    flight attendant

    Is it true that 'flight attendant' is a universal term for someone whose job is to serve food and drinks to passengers on a plane in English speaking country.

    in US
    What do you call them if it's a he?
    What do you call them if it's a she?

    in UK
    What do you call them if it's a he?
    What do you call them if it's a she?

    in Canada in ....

    Do you still call them a steward or stewardess or air hostess?

    Thanks

    Re: flight attendant

    In the US, the old term was stewardess and steward. Those terms are NOT used now - it's "flight attendant."


    By the way, they will tell you that their job is first the safety of the passengers and then their comfort - serving food and drinks is not their "job" but a part of their duties in seeing to passenger comfort. They are members of the flight crew, not flying waitresses.
