Thanks. :D


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.


My apologies...at the time he was on our flight, Mr Lee KY was SM. He asked crew members if they were Singaporean, as we had a few Malaysians serving on our flight. But thanks all the same for the comments! :D

SM LKY really fly on SIA??
I heard that he only fly on a private plane..

Ryanstarr, did you serve him??

Tell me more, i'm so surprised.. You must feel honoured.



Ah, no lah...didn't serve him. Yes, he flies SQ. Only served Dr Goh Keng Swee once... but oh how I wished it was Michael James Owen of Liverpool Football Club(then) instead! :)

you're paid only the basic pay for the first 4 mths but when u start flying, you'll get allowances (for transport, location (overseas), meals etc)..
