anyone, be it CC or pilots.

But economic is getting so bad, even if they dont do retrenchments, also will not have as much flights as compared to last blooming years. in other words, wouldnt CCS have lesser flight? esp to far countries which CCs can take in more hours ($$$).

Singapore always claims that they will not get affected or not much affect when all other countries have oready admitted that economy crisis have hit them real hard. When we read newspapers, crisis in huge organisations or countries are in everyday news.

I'm not trying to 'pour cold water' here. I'm just trying to prepare myself and also to share to all CC wanabes that we have to prepare ourself for the worse. It's not pessimistic attitidue. I'm sure at this point of economy crisis time, every job is the same. you never know what will happen :)

Rostered flights are definitely lesser due to the cut of flights. More crews are put on standbys and not getting called up is the norm now. Everyone is on their toe now and you can expect more positive work attitude from everyone, meaning lesser MC etc.

Intake will be low for sure. The company can afford to be more picky so that means only the best of the crop will only be selected or rather the few fortunate ones.

Take it at your stride be it failure or success as every interview builds on your personal experience. :)

Ongoing rumors in the company that everyone is expected to take a minimum 2 weeks no paid leave in 2009. [-o<

I reckon every sector is feeling the pinch. 8-[

Crew on the average are still earning around or even above that magical figure of S$3.5k a month. Do not be disheartened because SIA is a great airline that will still keep recruiting cabin crew. SIA is still short of crew judging by the coming 2 interviews in Singapore (Jan 17) and Kuala Lumpur Malaysia(Feb 22) :D

Don't quite agree with the recent roster published.

My batchboy roster is full of SSS1 so I'm not sure if we are earning that so called magical figure on a monthly basis. :-({|=
