Singapore Airlines

An airlines career has always been hot & glamorous. See Gwyneth Paltrow in the movie A View from the Top. Pilots and cabin crew get to travel all around the world and represent their country and company with grace and hospitality.

We got a chance to talk to Irene Mou, a cabin crew for Singapore Airlines. She shares,

“After a comprehensive almost four-month training course, Singapore Airlines’ cabin crew start by operating on board as Flight Stewardess/ Steward. Their promotion to higher ranks would be dependant on various factors, including good performance and dedication to work. Flight Stewardess/Steward will be promoted to Leading Stewardess/Steward, followed by the rank of Chief Stewardess/Steward and then, In-flight Supervisor.”
