Jet Airways - Women Flight Crew

Tue Jan 03, 2012 1:39 pm

AT breakfast on Jan 01 at the BRU Sheraton, there were 4 9W outbound long haul flight crews, including 5 women - 2 captains and 3 FOs. In the elevator, I also encountered an inbound captain and FO - both women. Coincidence, or does anyone know if 9W has a relatively high proportion of women flight crew?

I don't know about 9W specifically, but India has always been a leader when it comes to women in commercial aviation; Indian Airlines and Air India have been pioneers of this and it would not surprise me if India has one of the highest proportion of women pilots in the world.
