Flight Attendants or Cabin Crew (historically known as stewards/stewardesses or air hosts/hostesses,) are members of an aircrew employed by airlines primarily to ensure the safety but also the comfort of passengers aboard commercial flights as well as on select business jet aircraft.
The role of a flight attendant is not restricted to customer service although it is part of ensuring that passengers have a pleasant journey, flight attendants are also trained to have a pivotal role in ensuring that safety and security regulations are followed as well as being capable of administering first aid, all of which are prioritized above customer service.
Responsibility of Cabin Crew
Air safety is a term encompassing the theory, investigation and categorization of flight failures, and the prevention of such failures through regulation, education, and training. It can also be applied in the context of campaigns that inform the public as to the safety of air travel.
The pre-flight safety demonstration (also known as an in-flight safety demonstration, safety instructions, or simply the safety video) is a detailed explanation given before takeoff to airline passengers about the safety features of a commercial aircraft.
