Seems like the middle east is also joining the " pay to fly " scheme. Surprise to see this especially from a 5 star major airline

FYI, u can't take loans against your HDB flat.

Only private properties are allowed

HDB flats can no longer be used as collateral

Singapore is one of the richest country in the world with more millionaires per space than any other country. To the millionaires, this is small change, when they spend millions on cars and property alone.

There are not many rich people in Singapore BUT there are plenty of wealthy people there.

Getting 100 or 200 people to pay USD 155k? piece of cake

1. Pay the flight training out of own pocket.
2. Not 100% guaranteed to be employed.

ST published nonsense about millionaires in Singapore.

It is true that there are rich people in Singaporea but they may not be Singaporeans.

Does any MBA or Univ "guarantee" a job ?

In what way was the training not good? Poor maintenance? Bad scheduling? Lousy instructors?
