Salleh,

You might want to read that a little closer;
* Malaysian citizen
* Females who are at least 1.58m; Males who are at least 1.65m in height
* Degree/ Diploma
OR
* At least 2 principal level passes and 2 subsidiary passes in STPM/GCE ‘A’ level or its equivalent
OR
* At least 5 credits in SPM/GCE ‘O’ level and relevant working experience
* For Malaysian qualifications at SPM level, at least 5 credits including a minimum grade of B4 in English and working experience is required.

I think you will find just about any subject matter for a degree will be fine.

Never really understood the requirements for CC to have a degree at certain airlines. Apart from showing an ability to study at a higher level.

Then again, I was up the pointy end, and back in my day, you needed a final year high school subject pass in Chemistry, Physics, and the highest maths. Now, the physics, yeh kind-of maybe understand; the math, sure; but chemistry? That always confused me!

That being said, perhaps those who have difficulty with the understanding the requirements from a website might have difficulty in understanding "Doors Armed and Cross Checked".

That's kind of an essential service - more so than lookin' good (although, alas, it did help!!!)

Anyway - slightly off topic - sorry!

I am not sure about the certain ailrines part but when some airlines recruit in countries not native to the company concerned this is likely amongst other reasons to reduce the number of applicants. For example some of the CC on the Singapore-Japan route are native Japanese, placed permanently on that sector for language and cultural reasons. By the same token some stewardesses are native Taiwanese but there are few vacancies advertised. In addition a high than normal level of language ability is required, not least for the reasons stated in the latter part of your post.

Yeh good point :) Makes sense. I just meant about you know, a Degree in something not relating to language, culture, etc.
