Fight Against Maturity

A new definition of “Stupid”

A Mumbai-bound flight was delayed by one-and-a-half hours at the Delhi airport Friday morning — first by fog and then by a passenger who did not want to travel on a plane piloted by a woman.

Passengers on board had a curious story to tell as to why Indigo flight 6E 179, supposed to depart at 8.10 a.m., could not take off before 9.40 a.m.

“First the flight was held up by a slight fog. Then, just when we were about to fly, the doors were opened again at around 9 as a middle-aged man seated a couple of seats away from me objected to a woman piloting the plane,” co-passenger Partha Guha told IANS.

The man apparently turned jittery after the customary flight announcement was made, giving the pilot’s name – it was a woman.

via Woman pilot? Won’t fly!.
