I read in the Straits Times some time ago they had scrapped it as too many people wanted to use the rostering facility for reasons other than family. That was some time ago so whether they did or not I don't know.

yeahh i read that too, the programme has already been terminated.

but then if you don`t mind the scheduling, then try it out. it doesn`t matter if you`re a mother or not, what matters is if you`re okay with the scheduling, which means spending lots of time away from your kids..

i don`t think so. from what i know, pregnant cabin crew will be grounded and transferred to do admin and ground duties till they are fit to fly again, unless that is if you wanna resign.

This has been mentioned before; according to what I read (can't remember who wrote it), the contract stipulates you must not become pregnant during the first eighteen months of employment. There was also some mention of somebody having to quit on account of failure to adhere to this.

maybe that`s why her friend resigned?

taurus19, did your friend resign or did she just took a break? cos like you said, she`s back flying already.

I think there is one in NP soon...

Btw, do you know when the successful applicants from your school are going for the water confident test?


I've got no idea when they are going for water confidence test :? Sorry.. But I know after the first interview we had last friday, the sia people ask them to wait for their call for the kerbaya testing..


Hi Qinggx,

U mean those whom had handed up their application form through NP have already got notification for the interview already?

Is the interview held in NP?

should be resign from what i know after she knew she is pregnant.

after a year later, she decided to come out and work but the salary she had asked was too low for her den after some time of consideration, she decided to go back and fly again.

anyway she feel tat e salary inside e sq is much more better den outside's pay.

from wat i know she has been flying for months and 1 mro thing if i am not wrong during the lst half year she is not allowed to change e routing until she had serve fully a year or so
