No i did not, however i overheard some ppl need to do..I overheard it is becoz of their mild scoliosis, i wonder if its really the case..like does it mean without doing a 2nd x-tray means you are good to go for the scoliosis part?

A lot of guys and girls were called back for their mild scoliosis x-Ray, shdn't be a problem for most. Probably just a false alarm (which costs $160!) I was also referred to a cardiac at Mt Eliz just for a blood pressure test, cost me $130, like wth~ anws, it turned out to be a fake scare. So like what our HR people menioned during Pre-Employment Briefing, just "wait for the call to know if you fail."

is the BMI thing a definite issue? I've seen some cabin crew (though i dont remember SIA) being a little overweight, maybe BMI of 26-28

Hmmm sooo low??? 16 ...then you must be very skinny, you need to do some heavy stuff as a Flight Attendent. Do some work out and load up protein to built up muscle, weight and strength :wink:

Once you are in then you can gain weight untill you are being write in to the office. They will then monitor your weight and ground you if necessary. I am sure no one is happy being term as a PPS (Pui Pui Stewardess) so must have self discipline,thought I did saw a few... they look like giant... :shock:
