Ok, so a 29-31 yr old will be overaged!


For a girl..? Mm.. I would think tt as long as a person looks alrite, it should be okay..

They make exceptions every now and then. Say one of the requirements is u gotta hav at least a dip/a level educational qualification, right? Well i hav a friend who got in with just o level and she's been flying for 2 years now. :)

There are times that they take in O level's. Few years back they did lower it back to O Level's then raise to A and Dip again. The educational level changes from time to time depending on the needs of the Airline :wink:

Do your think it will increase my chance in getting the flight stewardess job as i have experience in serving passengers? :?

I am 19 this year and is still studying in polytechnic. I hope to go for the interview the next time when time allows me to.

I've been reading the pages in this topic but there are still a few questions I wish to clarify:

1. Do they look at scars on the legs too?

2. Am I able to hide my scars on my legs from them by wearing pants/jeans for the interview? Will they eventually see my scars and kick me out upon acceptance to my entry?

3. Are all the rounds of interview happen on 1 day itself or it is separated into different days?

4. Some of my friends say that the basic pay isn't estimated $3500 that much. Is it true?

Thanks in advance to those who can help me in this. I am really interested in pursuing Airline services. :)


1. Depends on whether its on your upper or lower leg, and how bad it is. Stocking helps when you wear kebaya.

3. Depends on time and number or interviewees. Usually if you arrive early, you can clear everything in one day, sometimes takes more than 1.

4. Bsic pay isn't fantastic. Depending on your qualification, it will range from 1200-1400. The bulk will be from allowance. And it will be more than 3.5 (so far it has been like that for me, even after cuts, has not been lower than 3.5k)

Thanks for taking time to answer my question :D


SQ seems to be recruiting more of dips and degree holders. Doesnt matter what dip. Job experience more important, and the way you speak and present yourself

That was not the issue, you asked a question which should not even be in your mind if you are about to start training. Don't you think it would make more sense if you sat down and considered your strategy (i.e. how you will go about learning and answering your exams) rather than asking a bunch of random strangers, most of whom are no wiser? From your posts it would seem you are training is in England yet your English is appalling. [-X

They don't unless it is a department based within the UK such as the call-centre but I don't know if that still exist.
