like Austin Powers said (in the scene that was cut):

"Stewardess?....oh is that what they are calling professional sex workers these days?"

Remember when they were called stewardesses? I even heard a story of some older fellow asking for a drink from an "air waitress." Of course now they want to be called flight attendants...which is fine. Although the best one I've heard is "flight cabin specialists"


Just to share another story with you...Indoc at this airline for FA's was four weeks long. The pilots were in class for six weeks. One of the Flight Attendants was heard saying, "I should have stayed the extra two weeks and been a pilot."

Flight cabin specialist....maybe if they stay that extra two weeks...

The Replacements (A great Minneapolis, MN band) had a song called "Waitress in the Sky." Napster it, it's funny. -Mark

This from a Virgin FA 3 weeks ago. BA call VS FA's "Strawberry Tarts" (for those who do not know, the VS uniform is bright red). In return, VS call BA FA's "The Rottweilers" for their attitude!

I prefer to be called a "Cabin Safety Expert"... makes the job sound more important!

LOL, I've never heard alot of these!!!

I decided to make some of my own politically correct terms because I think "political correctness" has gone too far.

How's this....

"Inflight cabin and passenger safety/comfort engineers"

Or for regional airlines.....

"Inflight cookie and beverage dispensal technicians"

What's the politcally correct term for a kid who works the drive-thru at McDonalds? "Drive-thru food service and communication technicians"


:-P
