Flight Attendant’s Dream of Flying With Her Pilot Daughter Comes True on Her Last Day At Work

An Indian pilot recently took to Twitter to share a special moment about flying with her flight attendant mother on her last day at work.   

Pilot Ashrrita Chinchankar posted a tweet on Tuesday after fulfilling her mother Pooja Chinchankar’s dream of piloting her last flight with Air India from Mumbai to Bengaluru.

“It was my mom’s dream to have me pilot her last flight as an Air Hostess with Air India,” she wrote, sharing an image of her mom smiling while surrounded by the flight crew.

“As she retires after her glorious 38 years of service, I will be carrying on her legacy.”

The tweet about their heartwarming moment has been liked over 14,000 times and received hundreds of comments, with many showering the two women with love, wishes and lots of praises.

 

 

 

 

“I am both happy and overwhelmed. Happy because people can relate to the emotion, and overwhelmed because people are celebrating the goodness,” Ashrrita told the BBC.

“She plans to travel for a couple of months, after which she will decide what she wants to do,” she added.

Ashrrita then posted a video of the passengers applauding her mom as she walked through the plane.

 

 

Air India, businessman Harsh Goenka and Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Jayant Sinha also posted nice words for the mother and daughter.

 

 

According to a representative of Air India, the special moment was not planned and was just a coincidence that Ashrrita was flying the aircraft during her mother’s farewell flight.
