Indian parents often have the dream that their children will continue in the same field as them - and excel. For an air hostess of Air India, this dream came true when her own daughter piloted the last flight she ever worked on.

Ashrrita Chinchankar, who joined the airline two years ago, got to co-pilot the last flight with her mother, Pooja Chinchankar, who worked there for 38 years. Pooja had joined the airline when she was 19 years old and has been working there ever since.

"It was my mother who had always wanted me to be a pilot," Ashrrita says. "I was a mass media student before she suggested I pursue this."

Right from her childhood, Ashrrita was fascinated by her mom - when she, "saw her getting ready and going for flights." She also states how she's met so many captains, and after considering what her mother said, she decided to try pilot=ing.


On Monday, Ashrrita tweeted this.

Ashrrita said that she "had to put in a special request to fly with her mother", and stated in that request that "It was a special day." The airline granted the request! There were even special announcements made, which made the emotional moment even more special.





Ashrrita shared a photo of the flight crew which was on board as the flight took off.

She even shared a clip of her mother on her last day working as an air-hostess!





The Internet is touched over this sweet story, including the former Minister of Civil Aviation.













The airline, too, was thrilled.
