wow wow cool down girl.Abercrombie wrote:That's the problem with the young crew now, too many just there to fly for fun and don't give a damn about their job. No commitment, no respect and no manners. Zero in their work and bad attitude. Report for work, take the pay and gives minimum onboard.

If you have a degree, this job is just for fun. Stay any longer than the bond and you would be wasting your time here.
It looks glamorous and exciting, travelling all around the world, but after a while you realise that most people in the airline are very shallow, superficial.. they bring new meaning to the term "airheads".
So, ladies and gentlemen, especially those of you who have options, consider carefully before you join.
My 2 cents.
You choose to keep or loss your virginity, no body can force you. Beside don't think many are still a virgin when they join. End of the day you are the one in control.
Again you choose how much you want to spend oversea. You can make do with S$500-700/mth on food when you are oversea. Shopping and sightseeing are additional spending which you are in full control of. Its you who choose how to spend your money and not the job that dictates your spending.
I am also very interested in what is the difficulty of being a crew that makes you want to quit a so call $5000- $6000 job (Not use to being around airhead etc...)
Want to promote? Yearly, around 10% of non ranking will get promoted to Leading. 3-4% of Leading to Chief and 2-3% of Chief to Supervisor.
Most people = Airhead.... It means out of about 7000 crew, there are more Airheads then the Smarthead? That will gives a minimum Airhead count at 3501 crew !!! That's a big statement that you are making. You must be a very smart girl, I am sure you can get a more challenging and highly paid job outside. Please move on once your bond finishes (If you are still under bond). You are wasting your time in a job that you have no passion in. Your country needs more smart people like you to contribute in-order to progress further. The Airline will degrade further with crew like you around.
well i know that everything is in our own control but sometimes there's such a thing call peer pressure... or similar to that in every industry. and sometimes we do have a hard time if we dun follow the majority. it would be weird that all your friends are wearing prada and you are not and all of them are out shopping and you are in the hotel right?
giving our best for service is a must i understand, but having a good relationship with our colleagues can be equally important, if not more. i dun wanna be outcasted thats why i ask about the virginity thing and how much we can really save. because to me it's sth really important.
just like in sales team, if you are young and kind-of-pretty sometimes you do get harassment from male clients... it's a reality that not many say but still very true. same as modeling and acting.
there is this hidden rule for every industry, it's unavoidable, and before getting in i would like to know IT, for air stewardess.
dun get angry with harajukugirl, maybe she is really facing a problem here. cool cool
