Air India And Air France, Others Left The Men At The
In celebration of International Women's Day Tuesday, several
airlines including Air France and Air India flew routes with
all-female crews, from the front office to the aft galley.
USA Today reports that Air India flew 11 routes with
all-female crews, including one between New Delhi and Toronto. Air
France reported only one flight from Charles de Gaulle to Hong Kong
as being "fully female". That crew was made up of three
female pilots and 15 "air hostesses."
Of the 4,200 pilots flying for Air France, about seven percent
are women. They serve as captain for every type of aircraft in the
Air France fleet.
