Back to Forum


Although a gimmick – but still laudable news:

MUMBAI: It’s an annual affair at the national carrier (Air India), to operate an all-woman flight to mark International Women’s Day.

This year though the celebrations are set to scale unprecedented heights as an all-woman crew will operate the ultra-long-haul Mumbai-New York flight. It will perhaps be the first time in the global aviation history that a 14-16 hour non-stop flight that cuts across ten time zones will be “manned” only by women.

Flight AI-141 will have two sets of women pilots as is the norm with these flights. It is scheduled to take off at 0130 hours on Monday. Apart from this, the airline will be operating three domestic all women’s flight.
