Air host?

All the articles about this airline employee and his misconduct call him a flight attendant in the body of the article, yet every¬† article on Stuff.co.nz (yesterday and today) has a title referring to him as an “air host”. I didn’t even know an air host was a thing; I thought that we just used the gender-neutral term ‘flight attendant’ for everyone now, but possibly that’s just me?Aside from the fact that I prefer ‘flight attendant’ (because it is neutral), air host just sounds weird to me.

(Searching the internet for air host leads me to many articles about air hostesses, and the Stuff articles talking about this “air host”).
