“And this year also, we will be operating flights with all-women crew on both international and domestic sectors," an Air India official said.

Such move sends out a strong message that women are no different from the men when it comes to the tough job of flying, the official said.

Nusli Wadia promoted GoAir had yesterday announced a special scheme for women travellers, offering upgrade to business class for Rs 999.
