English[edit]

Noun[edit]

flight attendant (plural flight attendants)

  1. A member of the crew (staff) of an airplane who is responsible for the comfort and safety of its passengers.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The term flight attendant is somewhat less common than the older, gender-specific term stewardess, but is often preferred due to its gender-neutral nature. Another common approach is to treat steward (or, for clarity's sake, a construction such as air steward or flight steward) as a gender-neutral term.
