    stewart, stuart or what?

    could you please tell me the masculine noun for "hostess"?
    In Italy we say stewart, but it is spelled in different forms, I'd like to know the correct one. Thank you very much!

    Hello Daniela,
    An 'air steward' or just 'steward' with a 'd' not 't'. Stewart /Stuart is a name.

    Well, the masculine noun for "hostess" is "host" - meaning a male person who is responsible for a party or meal. But I don't think that's what you mean.

    The official who welcomes you on board a plane and sees to your needs is - as queenbu said - a steward. The PC term is "cabin staff" (male or female).
