  • I think the death figure has been updated to 2 according to some media, must be from the 7 critically injured. Since most staff are without seat belts, those injured must be them.

    So sorry to hear about this.

    Updated: 6 cabin crew remains to receive medical treatment.

    Nothing unusual!

    This happens on and off.

    SIA deals with it with outstanding professionalism.

    In view of the climate change, similar incidents, some more serious than this, could be expected in the future.

    Question here is ARE WE POLLUTING OUR SKIES BY EXTREME LEVEL$ OF AIR-TRAVEL$,A HUGE PROPORTION OF WHICH ARE UNNECESSARY?
    WHY BLAME SO MANY THINGS INCLUDING THE TINY PLASTIC BAG this sg uncle used to carry my mee-siam-mai-hum?

    NO CARBON EMISSION???

    Blame it on GREED AND LUST.
    Airline$ want more and more profits.
    Young and some not-so-young lust and lust for air-travel.
    All these add up too.

    We need to keep our Blue Skies BLUE AND CLEAN as much as we keep harping about keeping the earth Green and Clean.

    Keep AIR-TRAVEL to optimal by not MAXIMI$ING PROFIT$ AT ALL COSTS!
    If you must $TOP me from using pladtic bag to carry my mee-siam-mai-hum,WHAT ABOUT EXTREME(EXCESSIVE) AIR TRAVELLING THAT CAUSES EXRREME LEVELS OF AIR TURBULENCE?

    Is this the karma for SIA, the greedy Singapore company under Temasek Holdings?

    For those people who do not know, they paid themselves 8 months bonus recently.
    https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/companies-markets/transport-logistics/sia-staff-rewarded-nearly-8-months-bonus-pay-airline-posts-record-s-2-7-billion-profit-fy2024

    and now this tragedy strike.

    Temasek Holdings is a Singaporean state-owned investment company that owns a significant stake in Singapore Airlines (SIA). Temasek Holdings was established to manage Singapore’s state-owned assets, and its portfolio includes investments in a wide range of industries, including aviation. Through its ownership, Temasek plays a key role in the strategic direction and governance of Singapore Airlines.

    The question isn’t there huge amount of money is used to bail out SIA?
    “During the COVID-19 pandemic, Singapore Airlines (SIA) received substantial financial support to help it navigate the severe downturn in air travel. The Singapore government, through Temasek Holdings, orchestrated a significant bailout package for the airline.

    In March 2020, SIA announced a rescue package amounting to SGD 19 billion (approximately USD 13.27 billion at that time).”

    Just use ChatGPT to find out the bailout.

    Question is how much of these so called “bonus” money actually come from bailout tax-payer money?

    You are an idiot.

    Tell me whose fault with the analogy below.

    You and your wife check weather forecast and its tell you the sky is clear and sunny.

    So you took your motor bike and ride with your wife to Bollywood farm.

    When entering Kranji area, it suddenly rains and both of you were drenched.

    You have done your due diligent checking the weather forecast but both of you still get caught in the rain.

    Whose fault ? Please tell the readers here.

    And do not run away from my questions like Goh Meng Seng.

    @sudo
    Agree with you. SIA has also other shareholders so it was unfair to give the COVID bailout as a grant and not a loan. Now the staff are paid 8 months bonus plus the COVID grants and the Public pays the increased GST. The other shareholders will also be getting increased dividends. PAP’s style of governance acceptable to 70% of the population while I, a citizen, am looking at the increased price of roasted chicken in NTUC which has increased from $4.90 to $7.45 and NTUC is supposedly a co-operative. So the way I read it, I am bearing the cost of all the PAP’s actions by the GST increase plus the increase in costs on the ground while the corporates and the govt. officials are smiling to the bank. I have to kick myself daily for having to live with the 70%.

    That $100 billion was anyhow spent. Numerous bosses, big and small, had windfalls going into millions each. Normal citizens got $600.

    OMEN 1505:
    Time for SIA CEO to resign!

    https://gutzy.asia/2024/05/22/singapore-airlines-ceo-apologizes-for-flight-incident-resulting-in-one-death-several-injured/

    You are an idiot. It should be opposition like Big Mouth Goh Meng Seng resign and quit politics completely.

    Big Mouth Goh Meng Seng said: Trust must be based on deeds and actions.

    So the million dollars question is: What has BMGMS done for Singaporeans apart from criticizing our great PAP?

    BMGMS also said this:
    https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/east-asia/some-50-people-protest-in-hong-kong-in-support-of-amos-yee-report
    “I don’t like Amos because he’s rude in the Singapore context. But I have to defend his rights,” he was quoted as saying.

    Did BMGMS fly to UK to defend Palestinian student rights to free speech?
    UK Home Office revokes visa of Palestinian student after protest speech
    https://youtu.be/h2N4Z4UNBH0?si=2HEBQODBMUSGuDQJ

    Did BMGMS practice what he preach or just fooling and lying to the electoral ?

    Breaking news by Sky News: On 26 May 2024, a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Bublin was hit by an air turbulence, resulted in injuries to passengers and crew on board.

    Yeah, very powerful air turbulence do happens, even if the aircraft is flying at stratosphere where the air current is the calmest.

    Right after Pandemic Covid got assigned as ENDEMIC,when mutations still rampant and a Multi-Billion Vaccine cant even do a decent job despite glorified human advancement,the RICH ET POWERFOOL$ spare NO EFFORTS TO MAKE MORE $$$?!

    Suddenly,air-plane$ are OVER-BOOKED,even cheap (economy/budget) airline$ resort to all sorts of ways to increa$e profits by dropping bookings last minute?!
    Meanwhile,ALL THE FOOLS RUSH IN…
    Every TomDickHarry n their puppies cant wait to fly here there ,everywhere inspite of CLIMATE CHANGE WARNINGS!
    They spite the warnings,airline$ and hungry-ghost travellers alike AS IF SUCH EXTREME AIR-TRAVELLING IS NOT ADDING FUEL to CLIMATE DISRUPTION through sudden surge in air pollution.
    But plastic bag is S E R I O U S and must be charged?

    So,you see,it’s all $UBJECTIVE.
    A narter of “personal” opinions ba$ed on the potential to REAP $$$???

    AIR-TRAVEL PATTERN CHANGE IS CONTRIBUTING TO CLIMATE CHANGE.
    With the recalcitrant bad conduct in AIR-TRAVEL$$$ ,this simple sg uncle who walks as cannot EXPEN$IVE PUBLIC TRAN$port,expects MORE TURBULENCE!

    HAPPY TURBULENT FLYING ,if people must insist.
    God bless the good people.

    Where is your Big Mouth Opposition Goh Meng Seng ?

    Big Mouth Goh Meng Seng said: Trust must be based on deeds and actions.

    If what you said is true, why BMGMS dare to sue our great PAP government ?

    Ask your BMGMS to give you $23k per Singaporean.

    Tech: Can you please use general term instead of picking on specific infividual? You don’t need to get personal to get a point across. Thank you.
