Life as a Cathay Pacific Cabin Crew - Singapore base ( Including full salary details)‏

After passing your interviews you will be asked to go for their medical which is very very strict. There will be urine test, blood test and even a drug test. Once you pass the medical they will fly you and your whole batch to Hong Kong for training. Training lasts for 7 weeks, 6 days a week. You are paid SGD$1600 (before CPF) during your training. 
It is enough to cover food and other daily expenses if you lead a normal life in Hong Kong (eg. no shopping, simple meals etc). You will share the hotel room with another batchmate and the hotel is right next to Cathay City (which is where the training is taken place). It only takes literally 1min for you to walk to Cathay City from the hotel as they are connected. Good for rainy and typhoon days. Although it is good for you to understand and speak cantonese, it is not necessary as all classes are taught in English.

Once you start flying your basic pay is SGD$1350 + SGD$22/hour for flying hours. You ONLY fly to Hong Kong. Some flights are direct while some are via Bangkok (but we stay in the aircraft and don't get to go out during transit). All flights are overnight flights which means you will always get one night in HK, no turnarounds. 
Allowance is collected in cash once you arrive at the hotel in HK dollar (the same hotel as your training). This time you get one room to yourself. On average you get about 75hr to 85hr flying hours per month and your allowance is around SGD700 to SGD900 depending on flights. You are entitled to 5 swaps a month to give away flights or to take in more flights. 
So how much you earn depends on how hardworking you are. If your flying hour is around 75hr you get about 13 days off a month in Singapore. So 75hr x SGD$22 + SGD$1350 = SGD$3000 (before CPF). If you include all the allowance you collected and convert it back to SGD you get close to 4K a month (before CPF), but your allowance is not subjected to CPF of course.

Now let's talk about the culture in Cathay. When you fly it is usually 4 to 5 sin base crews and the rest are all hkg base crews on one flight. It is generally a friendly environment to work in. Most of the people are nice and friendly but of course there are still a few nasty ones around. If you can speak and understand cantonese it is very easy for you to make friends and work with the hkg base crew. 
If you don't it might be a bit hard to communicate as some hkg base crews are so used to speaking in cantonese sometimes they forget that you don't understand. Seniority plays a big part but it is no longer like the older days. You just have to be sensitive and have high EQ which I think is quite standard across all airlines.

You have 2 FOC tix per year and the rest you can purchase at 90% off normal tix prices (even for biz class you only need to pay 10% of the original tix price). This benefit extends to 2 of your family members and your husband (if you are not married you can nominate 1 travel companion to enjoy the discount).

It is a very routine work as you are never away for more than 2 days, and it pays fairly well compared to some other airlines. The downside is you literally get paid to serve. You don't get to see world while you work. If you want to be home often and you prefer routine work I'd say it is quite a perfect job for you. You can still travel and see the world during your leave or off days with your loved ones.

Air Asia cabin crew interview process and stages - ( Updated Version - 2014 )

Hey guys, I am going to write about my experience regarding the Air Asia interview for cabin crew on June 2014. I would like to start by giving a brief background about myself.

As cliché as it may sound, I always wanted to become an air stewardess since young. I don’t know why but I have a thing for flying! Being an air stewardess has always been my dream for 15 years (yes, 15 years!)

 I remember very clearly because one day I was flipping my primary school report card where we had to write our ambition in it. Without fail, standard 1- standard 6, the ambition column was written pramugari  (air stewardess). 

It has never changed after I carried on with my secondary school. So right after my SPM, I told my mom that I wanted achieve my dream to become an air stewardess, but what saddens me was my mom asked me to get a degree first before I can reach for my dream. Hence, here am I 4 years later after my degree, finally able to fulfil a dream of my own.

Moving on, one day when I was browsing FlyGosh, I saw an opportunity which is the Air Asia cabin crew walk in interview in Penang. 

When I saw the post, I have mixed feelings. One hand I was really happy that there was a walk in interview open for everyone, on the other hand, I doubted myself if I have the qualifications to join Air Asia. 

From what I heard from my friends who went to the Air Asia interview before, they have failed a numerous times as Air Asia is kinda picky, and they always look for petite (I have a huge body frame compared to other girls), and good looking (I am just an average looking girl) girls. These are some of the reason and fears that discouraged me to go for the interview. But at last I thought, why not give it a go, I will not lose anything if I really fail the interview. 

Here are the things to you need to prepare for the interview:

SIA aims to cut pilot training time from 3 years to 2

Future Singapore Airlines (SIA) cadet pilots can expect to graduate in two years instead of three, and with skills that should better prepare them for actual flight operations.

The airline has carried out a detailed study on a new multi-crew pilot licence (MPL) programme and is now preparing for a field test.

Unlike the conventional training method, the new teaching programme focuses on simulator experience and multi-crew operations, instead of solo flying.

The plan is for the bulk of the training to be done in Singapore, instead of at SIA's facilities in Australia where cadets currently spend much of their time.
The field test will start soon and involve up to eight new SIA cadets. Those already being trained will not be affected.

SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides told The Straits Times: "As cadets are immersed early on into the airline environment, the training provided is more airline specific, equipping cadets with the relevant skills to operate in the cockpit of a multi-crew airliner."

Currently, cadets who graduate from the flight academy need to be trained in multi-crew cooperation skills before moving to the aircraft they will be flying.

It takes about three years for the full training to be completed.

SIA is proposing a 24-month plan for its new training programme which must first be approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore. A spokesman said it is reviewing details of SIA's trial.

So far, budget carrier Tigerair is the only Singapore airline to have been given the green light to conduct multi-crew pilot licence training.

Approved by the International Civil Aviation Organisation in 2006, the new programme is backed by global carriers represented by the International Air Transport Association.

To the pilots and cabin crews of Malaysia Airlines – John Teo

I woke up this morning, opened my iPad and staring at me was the article reporting that Malaysia Airlines' cabin crew are too shocked and depressed to fly.

This is my letter to all Malaysia Airlines' pilots and cabin crews; and indeed all pilots and cabin crews of the world's airlines, for the tragedies of MH370 and MH17 not only affected the crews and captains of Malaysia Airlines, but the airlines of the world and we as the passengers are equally shocked and depressed too.

These two unprecedented tragedies affect the way we think about air travel; that air travel has been a second nature to most of us, that safety was mostly never on our minds as we booked our tickets – has now been replaced by fear and doubt and second thoughts as to the need for us to fly.

I can only imagine it's even worse for the pilots and cabin crews, as having the intrinsic knowledge of what possible mishaps that could happen in the air, which makes it more worrying and fearsome thus amplifying the realms of what is beyond our control.

Akin to a doctor who knows all the possible complications of a surgery, which at many times are more fearful of the surgery than the patients themselves.

It is with this realisation in mind that I salute all the pilots and cabin crews of Malaysia Airlines, and personnels of other airlines for having the courage, strength and the conviction to go on and do the job they do best, and to allow and enable us, the passengers to fly wherever we need to be, for they realised too, that their jobs is one of the most important jobs in the world.

It is because of pilots and cabin crews like you who allow leading experts of the world in many fields to meet at conferences and meetings to make the world a safer and healthier place to live.

It is also because of you, that many lives are saved all over the world by allowing many advances in the field of medicine and other fields to be presented and shared and thus improving the lives of many people in the world, people that you may never meet and may never know and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts from the citizens of the world.

It is because of you that businesses flourish and economies improve and it is because of you that families are united and friendships are established and many important moments of people’s lives happened.

Never waver in the fact that you are not significant neither important and indeed without the pilots and cabin crews of Malaysia Airlines and of the world's airlines, the world would grind to a devastating stop.

We thank you for allowing all the wonders of this world to happen, allowing all of us to have the lives we have now and allowing all of us to undeservedly at times, experience the beauty of what life has to offer to each of us.

Let me assure you that these tragedies not only affect all of you, but equally affect all of us Malaysians, and the citizens of this world and we share the fear, the grief,  the doubt, the denial at times, but we also believe in the unique strength of the human spirits to overcome all adversities in life, and we stand with you, as you lead us to the challenges of this world when you welcome us on board and soar to the sky with full of courage, conviction and strength.

Top 5 deadliest attacks on commercial airliners

LONDON (Reuters) - A Malaysian airliner was brought down over eastern Ukraine on Thursday, killing all 295 people aboard and sharply raising the stakes in a conflict between Kiev and pro-Moscow rebels in which Russia and the West back opposing sides.

If confirmed as having been downed by missile fire, the attack will be the deadliest incident of a commercial passenger plane being shot down since the 1960s. 

Since 1967 more than 700 people have been killed in 19 separate incidents involving live-fire attacks, according to UK-based aviation consultancy Flightglobal Ascend which keeps a detailed database of aircraft accidents.

The most recent attack was in January 1999 when a Lockheed Hercules plane operated by TransAfrik was reportedly shot down near Bailundo in Angola, killing all nine passengers and crew on board.
Following is a list of the five deadliest incidents: 

IRAN AIR, 1988

En route from Bandar Abbas to Dubai, Iran Air flight 655 was shot down by a U.S. warship off the coast of Iran, killing all 290 onboard. The U.S. Navy said it had mistaken the Airbus A300 for a hostile Iranian Air Force F-14 fighter jet. 


A Korean Air Boeing 747 was intercepted and forced down by Soviet fighters after straying into Soviet airspace on a flight from Anchorage, Alaska, to Seoul in South Korea. All 289 passengers and crew were killed.

Malaysia Airlines passenger plane 'shot down' in Ukraine crash

Follow me on Twitter at Flygosh@Twitter
A Malaysian passenger plane with 295 people on board has been shot down as it flew above eastern Ukraine, according to aviation sources.

The plane, which is believed to have been flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was travelling at an altitude of 10km (6.2 miles) when it was shot down, Russia's Inferfax reported.

The aircraft, reportedly a Boeing 777, was brought down by a ground-to-air missile, an adviser to the Ukrainian interior ministry quoted by the news agency said.

A spokesman for Malaysian Airlines confirmed it had lost contact with flight MH17, which departed from Amsterdam at 12.14am local time.

The flight disappeared from radar as it flew over Ukrainian airspace, he said.

Sky's Katie Stallard, in Moscow, said media reports suggest the plane came down in an area where there has been recent heavy fighting amid continuing tensions between Russia and Ukraine.

Video apparently filmed in the area, which Sky News has not been able to independently verify, shows plumes of thick, black smoke rising high into the air.

Airbus launches the A330neo

Following a decision by the Board of Directors of the Group, Airbus has launched the A330-800neo and A330-900neo, two new members of its Widebody Family, which will incorporate latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, aerodynamic enhancements and new cabin features. 

Benefitting from the unbeatable economics, versatility and high reliability of the A330, the A330neo reduces fuel consumption by 14% per seat, making it the most cost efficient, medium range 

Widebody aircraft on the market. In addition to greater fuel savings, A330neo operators will benefit from a range increase of up to 400 nautical miles and all the operational commonality advantages of the Airbus Family. Deliveries of the A330neo will start in Q4 2017. 

“The A330 is a very important margin contributor for our Group. It’s also one of the most reliable and efficient commercial aircraft ever. Customers love it. With our decision to re-engine the plane, we will keep the A330 flying high for many more years to come. The development costs for the A330neo will be incurred from 2015 to 2017 with an impact of around -70 basis points on Airbus Group’s 2015 Return on Sales target. However, we have a very good business case and the A330neo, once in service, will continue to significantly contribute to our group’s earnings,” said Tom Enders, CEO of Airbus Group.

“The A330neo is the logical evolution of our reliable and versatile A330 Family. It provides an optimal solution for airlines around the world looking to minimise their fuel and operating costs while offering best-in-class comfort to their passengers,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO. 

“We see strong market potential for the A330neo, and like its market-leading smaller sister, the A320neo, we are confident this new aircraft will be a success in the medium-haul segment. We are again leveraging a proven aircraft with a wide operator base and making it even more efficient with the latest innovations and technology developments.”

In addition to the new Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, the A330neo will feature incremental innovations, including aerodynamic enhancements such as new A350 XWB inspired winglets, an increased wing span and new engine pylons. 

Pilots will benefit from latest generation cockpit systems, and the already very comfortable A330 cabin will be further optimised to offer up to ten additional 18 inch wide seats. Passengers are winners too, as they will be able to enjoy a 21st century on-board experience with for example, fourth generation In Flight Entertainment (3D films), mood-lighting and full connectivity.

The real truth about being a Singapore based Japan Airlines crew ( Including full salary details )

First of all, I would like to thank Andy for publishing this article and give me the opportunity to share my experience. Many of us start with a dream of flying. Compelled with the thought of flying around Japan, many people would eagerly apply for Japan Airlines.  I mean, being Singapore based is a great thing because being based in your home country, you don't suffer from so much home sickness.

Here, I will tell you the truth, the good and bad about being in JAL.

Starting with the first three months of training. You are paid about 4000yen ( 49sgd  ) a day. Of which, every meal which they provide for you, they will deduct 1000yen. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided, so essentially, you earn 1000yen ( 12.25sgd) day! Even if you miss your meals, please note that this amount is non refundable. This is also not optional. So on average, this is how your training is going to be paid

Basic + weekdays + weekend
= 800 + (12.25x5) + (36.75x2)
= 800+ 61.25 + 73.5
= 934

That's being extremely optimistic about no money cut for I don't know what mandatory deductions. The training bus would usually pick us up at 7.30 SHARP ( in Japanese context, on time is late. Please be there 15mins early). And you will return home in the same bus around 8 if you're lucky, with smooth traffic.

After a grueling 7.30am - 8ish pm weekdays for 3 months you finally get your name badge and uniform. Which is a great encouragement after all that stress about remembering exact Japanese-English phrases and in-flight Japanese.

Rayani Air, a new airline base in Melaka plan to start operating using the Boeing 737 to meet the demand for additional, higher-quality passenger service linking Malacca with many popular markets of Peninsular Malaysia, and Sabah and Sarawak.

1) Un-served and under-served routes on which high un-met demandcurrently exists or can be readily developed;  

2) Serving key niche markets where demand is either unmet or poorly served; 

3) Meeting peak traffic demands on certain key regional, seasonal, and variable routes where very high load factors can be predicted despite existing but lower-quality competition or where competition cannot meet the demand 

In addition, Rayani Air is designed around, and operated utilizing, the traditional travel agency to ensure low operating and marketing costs, maximum efficiency indeployment of its resources, and a high level of customer service and convenience.
