An often over-painted but nonetheless glamourous and sexy female cabin crew member on a commercial airline, so-called because they offer drinks and other refreshments from a trolley pushed down the centre aisle. Once, it was acceptable to also pinch or grope them as they passed with their trolleys but alas, no longer. Now they must use more complicated methods of picking up men that they fancy.

Otherwise known as "tarts with carts" or "flying mattresses ". Were known once for offering "coffee, tea or me".
"But mammy, I've always wanted to be a trolley dolly!" "But you'll be nothing but a flying mattress!"....
