Good question, but I think the rule of thumb is one for every 50 or so.
On a recent AA 757 flight there were 4 or 5 FA's on board. One in FC, and the remainder in steerage, I mean coach. On the smaller 737s (300/500/700) I have seen 3-4. I am sure there is someone out there who knows what the FAA/ JAA/CAA require.

how ya doin... ILUV is correct.. however, in my Airline Employee handbook, the F.A.A minimum staffing requirements for the B-757-200 is 4, and the max jumpseats are 6/5. On the B-767-300 says 6 with the maxjumpseats of 8, and the 767-300ER domestic is 5, with the max # of jumpseats being 11. Hope that helps. And just as somepersonal input, don't ask me why the minimum staffing is less on the ER. Take it easy!

Here in NZ and Australia, There has to be 5-7 Cabin Crew members on Board a 733 aircraft,
744: 18-21 FA's
732: 6 FA's
734: 4-7
735: 3 and upwards
738: 6 Cabin Crew members
742: 17 Cabin Crew
752: 5-6 Bain Crew members
762: 10 Cabin Crew members
763: 11 FA's
772: 15-17 FA's
BAe146: 3-4 FA's
Concorde: 6 Cabin Crew
A320: 5-6 Cabin Crew members
A319: 4 FA's
A332: 9 FA's
A333: 14 FA's
A343: 14 Cabin Crew
MD-11: 11 Cabin Crew
Saab340: 1-2 Cabin Crew

This is reference to how many Jumpseats are on board. The flight can only depart with the least number of FA's on the right.
i.e If oi wrote 9-12, There has to be 9 flight attendants on board in order for the plane to take off.

Hope this helps.
Ny the way i got my info from My sister who works for AirNewZealand.

Cheers

the above info is not correct for US carriers. A 732 MAY have 6 jumpseats, but no way is that the minimum f/a required. I don't think I've ever seen a US domstic 733 with more than 4 f/a. And a 762 does not have a minimum of 10 f/a. sorry.

What amazes me sometimes is the mismatch between the number of flight attendants and the number of passengers. I mean I have been on flights with 150 passengers and the minimum number of flight attendants, and the flights were awful because the poor FAs couldn't keep up with that number of people (Eastern's Air Shuttle on the A300, right after the Pan Am Shuttle had started, and they had to deliver snacks and drinks AND collect fares both during flight.). And also on flights with 10 passengers and 14 flight attendants (a TWA B747 between LAX and BOS, that somehow had made it to the printed timetables, but not into the rez computers, so there were almost no passengers; that was a funny situation, cause I went to the ticket office to buy the ticket..and the sales agent said "no such flight" and I showed it to her in the printed timetable. She said "OK...I will write a ticket...but don't expect there to be a plane at the airport when you get there" LOL).
