What are Flight Attendants?

A Flight Attendant used to be called a Steward/Stewardess, or Air Host/Hostess but the term “flight attendant” more accurately describes what they do and is gender neutral.  A Stewardess was the term used when the original flight attendants hired had to be registered nurses.

Flight Attendants do so much more than you think

Many people mistakenly believe flight attendants are mainly on board to serve meals or bring coffee, but the role of a flight attendant is so much more than as a service provider.  First and foremost, the primary role of Flight Attendants is to ensure the safety and security of passengers and crew.

When flight attendants board the aircraft, they have many safety-related duties to attend to, such as checking equipment, and completing the crew safety briefing, which includes emergency evacuation procedures, expected weather conditions, and the length of the flight. As passengers board, flight attendants check boarding passes, answering questions and assist passengers find their seats if needed. They often assist passengers with luggage, and prepare the cabin for take off by ensuring passengers abide by all safety regulations. 

Flight attendants must complete reports such as departure and landing location, meal and beverage inventories, condition of cabin equipment and incidents or problems. Flight attendants also provide in-flight service such as meals and beverages.

In the event of an emergency, flight attendants are responsible for administering first aid or in case of major events, for directing passengers in evacuating the plane.
