I have just flown on 2 domestic sectors with TAM. Not a single english
announcement was made, although flights had many foreigners/tourists.
As per cabin-crew on each flight, they had no english speaking flight-attendant. Should, for safety reasons, this not be a minimum requirement?

I may be off here but from what I understood careers that dealt with aviation whether they be foreign or domestic needed to have English as the main or second language of the employees. Can anyone help me out on this?

For those who fly on a regular basis, we are familure with the usual safety features of most aircraft. In the seat pockets there is always information in pictures about exits. If I am not able to understand the language being spoken, then I should take on the responsibility of knowing where exits are. In an emergency, follow those who understand.
