Flap 10,
How nice of you to putt a photo online of an innocent girl without her knowledge...

As I commute often with CX I think the girls do a very good job. Way better than most European airlines and I think more or less on par with the ME carriers.

Firstly I didn't post anything that is not already readily available via a quick Google search.

Secondly you shouldn't criticize by taking the pseudonym of someone that starved his own people to death and glorifying it.

Both your posts #18 and #23 do you no credit. Uncalled for and definitely below the belt.

O.P.

Kim Jong, european ones are non comparable to asian carriers.
BUT
try flying among asian carriers and compare


cx versus East Asian carriers (Japanese, Korean, China ones)
cx versus South East Asian carriers (Singapore, Thai, Malaysian)

And tell me where cx service stand. I could bet my whole farm that all the East and South East carriers have better service than cx. Please go try the experience before you reply.




Guess what comes in similar colour and sizes as ours?
And the colour that means good luck, prosperity, good wealth

Talking about standards,

Quoted:

SINGAPORE AIRLINES cabin crew hiring

I ve had the chance to talk with a few Singapore GIRLS. (Not me friend, this is posted on Flight attendants.org)

They have told me some VERY interesting things!:

1 - You have to be under 25 yo to be invited for the interview

2- You must bring a bathing suit and wear it during one of the interviewing process. You must CATWALK with it in front of a panel of judges

3- They do a grooming inspection during the interview that means, hair, legs, butt, arms, make-up. If you have a scar or a tatoo, you are eliminated automatically. If you are overweight/don t have a what they consider a nice bum and breast, you are out. If you are not pretty enough, you are out.

4- There are height restrictions

After you are hired:

1- You MUST maintain your weight/height proportion as they will not supply you with another uniform for size purposes. Sorry Kitty City, cannot...

2- If you did gain weight, they will ground you and post you to a office position till you lose your weight ( I m not kidding, my hairdresser s sister was for SIN and got grounded once for gaining 5 pounds).


And the winner is...........

What about all the old boilers at QF and AA? Don't they rate a mention? And the Air Koryo photos only shows pigs!
Sorry, Singapore wins hands down, hardly a girl above Size 6 and most of them absolutely stunning, not a 'two man lift' to be seen or a face covered with post menopause facial hair

I recall reading about a interview requiring perfect blondes only. First girl strips off and told to raise her arms high. She was knocked back due black armpit hair. Second applicant failed because she had bleached hair therefore not the perfect blonde. The third blonde passed the close scrutiny only to be knocked back due black pubic hair. She insisted she was indeed a natural blonde all over. The interviewer pointed at her dark pubic hair.

Annoyed at this blatant sexism on the part of the bloke doing the interviews she asked him to place his hand on the table. She took off one of her high heeled shoes and gave one of his fingers an almighty whack with the heel of her shoe.

The bloke rung his hand in pain as the blonde with the dark pubic hair said to him "Now what colour is your finger, Sir?"
"Black now" said the interviewer still in pain.

"And that's with only one bang" said the blonde. She got the job.

1. You can have a conversation with the 'qf old boilers.' And the AA people too.

2.What do you mean by "pigs"?

3. You are obviously a 'singapore person ' reading your comments here. I see in the press that the singaporeans have shown their true colours(pardon the pun) and shown their racist values again. Quote- " white trash " relating to any foreigner who lives in singa taking up locals jobs.

That's right 004, Singapore wins hand down!

One thing I also know is their Singapore girls have to maintain a BMI (body mass index) below 21 or you will be grounded. I was pretty surprised in our hood, we have recruited flocks of severely malnourished primates and those of the opposite extreme end with BMI >50?! That explains why some of our flights are weight limited. Please invest our company resources and money wisely, look at what our 7 week FA training school produced? Fml. Singapore has theirs for 4 months! And they never recruit those with weird crooked teeth

PS: while you need to be under 25 for a Singapore interview, I have the honour (fml again) working with lots of newbies starting off in their prime desperate 30s. No competition, Bye Bye!

And whoever thinks there is an inclination of biasedness, I dare assure you Japanese carriers are almost equally win.

Being a new joiner, you obviously have not heard of "Cathay Club" back in the good old days in Kai Tak. It used to be a requirement for our girls to maintain a certain BMI (or whatever standard they used). If you were assessed to be over-weighted, you would be required to attend the "Cathay Club" (No, I am not talking about the bar where you could get a beer for HK$8 and you paid a monthly membership fee of only $20). I believe that requirement together with the 45 retirement age for female FA were abolished because of the anti-discrimination laws in HK.


Soul Planet, I don't know what personal issue you had with our FA before. No sane people would spend this much time bashing the same group of people. Almost every other post of yours is about how bad our girls are. You are turning into another Toss Parker of this forum. At least Toss' posts were more amusing. Yours sound very bitter and are bordering annoying. Perhaps you should spend more time preparing for your JF/O upgrade rather than wasting your time like that in front of the keyboard?

We may assume the fragrant ladies of Cathay and Dragonair will not be looking to join China Southern...

Our cabin crew wouldn't make it out of the prelims. Rightly or wrongly, we've stopped hiring based in attractiveness.
