|Busted singles chronology|
"Air Hostess" is a song by English pop rock band Busted. Composed by the band along with Tom Fletcher of McFly, and Stewart Henderson it was released on 26 April 2004 as the third single from their second studio album, A Present for Everyone (2003), and reached number two on the UK Singles Chart.
The song was inspired by flight attendants which Busted saw whilst on tour. The B-sides "Mummy Trade", "Peaches" and "Let It Go" did not appear on any other release, and were exclusive to this single. "Mummy Trade" was written by James Bourne and Charlie Simpson, "Let It Go" was written by Bourne and McFly members Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter, while "Peaches" is a cover of The Presidents of the United States of America. They were occasionally played live, such as on CD:UK which was on 1 May 2004 on ITV1.
The single was also promoted by appearances on Top of the Pops Saturday, MOM, Popworld, CD:UK, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, TRL and the short-lived Simply the Best.
A humorous music video was made in which the band spy on two female flight attendants and illegally board the aeroplane (a Concorde) they are travelling on. The line "I messed my pants when we flew over France" was edited out when the video was shown during the daytime.
