The Australian Flight Attendants' Association was previously known as the Airline Hostesses' Association and changed its name when Qantas, the only international airline operating in Australia at the time, replaced 'Hostesses' with 'Female Flight Service Attendants'. It had an Overseas Branch to represent international cabin crew which operated in parallel to the Australian International Cabin Crew Association which had been renamed from the Flight Stewards' Association. In 1992 the two unions amalgamated to become the Flight Attendants' Association of Australia.
