He tells me that while he was there, the cut off age for female cabin crew candidates is 26, unless she has prior experience. Prior experience includes that from another airline, or a mother coming back after giving birth etc. This was the standard practice, even though it's not in black and white.

Many people will probably know someone (maybe an instructor) who knows someone else from another course who was 27 or older and was accepted without prior experience, but let's not go there. Does anyone personally know somebody who has bucked the trend recently?

My fren got in last year, she was 29 then. SIA used to take in 18-25 yrs of age for gerls, and 21-28yrs old for guys (if i'm not wrong). But that's oredi history! I think the bottomline is if u've wht it takes, and u still look good, it's ok. But i'm not too sure abt the qualification part though... Anyone who noes of anybody who got selected, say with 3 O's or sumthing?

Hi M,

Ya...kinda dun think there is such a special "scheme"...just hoping...

Hey ntyj! i agree with you!!! i'll rather feel safer with guys with a stronger or bigger built...

you guys are right...the FS that i see are all kinda "petite" (guy sense), not the hunk hunk macho macho type. haha. wonder who was the one who wanted the FS to be of this certain kind..

Hi M, can I ask you a question? I have passed my final interview but they put my application on pending, the interviewers want me to polish up my pronunciation by taking up the english course, after that submit to them the cert few months later for them to review my application again without going through all the interviews. Can I ask how high is the chance to get in after submitting the english course cert?
