B. degree

Hey, I know how important a bachlor degree can be when I intend to get in to major airlines. I hold a French degree( I went to college in france) and I’ll be moving to the US soon.
I want to know if my degree would be recognized and accepted by the major airlines, or do I need an american degree ?

Thank you

Krevis,

If it is the equivalent of a four year degree in the US, then it should be fine. I might recommend that you check with the recruiting departments of a few airlines just to be sure though.

You did not mention your citizenship, but if you want to fly for a US carrier you will need to be either a US citizen or US permanent legal resident. Visas do not work for the airlines.
