In Englnad we noramlly call the FA's Stewardes'. Is this an insult to them as every time you talk to a pilot the correct me and say Flight Atendant or Cabin Crew. Am I eing rude using that word inthe US? And in Englnad do you call the stewardes' stil or have times moved on?

In the UK too the times have moved on, Iain. The way to refer to them in the UK is Cabin Crew. One big reason for this is that it isn't at all a strickt female job anymore.

Yep, in Russia we have that terms too: steward and stewardess ("stewardessa" in russian). However, during my four years in UK I have never heard neither of those terms used here, but Cabin Crew instead.

So, just prior to take off a crew manager announces: "Cabin Crew seats for take off please" or something like that...
