Two Pakistani sisters working as pilots makes history by becoming the first pair of sisters to fly a Boeing 777 aircraft together, the airlines said on Wednesday.
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) spokesman Danyal Gilani said that Maryam Masood and Erum Masood have been flying different planes but finally ended up in the same plane.
The two sisters flew the planes concurrently from Lahore to Karachi, Manchester, New York and London. “Pilot sisters make history for PIA by flying Boeing 777 concurrently,” he tweeted.
He said that there was no known record of two real sisters having flown the same weight category aircraft concurrently.
Erum was recently upgraded to fly a Boeing-777, which resulted in the happy coincidence of joining her sister in the cockpit. It is good news from PIA
