This is so cool! Ethiopian and African airlines as a whole is very progressive with showcasing their female crews....

Twelve minutes before schedule, ET506 landed @ EZE with 174 paxs on board, from ADD via GRU. First ever commercial flight between Ethiopia and Argentina.

I haven't viewed the twitter video but the photo shows just three FAs, one purser and four female pilots. There are others in beige which look like ground crew. Where are the rest of the FAs?

From the photo you get the sense how huge the LR is!!

Congrats ET!! It would be good to have higher female representation in the exec ranks too.

So excluding men for the inaugural flight is considered progressive?

@aircatalonia it’s difficult to see an issue when you’re part of it. Why are you looking at this as exclusion? It’s ground breaking.

Nice try, the inaurgual flight happened to be on March the eight - International Women's Day, and as such ET probably found it fitting to use a female only crew. Which I personally think is a rather important and progressive statement to make in a region that still has a lot of work to do, when it comes to promoting women's equal rights.

Now, go troll somewhere else.

November 19. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Men%27s_Day

Next time try harder with the troll.

As for Ethiopian, nice little bit of PR. Always good to show representation like this as it is shown to work.

Sadly, it is every day as long as we continue to get paid more for equal work than women... And that is just one example.

Remember the day you were born my friend. We tend to forget who gave us life. And let us NOT forget too many die giving us the gift of life.
