detailing his experience

Following the massive attention the TikTok video had garnered, Izz detailed the unexpected incident in an interview with mStar.

The 21-year-old works part-time as a banquet server at the Concorde Hotel in Shah Alam since 2019 to earn some extra money.

“On June 26, I did my job as usual. At that time, one of AirAsia’s bosses, Suhaila Hassan (Group Head Flight Attendant), approached me and asked me about my background“, shared Izz.

“All of a sudden she offered me a cabin crew position with the airline, but I don’t have enough qualifications to earn a place in the company.”

Izz said he does not have a Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) certificatewhich is considered one of the basic requirements for applying for a cabin crew job.


He explained that he used to study in a ‘tahfiz’ school in Kedah, and at the age of 16, his mother sent him to study in Yemen until 2019.

“But the lady still insisted that I become a steward. She said she would provide me with guidance and training. I have to start at the bottom, and I also have to learn English, in addition to a few other requirements.

“I consider this offer as a new challenge for me. I’m so thankful because not everyone has that opportunity. We must be nice to everyone, even outside working hours. I didn’t expect the current job I’m doing right now to help me get another better job opportunity,” he added.
