SINGAPORE — National carrier Singapore Airlines (SIA) is asking its cabin crew to go on voluntary no-pay leave (VNPL) for a period of three months starting in September to address a “temporary crew surplus situation”.
 
While the scheme was last rolled out during the global financial crisis in 2009, the flag carrier intends to offer it “from time to time, going forward”  to enable the airline to be “more flexible and nimble in managing crew resources”, an SIA spokesperson told TODAY.
 
SIA employs about 14,800 staff, of which 8,200 are cabin crew.
 
SIA Group, including SIA Engineering, SilkAir, SIA Cargo, Scoot and other subsidiaries, employ about 25,800 people.

Theyre trying skim off senior cabin crews and force progress the lower rank crew and hire more young one to transition in. However many of the seniors still have plenty of years available hence temporary surplus and no pay scheme option offerred. SQ is also adjusting its crew roster to be more efficient and resourceful(same crap already happening in Malaysia) hence lower crew change required per multi pattern on regional shorter routes.
