Absolutely, if you do it in a polite, respectful and non-creepy way.
(If your intention is to flirt with the flight attendant, the same caveats still apply.)
This generally goes for any person to whom you wish to pay a compliment, in any situation.
Here’s something that has worked for my friends and myself that might help:
Since we hear the same things all the time while walking around (Hey beautiful!/Day-AMN girl!/your <blank> is the most lovely one I’ve ever seen), while flattering, (and as long as they’re not overly creepy, still eliciting a smile) we tend to tune those out.
What gets our attention (and interest) are the unusual compliments, like:
“I love the way you cut your hair/did your nails/applied your eye makeup/etc – can I take a picture for Pinterest?”
“I saw the way you interacted with that person/child/couple/family – and I just wanted to say your kindness is truly heartwarming.”
