Amazing Women of Color

I know the only airline I'll be flying from now on!

The First Airline Founded By A Black Woman Is Going International This Month

Fly Blue Crane, which has been operating domestically within South Africa since its inception last September, will be conducting its very first international flight when it launches its service from Cape Town to Windhoek on May 13. The airline is under the leadership of CEO, Sizakele Mzimela, who’s also the first black executive vice president of South African Airways and the first woman to be selected to the Board of the International Air Transport Association, AFKInsider reports.

I don't know if that airline would actually be available in my area but it doesn't matter because I'm too poor to fly anywhere. Anyway, this is an amazing accomplishment in yet another industry that's been a goddamn boy's club since it existed. I'm sure she'll help the under appreciated and often harassed flight attendants.
