The term stewardess is no longer used because in US as it represents the discriminatory way cabin crew were treated in the 60's.

I remember the 737 doors very well, they are very heavy and do not have any power assist !
|Quoting bjorn14 (Reply 55):|
Do other a/c have power assisted doors? Airbus? Embraer? etc?
|Quoting m11stephen (Reply 5):|
I don't know how they do it... 24 minutes is barely enough time to turn a CRJ-200...!
|Quoting m11stephen (Reply 2):|
Hostess? It's 2012 and the correct term is Flight Attendant or Cabin Crew Member...

Jeez, sorry! It's not as if nobody knows what was meant!
|Quoting Crosswind (Reply 53):|
Seems strange that Ryanair continue to use the airstairs, with the additional barriers that need to be fixed/removed they're not quicker than movable stairs, plus the weight of hauling them round must be considerable in terms of fuel, then there's the slip/trip/fall hazard to the crew and passengers using them. easyJet removed the forward airstairs from their 737s long before they were removed from service.

An All Nippon Airways F/A was killed in 1987 when she fell out of a door of a 747, and fell 20 feet to the ground.
|Quoting RyanairGuru (Reply 40):|
Did you read the article?
She didn't simply lean out of the aircraft, the door was practically closed and was then caught by a gust of wind. It flew open and she was dragged out since she was holding the handle.
|Quoting quiet1 (Reply 65):|
Prior to RyanairGuru's comment, I was wondering why nobody commented on her opening an already-closed door. Then after reading his/her comment, I deduce the article has changed at least a couple times.
