2. 安全帶 (on1 cyun4 daai2) "seat belt"
This is my seat belt, 安全帶 (on1 cyun4 daai2).

Next word.
3. 空中服務員 (hung1 zung1 fuk6 mou6 jyun4) "flight attendant"
There is actually one standing right here.
Or, 空中小姐 (hung1 zung1 siu2 ze2) is for female, and 空中少爺 (hung1 zung1 siu3 je4) is for male.
空中服務員 (hung1 zung1 fuk6 mou6 jyun4) is the general term for both genders.
