blackapple, yes i am from jal. but don't ask me to disclose my name. i'm writing on anoymous basis; not looking at leaving my job any time soon.
hi tenshi, knowing japanese language is an advantage. but make sure if you ever get shoot back with a question in japanese, you'll know how to answer. i do think that getting the jlpt cert is more recognizable. if you are deciding on attending classes, choose one that will help you in taking the jlpt exams instead. even if you do not end up in jal, the cert will still go a long way. by the way, during my batch, less than half the girls had knowledge of japanese language.

Just one last thing to add for all hopefuls out there, be really sure this is what you want to do, this is definitely no bed of roses especially when it comes to interpersonal relationship with *cough* colleagues. You will also have to leave your family, friends and SO's for 7-8 days at a stretch regularly and you will find your lives out of synch initially although it does get a little easier to live with it given some time.

I will say its not too late to try even after obtaining your degree, there are girls currently in JAL with degrees too. I would say the age for trainees are more of early 20's (20 to 24) than late teens.
EDIT: I do have to clarify hor... you wont get paid more for your degree though. You can treat your time in JAL as further training.

Only too true when you work erratic shifts, fly through so many different time zones, end up in a country so darn cold you can only want to go home not to mention those days when you are ill. In addition passengers can be a real pain and there is nowadays something of an unpleasant atmosphere at some airports (read that Heathrow). Sad to say so many never listen nor consider.
