  1. I just saw a tweet on your timeline from Jet Airways acknowledging this post of yours! I’m sure the pilot must feel so proud to have you notice and appreciate her.

  2. This made me so proud. The change is there, slowly and gradually but its there. So wonderful that you could meet her. Maybe a pic with her?

    Bangalore to Mumbai was one of the only trips where I once had an experience of a woman pilot along with male Co-pilot. The same thought struck me at that point of time. However describing and putting it beautifully in words is a commendable job done by as always… 😊

    Oh, what a fun theme to read about. Great. I guess the good thing is that at least they can become what they want – and get education to a pilot if they like! Thats not the case in all countries in the world. I found it so interesting I googled …. not a lot of female pilotes anywhere in the world though…

    What a wonderful experience! Those are rather sad statistics, but I’m glad things are heading in a more balanced direction (at least I hope they are!).

  6. Wow… those stats are sad… just 3 %. I’m glad they are rising and I certainly look forward to being on my first flight with a woman pilot (yes, I thought about it and realized that I too had never been on one yet)

    That’s awesome that you met with the captain. I have flown a lot but never had a woman captain yet. 🙂

    I haven’t flown in years but it would make me feel proud – and safe, to be flown by a woman.

  12. This was an empowering post. It feels nice to know women are pushing the envelope to enter newer professions. I got this feeling earlier when I was returning from Delhi to Bangalore recently when the captain made the announcement of his and his co-pilot’s name. The co-pilot was a woman.
