In honor of International Women’s Day, Air India flew what it says is the longest flight in history with an all-female crew.
The plane left New Delhi on Sunday and arrived in San Francisco with four pilotsand 10 cabin crew members.
On that same day, Air India says it’ll fly a total of 22 all-female-staffed flights.
Aviation has historically been male-dominated. The Smithsonian reports only 4 percent of American pilots above the student level are women.
India, on the other hand, has almost 12 percent female pilots, roughly four times higher than the global average.
