Please read my post again...
..."If Mas777 had quoted the annual report correctly, what MH
said was that they would be recruiting French, German, Afrikaan and Spanish speaking crew..."
I never quoted them as hiring Spanish-speakers from Spain. I agree completely that a Malaysian satisfying the language credentials may well be hired but as stated in my post 'THEORETICALLY' this opens up the idea of Caucasian cabin crew.
I once had a Japanese crew member (and MAS has many) who proudly spoke French on board my flight from London and her badge had the Union Jack, Japanese Flag and the French Tricolor but interestingly no Malaysian flag... so I guess Malay would not be compulsory for foreign cabin crew.
