[Article about air stewards etc. Mentions:] How about the stewards? "We are the league of forgotten people. You never hear about us, do you?" asked Mr L H Gumbleton, a butler before he became a BEA steward two years ago.

There is something in this. Tradition keeps the limelight firmly on the stewardesses, yet the steward in charge is ultimately responsible if anything goes wrong. It all goes to show, in Mr Gumbleton's words, that "behind every successful woman there's a man".
