    air hostess

    I understand 'air hostess' and 'stewardess'
    are pc words and that 'flight attendant' is
    used now. But was it like this in the past?
    1. air hostess - UK
    2. stewardess - US
    Thank you.

    Yes, we used 'air hostess' in the UK and I gather from watching American films that they used 'stewardess,.

    And if you wanted to be really un-pc, you could use 'trolly dolly'.
