PIA used to have or still have crrew from Japan, Uzbekistan, Germany, France and apparently even from Africa, I saw one white male working on Philippine Airlines from LGW to Karachi, according to another post Cathay Pacific will be hiring non-Asian's from UK, JAL have some British crew, others?

heard SQ has a policy of singaporeans only.
Sorry, not true. Many Singapore Girls are Malaysian nationals. I'm not sure what MH policy is - I've never once seen non-Malaysian/Singaporean crew member. I suspect MH *might* employ some Japanese or Koreans for certain sectors, so probably that's as far as it goes.
Before 1998, Malaysia Airlines used to have Virgin Atlantic cabin crew (in their own VS uniform) on their KUL-LHR, KUL-SYD and KUL-MEL daily services (many flights were codeshared with them). I flew to MEL in 1995 and there were MH, VS and also Ansett crew onboard. Very international.
