    It's gender neutral. That is why some prefer it to 'air steward' or 'air hostess'.

    Flight attendant is the only term used in AE; we don't use "air steward" or "air hostess". A flight attendant can be of either sex.

    You will still find some older travelers who refer to a female flight attendant as a "stewardess." I suggest you avoid that term even if you hear people use it.
