    You found a word. Amazing! I have not seen any of the selected words of late.

    I think azafata is definitely still common although articles and discussion groups are pointing towards a trending change from azafata to asistente de vuelo or auxiliar de vuelo. In my experience, I have never actually heard anyone say azafato but I have seen it in articles such as the newspaper article you referenced.

    I found an interesting article about the word azafata and ironically without having done any prior research it mentions what I stated in my post #28 that if there is a word shift happening it's aeromoza ---->azafata----->auxiliar de vuelo or asistente de vuelo.

    Great! You see that is the whole idea. Your awareness has changed now. It's a different way of learning words in a language. It's a win /win on both sides. Your Spanish and English improve.

    I finally found another example of a su vez in an article. The more examples you see the easier it is to understand the meaning of the phrase and how to use it.


    El dato lo ha obtenido la Central Sindical Independiente y de Funcionarios (CSIF) de entre las tablas estadísticas de la Delegación para el Gobierno contra la Violencia de Género, alimentadas a su vez por el Servicio Público de Empleo Estatal del Ministerio de Empleo y Seguridad Social.
