Hi superpinkystar, yes. i also got the email invitation this afternoon. My slot is on 7th Jan, 9am. Perhaps, we can go together?

As for the others who have also sent in yr application, i guess your email invitations will be coming on the way very soon. Gambatte! :)



heya,
yeap. maybe can meet up. your 1st attempt? this is my 2nd. i failed management round last mth.



Hi superpinkystar,

just curios you mentioned tis is ur 2nd attempt from the last failed attempt during the mgt intv...was wondering did you abide the 6mnths grace before u applied again? Or you just apply again right after the 1st failed attempt?


actually no. i asked my stewardess friends about this thing. there is no such thing. if you are determined. go for it

Yeah I hope I could meet you girls in person and wave hard at you girls. I'm keeping myself positive by telling myself that I haven't gotten the invitation coz I sent my application the later part of the week. Haha! Yeah I hope my thoughts are true.

trish, mind over body. on the faithful day, mingle around with the rest of the girls and engage in conversations. this will distract you from your focus and hopefully, you will find your calmness on the day. it isnt that bad for the 1st round interview with 10 in a room, excluding the 2 interviewers, so basically just give your best shot. tension might be high, but learn to control yourself.

dont prepare too much for the interview. just learn and understand what might be posed to you, and just let your flair bring you through on that day itself.

godspeed.

Singapore Airlines still weighing Boeing, Airbus offers

Postby M » Tue, 27 Dec 2005 10:16 pm

SINGAPORE : Singapore Airlines is still weighing proposals from both US-based Boeing and its European rival Airbus, and no decision on the purchase of new passenger jets is imminent, the carrier's spokesman said Tuesday.

"We are still evaluating proposals from both manufacturers and we are not leaning one way or the other at this stage of the process," Stephen Forshaw, the airline's vice-president of public affairs, told AFP.

Neither has there been any decision on the number of aircraft, he said.

"The decision isn't imminent," Forshaw added.

Boeing shares hit an all-time high Friday after a report that Singapore Airlines was leaning to Boeing over Airbus for a big order of long-range jets.

But the airline, one of Asia's biggest carriers, could still be swayed by price cuts from Airbus, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The deal could involve firm orders for 66 to 80 Boeing jets, unidentified sources told the business newspaper.

"This is one of the last major Asian campaigns to be resolved and Airbus, whose A340 Singapore currently flies, will no doubt be slashing their prices to regain some market share after a triumphant year in the region for Boeing's wide-body offerings," Bank of America Securities analyst Nick Fothergill said.

Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific and Australia's Qantas both recently booked major orders for Boeing jets, after the company won a succession of big orders from China.

As of December 20, Boeing's net orders for 2005 stood at 870 planes, trumping Airbus, which in recent years has overtaken Boeing in numbers of planes delivered to customers.

While its young 90-plane fleet is mostly Boeing, Singapore Airlines will be the first to fly Airbus's new A380 superjumbo.

SIA has ordered 10 A380s with another 15 on option and will be the first airline to take delivery of the double-decker jet in November 2006. The company also operates five Airbus A340s.


Airbus is also counting on orders in Asia, announcing this month its biggest deal yet in China, for 150 mid-range planes worth nearly 10 billion dollars.


An interesting piece of news. More FAs are needed eh? :P

Hey Trish,

pls dont ever tink of backing out!! If you do...tink of those who r waiting badly wanting and waiting to receive the email invites. You must stay focus. Tell you the truth, I do face the same problem...stammering at my words whenever I speak infront of many ppl...its the tension n the feeling of nervousness tat will dampens us down thus we got to fight tat negative vibes n give our best shot!! We have ample time from now to get prepared for ourselves, infact all these while I'v been tinkin all sorts of possible questions tat might be posed to me. So I'm practising...practise n practise.....SInce Trish and julie havin the same time slot...n me staying at Tampines we can meet somewhere to head down the place togeta. Cab sharing?

Hey babes of 0940am~

I've been to the place b4 like 2 yrs ago...its along the upper changi rd...quite near to Tanah Merah. BUt since its in the morn...not wanting to be late I tink the safest is to take a cab frm Tampines cos the bus stop right in-front of the location which is bus no.2 takes a long time to arrive. Trust me~

Congrats Wawa,
Remember to keep your research/homework or whatever you want to call it. Like I said to others - find out all you can about the airline, spend some time at the airport - get to know the layout, talk to the crews, better still go on a short flight. Not saying I know the answers but if you can at least show you are genuinely interested it will help. Try to find some books on social interaction/human behavior; if successful you will have lot of human beings to deal with sometimes a daunting task.


Best Wishes and don't 'put your feet up' just yet.

Plavt.
