Cabin Crew is the obvious choice for me.

I suggest flight attendant is very much an Americanism. I much prefer cabin crew.

I've also heard cabin attendant (a hybrid of the two).

I personally prefer Flight Crew to refer to all onboard airline staff (after all they are the "crew" working the "flight); but, I know a couple of pliots that get a bit upset (putting it mildly) when cabin staff and flight deck staff are referred to with the name.

We had a nice cabin crew, especially one flight attendant.

If its multiple I'll use crew, if its only one the F/A.



Nothing's worse then flying the same registration twice, except flying it 4 times..

I don't really have a preference. I use them both, for example, when I tell people what I do for a living I say I am a Flight Attendant, however, when I make landing announcements, I usually say something to the effect of, On behalf of your Cabin Crew or Inflight Crew... They're not entirely interchangeable, in my mind.

I say cabin crew, but a lot of people I know say Air Hostesses/Stewards. There was story in the MEN, about a cabin attendant who was offended when called an Air Hostess.

Doesn't Steward mean helper or helping for someone, so I guess that term can be used.

The official terms used in my company are,
C/C : Cockpit Crew
C/A : Cabin Attendant

So, not F/A, but C/A instead  Wink

I say "Flight Attendant". I detest "stewardess/steward" with a passion. You find those in a restaurant.
