 Air France Celebrates International Women's Day
With a 100 percent female crew on Airbus 380-the world's largest commercial airplane, Air France celebrates International Women's Day.

"Air France is bringing together the largest exclusively female crew in its history: two pilots and 22 stewardesses" for the flight, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

Air France has organised all-female crews to mark International Women's Day, celebrated every year on March 8, since 2006 but this year will be the first time on an A380 superjumbo, which can carry up to 516 passengers.

"Seeing an all-female crew makes an impression. I'm very excited about the idea of this flight," said Christine Heitz, who will pilot the flight.
