My sister forwarded me an interesting article about the “first” all female, all African American flight crew in United States history. Captain Rachelle Jones, first officer Stephanie Grant and flight attendants Diana Galloway and Robin Rogers made history on February 12th when their Atlanta-based Delta Connection carrier departed from Atlanta to Nashville, Tennessee. Delta Airlines, which has roughly 150 female pilots out of its 7,000, hailed the achievement as “the first scheduled commercial flight by a U.S.-based carrier with an all-female, African American crew.” “It seems fitting that this historic flight happened to take place during Black History month,” ASA President and COO Brad Holt said in a company press release. “Not only are these women gifted in their professions, but they set examples for young people across the country that with hard work, passion and determination, the sky is the limit.” Though I doubt that this achievement simply “happened ” to occur during Black History month (this sounds more like a pre-meditated publicity opportunity for Delta Airlines) I am proud of these sisters, nonetheless.
