The one I was thinking about was Royal Brunei Airlines and an all female muslim crew in 787 last March. There may have been others as well.

According to the BBC article there are only 450 female captains worldwide. I find that a very low number. I comment EasyJet for their active promotion of female pilots and hopefully creating an atmosphere where they are respected for their achievements. I know Aer Lingus has flown an all female A330 to LAX from DUB, and that there was another airline that flew an all female crew from Asia (cannot recall the airline or route) to Saudi Arabia where the pilots would not be allowed to drive! This was to celebrate Women's Day. Any help and clarification appreciated

The airline was from Kazakhstan and the flight was to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The two pilots were Muslim women flying into a country where women were forbidden to even drive automobiles. That's what made the story. A couple of years ago.

I thought we are all "gender neutral" now? What about an XY that identifies as an XX? I feel so objectified. I guess that Aer Lingus has some cunning hiring techniques..but, a three way to Asia to make sure a man can drive to DUB?
