Has anyone noticed more of late the increase in non-english speaking passengers? Does the inability to follow directions conflict with FAA regs?. Will we eventually be required to give briefings and employ F/As' who are bilingual?

Don't worry yourself over this....most of your seat back emergency cards are in two or more languages....these will suffice.

If you are truly concerned, contact your Chief Pilot or your POI for furthur explanation.
