Life as an Air Asia crew ( Flight Attendant )




Recently, Air Asia is having so many cabin crew walk in interview as often as twice a month and the reason they are doing so is because they are really short of manpower since the turnover rate and resignation is extremely high.

At the time of me writing this article, I am currently still working with this company and it is going to be my 5th year. 

Why do I say that the turnover rate is high? It is mainly because most of the people who resign felt tired and fatigue being a crew with Air Asia. There are some cases where certain cabin crew resign after only joining the company for a short period of 3 months. After a while, I could see them posting on the social network saying ‘I miss flying’ and started to post pictures of themselves in their uniform (*throwback). 

My advice is, if you are a person who cannot handle fatigue, do not join Air Asia!!! Of course once in a blue moon, you do get consecutive 4/5 days off, fascinating right? And what makes you happy is at the end of the month, you get your salary and you know that your hard work had paid off.

As all of you know that we have just move to KLIA2 and we (staff) have not got a proper parking at the terminal yet and we have to park at LTCP (Long Term Car Park) near KLIA 2 where a shuttle bus will pick us up from there with a frequency of every 15mins. 

Let ‘s say, your sign on (reporting time) is at 0600 and your house is 1 hour away from the airport + 15mins waiting for the shuttle +15minutes from LTCP to KLIA2 + 15mins walk to the office ( you can’t be reaching there at 0600 sharp right?), If you do the math, my calculation is you have to leave your house by 0415. So what time do you need to get up, probably 3am? Depends on how fast you need to get ready ( make up, bath, grooming and etc etc )

If you check your flying roster, your STA (standard time of arrival ) is at 1500, but in your roster it will reflect your sign off time at 1530, why the extra 30minutes you may asked? It is because you need to wait for the passenger to disembark, CLEAN THE AIRCRAFT, walk back to the office for debriefing and get to your transport. You might think that 30mins is enough for all these? My answer is no!!! 

At the end of the day, the fastest record I can achieve is to arrive at my car by 1615.
At 4pm, normally the traffic will start to build up and you may be stuck in a jam. You arrived at home by 1730, get yourself clean up, have dinner, watch tv, relax, and you might want to go to bed early if your reporting time is at 0600 again the next day. 

Bear in mind, the earliest reporting time is 0430 and the minimum time required from the moment you sign off until the next day you sign on is an 11hours gap. I am telling you, the 11hours gap is not sufficient if you are doing long flight all the way down. The scenario I gave above is an ideal scenario, what if there is a flight delay?

What do I mean by long flight or short flight? For us, we have:

The "Dark Side" of being a cabin crew - Part 2

Below are the experiences from one of my reader who is currently flying with a major airline base in asia

The noisy compartment handle continues to make a ruckus as the plane goes through a moderate turbulence. The galley is cold but we are not allowed to switch the chillers off, or put a blanket over us.

My colleagues are talking about something I couldn't understand because although I'm Chinese, I was never interested to learn the language as a kid. So here I am, sitting in the galley, pretending to be busy with my own thing, so much for being an "International Airline"!

Just another 16 hours flight from New York. It was great to have 2 full days in New York, I went to watch some of the latest movies which aren't even out in Asia, yet. Had a delicious meal in Korea Town near my hotel, shopped in Times Square and if it weren't for the rain on my second day in New York, I would've gone for a picnic in Central Park and just enjoy the summer weather.

Qatar Airways cabin crew interview process and stages - ( Experienced Crew Version )





Hello all flying friends. Just recently, I went to the Qatar Airways Experienced Cabin Crew Recruitment at Kuala Lumpur so I am happy to share the process and stages that I have gone through all the way until the final interview stage. 

I am still waiting for the ‘Golden Call’ .This campaign is quite different from the Qatar Airways normal open day because you have to have at least 1 year flying experience with an international airline. The recruiter told us that this campaign is new and just started 8 months ago.


Requirements :-


·       Min 1 year experience with international airlines

·       Min 21 years old

·       Arm reach test 212 cm

·       Fluent in English


1st day CV drop (7th, 8th or 9th  June 2015)

For CV drop you may choose one of the date above. I choose 8 of June as I have a flight the day before. I was expecting a long queue but there are not many people as I would have imagined. I was the first one to arrive at Shangri La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. 

It was suppose to start at 8am and finish by 12 noon, but as they are waiting for the room to be filled, the recruiter told us to wait till 8.30 am. Well, I was feeling so tired and hungry and they eventually start the briefing even though they did not manage to get the room filled up.

After they did the briefing with us, they gave priority to those who have a flight duty later to drop their CV first. During the CV drop you have to give a copy of your passport and a passport size photo (light blue background) as well as your CV. The recruiter will ask questions mainly about your experience in the airline that you are currently with for about 2 minutes or so. 

I got an invitation letter on the spot inviting me for the next assessment day and they gave us the venue and a candidate number. But my friend did not manage to get the letter and the recruiter informed her that she will have to wait for a phone call until around 4pm (unfortunately she did not received any call). 

*tips: smile, shake hands, greet by name and introduce yourself.


2nd day (10th June 2015) Group Discussion, English Test and Arm reach test (212cm)

About You: 

I did my best but where did I go wrong?

First of all, Congratulations to those who have made it. Has been a splendid month since so many of you achieved your dreams in July. Unfortunately there are also a lot of you who did not pass and that is why I am writing this article. I know it must be depressing and you are disappointed especially those who have tried many many times.

With that being said, it’s ok to fail so long you gain experience and learn from your mistakes. Though I am quite lucky getting in in my first attempt, I always believe that in every success, you have to go through failure first to be “wiser”.

When those who fail msg me in FB chat, I am sure you will notice that I will always ask you, where did you go wrong? Which part of the day you think you did good or bad? It is important to identify which mistakes you did and find a solution to it as to not to repeat it again the next round. For example, if the interviewers ask you a question that you are not able to answer, make sure you find out the answer after the interview. Who knows, you are lucky and they may ask you the same question again next time.
