You must mean out of the blue...blue moon means once in a long while, or seldom. Hope you did not speak like that at Management interview. Cause if you did...well, you draw your own conclusions. On board the aircraft, we have had SM Lee and also Coco Lee. So it is imperative that your spoken English is impeccable. :)


Thank you ryanstarr, I have mentioned this a few times not meaning any malice to anyone I might add.

I was once told that politicians in Singapore travel via regular airlines to avoid comments about their spending... I don't know how true this is, however I once went to Hanoi in the same aircraft (SQ) as Mr Goh Chok Tong while he was Prime Minister.

LOL! That's rather embarrassing to know that some people still thinks that Mr Lee Kwan Yew is still the SM in this small island of ours.

Since Singapore is a very small country, politicians can play a part in contributing to its economy, instead of using private planes. Besides, travelling in commercial planes could give them a chance to interact with non-political passengers.

This is the norm for any airlines be it major or regional, Asian or European or American, etc.

[quote="donno"][quote="Best"][quote="Anonymous"]here`s a creepy and a rumour ghost story...did all of u heard about the SQ006 accident at taiwan a few yrs back...here`s the true story...that was nvr reported..


SIA have removed SQ006 permanently from their timetable.
The flight number is now replaced to SQ030.
The return flight of SQ005 now SQ029

From now on, SQ006 is history.
The flight number was change after SIA investigation team and management found something spooky happened on SQ006 final flight.

Believe or not,if u recall,
exactly 1 year ago on the date that SQ006 crashed,
there was a Taiwanese SIA stewardess murdered in a hotel in LA.
The murder suspect was her fellow colleague.
Remember ?
Her naked body was dismembered and hidden in a cupboard.
Do you know that she was wearing red when her body was flown back to Singapore on SQ005 via Taipei and wore red when she was burried.

Her mother wore red too to recieve her body at Changi Airport.
Exactly 1 year (31 October) later on her death anniversary,the plane crashed in Chang Kai Shek Airport.
Coincidentaly, this was also the day the "murderer" steward was released from prison.
The SQ006 TPE-LAX sector was schedule to leave TPE at 10.55pm. As there was an approaching typhoon.

SQ006 captain & flight officers decided to board the plane and depart 15mins earlier. The L1 & L2 door were not closed till the 10.55pm (the original departure time)
Reason being the numbers of pax do not tally with the passenger lists in the economy section.
One of the junior stewardese counted 5 times and adviced her colleague that she cannot tally the pax in the economy section.
Both of them counted the pax again and confirmed on an xtra pax in the cabin.
When they re-counted the pax with the chief stewardese again the number of pax were correct.

Later the junior stewardese informed her chief stewardess that 1 of the lady pax sitting in 40A (in front section of the economy class) was not there and cannot locate her in the lavatory either.
The flight was pushed back as schedule.
The 2 junior stewardess were among the casualties in SQ006 and none of the pax in the front economy section survived the crash. As for the chief stewardess suffered slight injuries as she was sitting in the business class section.
While preparing the flight for LAX in the business class section, one of the male in-flight supervisor who can "see things" happened to see a lady flipping through the pax listing which was placed on one of the list class cabin table.
As there were cleaners in the cabin vacuuming, he did not shout at her but when he make to the 1st class section,there were no sign of this lady.
The male in-flight supervisor was among the survivors unscratched as he was sitting at the back section of the economy cabin.
This story was brought up during investigation interview with the SQ006 crews.
There was suspicision that the murder a year ago could have involved more then 1 person but they were let off.
It was belief that the accomplices could have been in the SQ006.
It was understood that one of the male in-flight steward who died in this crash is a buddy of the murderer.
The flight number was immediately changed after this interview.
Believe it or not ![/quote]

Very Interesting story!!!

[quote="voxvox"][quote="Cheesie"][quote="donno"]oh ya!! forgot!!

do SIA accept students from private school who take private diploma???

or they only want Polytechnic diploma??

If so, what kind of diploma does SIA PREFER???

i noe my questions are stupid to some of u.. but please reply... i really need to noe.. i'm curious...

SOrry.. and thanks..[/quote]

Yep, no worries.. they dun state on the requirment becos were to advoid too many people from coming, you know.. so just go for the interviews... :D[/quote]

[color=orange]Hi,

I am not sure if i am too late to reply on this. From my understanding, the basic requirements they posted previously in the newspaper and website, include a diploma from local polytechnic. This means that private diploma certs are not included. As for their preference for types of dipolma, i guess it doesn't really matter. As long as it is a diploma from local polytechnic in Singapore.

Hope this is useful. :D [/color][/quote]

Hi girls,as I know I saw the lastest SQ website they stated Diploma w/o stating from local polytechnic! Confusing
