Cross Check means basically to go over the cabin to make sure all of the seat backs and tray tables are up, and that the passengers are buckled up, and to make sure all luggage is stowed, and that all electronic items are off. Basically Cross Check is Checking to make sure the plane is ready for takeoff/landing ETC.

I thought cross checking was the call for all flight attendants to man their doors, and make sure that they are properly closed and armed.

I always thought that crosscheck meant that one crewmember checked another crewmember's actions to verify proper placement of controls or whatever. For instance, "Cabin crew arm your doors for departure and crosscheck" would mean that one F/A would arm his or her door, and the opposite F/A across the cabin would check that the door was indeed armed.

Well I thought it meant for each FAto check whether or not the OTHER FA did their job correctly.

You'll hear, "flight attendants arm your doors and cross check" usually checking to make sure doors are armed. ALthough it depends which airline, different airlines use it differently

UHHHHH NOOO!

A cross check is exactly what it says. one person does it and the other cross checks it..

For example flight attendents prepare all doors for departure cross check and all call" The FA verifies the girt bar is in place, and the other one cross checks it... cross checks are used throughout aviation. in the cockpit, the altimiters, radios and other key things are checked and crosschecked... its a method of verifying that key items are done and done properly when running a checklist.... get it right guys...

I think it's a reminder for the passengers to check that they have their rosaries. They're going to need them if the pilots are as ill equipped to define a simple command as the arm-chair flight attendants on this thread are...

DeltaMD11 is correct..

To "Cross Check" is to verify that the emergency exit door is armed/disarmed and your cross check partners (I.E L1 and R1) door is armed/disarmed correctly..

Just to enhance what has been said :-

If 2 crew members are working on opposite doors (L1 and R1), they will BOTH cross to the opposite door and check that their partner has armed/disarmed the door properly - hence Cross check. (Although in realty they will just look across).

Also used in the f/deck too when checking instrument settings and readouts etc. They (for example) use it on take off to verify both ASI's are reading the same speed - One will call out (say for example) "80 Knots", and the other will check his ASI and reply "Cross Check" implying that his too reads 80 Knots.
