PIA appoints all-women crew for ‘difficult’ flight to Gilgit

GILGIT: Social media on Thursday blew up with a picture of two female pilots, Captain Maryam Masood and First Officer Shumaila Mazhar, taken before the duo flew the national carrier all the way to Gilgit.

According to Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), the flight to Gilgit is very challenging and requires a lot of precision and technique as the route not only flies above populated valleys and high peaks on the way.

This isn’t the first time Captain Maryam has given the nation a reason to be proud. In August 2016, she along with her sister Erum Masood made history by flying the coveted Boeing-777 aircraft to various local and international destinations.

By the looks of it, more and more Pakistani women seem to be making it as pilots, a male-dominated airline job in the country and people couldn’t be happier about it.

Support and praise also poured in from both parents and male members of society.

Some people called out PIA on its lazy and shameful attitude.

Ashfaq did not use a single brain cell and tried to make it dirty for everyone.

However, common sense prevailed.

Bottom line:
