    I was in Cathay Pacific last year. The air hostess didn't wake me up.

    I remembered years ago I flew business class and had to fill in a sticker on the seat requesting to be woken come meal time.

    Sir, I get the pilot to personally wake you up at meal time ...........stewardess on MC........ and leave the controls to the Kamikaze co-pilot ...........

    They are cutting down air-hostesses.

    They do self-service sushi lunch-box on the plane now. It's under your seat with a pack of Yeo chrysathemum tea.

    I heard an Ang Mo pax said F*** OFF to a steward on a flight when he tried to wake him up for his meal Generally they will try to wake you up genteelly so they won't be ask to F*** OFF and if that does not work they move on. When you wake up just ask them for your meal.

    Sounds like SQ.
    See my WTS items.. :) Any sales is by meet up face to face, payment is cash only.

    Sorry to say, I'm not particularly impressed with her "confession".

    Refer to her earlier post in a now, apparently, abandoned blog:
    http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...&ct=clnk&gl=sg

    So she hated, the job, but missed the destinations (oh wait, only some destinations.....).

    Other crew she worked with was expected to be "nice" to make her day? Passengers (or customers) were supposed to be quiet and not demanding, or risk being labelled "crazy"?

    The job's not all rosy and peachy but her so-called "confession" is just so typical of our "entitled" generation.

    I don't think it is asked too much from co-workers and customers to show some minimum levels of manners, friendly behaviour and courtesy.
    Isn't being judgmental also somewhat typical?
    How about taking her 'confessions' as food for thought to reflect about your own working environment and your own actions? Draw your own conclusions about your work - not her confessions.

    Her blog says:

    "1) I've quit SQ (HURRAY) (FINALLY!!!!!)
    2) Im now married
    3) Im jobless (Well technically I have a job but Im not paid at all *free labour*)
    4) Im living in London now"


    I think she has achieved her ultimate dream just like many Singapore Girls.

    Oh Singapore Airlines - What a great way to fly.

    True.

    However, I'm speaking as someone who was also from "within the industry".

    Naturally, different companies all have their own unique working culture and style. This is no different and it's apparent that it didn't sit well with her.

    Seriously, the only times when crew get "zapped" were when they weren't performing up to par. Time is always a pressure. We wouldn't want to land with trays still uncleared from the cabin. If anyone was slow or not performing to standards, it's only natural to get chided.

    It's also idealistic to want customers to show some levels of maturity, courtesy and respect. It's great when they do but it's also to be expected if they don't.

    It's part and parcel of the service industry and, in the airlines, it's also where expectations are higher. Too bad her expectations and reality met in an ugly and unfavourable manner. Still, no reason to hate on fellow crew or customers whose expectations are different from hers.

    This is a tricky situation. Some people may choose the flight to sleep in between hectic schedule before and after the flight. So if you are in her shoe, either you wake the passenger or not wake, the chance of making the pasenger upset is 50%-50%. Sticker for instruction is a good idea.

    If you inform the staff to "not wake you up during meal-times", they are supposed to stick a "Do Not Disturb" sticker on your chair, above the headrest. Of course, 2 things can happen:
    1. Passenger did not inform crew and got angry when woken up;
    2. Crew forgot to paste the sticker after being informed;
    3. Sticker fell off..........
    4. Naughty kid sitting behind peeled the sticker off to play.....

    No choice. If we don't see a sticker there, we'd automatically wake the pax up. We wouldn't want to risk the pax getting angry for missing a meal.

    I don't think any passenger minds being woken up by such an air hostess:

    A airline industry analyst interviewed on news just now said "if SIA is still thinking that they can still charge a premium for better service, then they better think twice. Over the past few years, their service standards have fallen considerably."
