I found Indian air hostesses to be extremely friendly. It was a pleasure to travel in Air India, although it is extremely unreliable. American air hostesses on the other hand were usually quite rude and acted as if they were doing a big favor to us by serving us. Although, I don't blame them. I would act like American hostesses too if I had that job (obviously as a host not a hostess), but then I would not take up that job.
