I suppose this is the result of four months of training at the SIA Training Centre in Singapore.

In true airline style.... brace yourself

well, they are known to be very professional at SQ training center... moving video, sure they will become professional attendants, maybe not professional singers  bigthumbsup

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. It would be a struggle to be in that room and keep a straight face.

Also, four months training for the role of cabin crew seems very excessive.

Ow how horrible! Although they are definitely one of the best flying around, I'm speechless right now... Why on earth do they have to sing?! Why!!!
Are there any flight attendants from other airlines who are doing the same thing at their wingsceremony?
I don't think KLM is doing that, but I remembered watching an episode of Airport (BBC) and at the ceremony from Virgin Atlantic, the attendants had to perform a small danceroutine...
(so I'm guessing which is actually worse: to sing or to dance - or both!  Wink )

I attended a friends United Airlines Flight Attendant graduation some years back. One of her classmates sang "I Believe I Can Fly"....then, the entire class chimed in! It was actually pretty nice believe it or not!

But they are seen as some of the best cabin crew around though. I think its good that they get this length of training instead of the usual amount that most airline do, 6 weeks.

Well, sounds like corporate indoctrination gone maybe a bit too far for my comfort... either that, or they fired the singing coordinator the next day.

Now, someone get me a Krisbucket?

your not missing much, just some lousy lyrics and some cabin crew looking like robots.

New recruits in Emirates are required to put on a performance during their graduation ceremony. This can be a song, dance or combination but it is left to the graduating batch to determine.

Im just glad there were no video cameras filming my routine .. at least i hope not!

AA FA's have to write lyrics and sing a medley topped off with "We're American Airlines, Something special in the air!" Kinda humilating but also fun.

Well I am going to have to adopt what probably is the SIA company line in saying that it is a great show and proud moment for the graduate's friends and families. It also instils in them the values of Singapore Airlines Group.

I suppose, "as a unit, allows them to build cameraderie, and crew members feel like they are part of a team, not just a member."*

It also gives me a new idea for my trip report.
