Guidelines on Removing Language Qualification
September 25, 2019
JCBA Section 9.G.1.g.
A language qualified Flight Attendant who has been language qualified in accordance with company standards may request removal of her/his language qualification, subject to Company approval."
The need for language qualified Flight Attendants is determined by the company using a number of criteria including the number of international flights the company has scheduled that would require language qualifications, the number of language qualified Flight Attendants and other marketing driven objectives.
Removal of language qualification is determined exclusively by the company because this may affect the company’s ability to provide coverage for certain language qualified positions.
