Air India Made History By Sending An All-women Crew On An Around-the-world Flight


Air India says it has made history with an around-the-world flight led by an all-female crew.

Last Monday (Feb 27), the all-woman team flew a Boeing 777 over the Pacific Ocean from New Delhi to San Francisco. Then on Friday, they flew over the Atlantic Ocean from San Francisco back to New Delhi, CNN reports.

Every staff member—including the fight's captains, cabin crew, check-in and ground handling staff, air-traffic controllers, and engineers—were women.

In light of the recent accomplishment, a spokesperson for Air India told CNN that the airline has applied for a Guinness World Record. The flight was a part of a series of all-female flights that commemorates International Women's Day on March 8. (IT,DM)
