SIA TO SERVE FAVOURITE LOCAL DISH ON BOARD, BUT NOT ALL TO ECONOMY CLASS PASSENGERS

It has taken too long, but our national carrier, SIA, is finally serving Singapore's favourite local dishes on board their planes. From July onwards, all SIA flights will have chicken rice and nasi lemak, among other dishes, on their menu. This will be a good way for local Singaporeans to eat a familiar favourite on board, while introducing visitors to Singapore's local dish.

This change in menu is part of SIA's 70th anniversary celebrations, and also to celebrate the Singapore Food Festival, in conjunction with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB). The two dish were chosen in a poll that actually meant something, chosen by SIA's customer base online. However, only passengers in the Suite Class, First Class and Business Class will get to enjoy Chicken Rice, Nasi Lemak, Kway Teow Fishball Soup, Chicken & Prawn Laksa and Peranakan Hokkien Mee. Those in economy class only get to enjoy Char Siew Rice and Fried Carrot Cake.

MILLIONS SPENT TO BRING IN TOURISTS TO SINGAPORE

The Changi Airport Group (CAG), Singapore Airlines (SIA) and the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) will take their partnership to a new level, by jointly investing $33.75 million to promote Singapore as an attractive travel destination. This is the highest-ever amount to invested in promoting Singapore to the world.

Singapore is a small country, we are bounded by a scarcity of land to build all these new theme parks or tourist attractions. We have to pool our resources to ensure that what we have currently still works many more years down the road, and that we keep one step ahead of our competitors.

DISINCENTIVE SCHEME FOR TAKING MCS A VIOLATION OF RIGHTS

Employees have incentive points that are docked when they submit a medical certificate – recorded as casual MC – for common ailments such as cold and cough. Everyone starts with 10 points each year, which are progressively deducted and all lost once 12 casual MCs are accumulated.

SIA REASSURES STAFF ON MC RIGHTS, STAFF STILL UNHAPPY

However, staff were still disappointed in the circular, as they indicated that it is still quite clear that the SIA management sees nothing wrong with the current practice. and there is no mention of a possible review or rethink, which is quite disheartening. Staff also indicated the current system penalises everyone, including those who are genuinely ill. It does not matter how much. The fact that weightage is given to the MC component is taken into account is unfair.
