It’s a feel good story that definitely touched a lot of hearts. Initially shared on Twitter, we learn about a female pilot who did her best to make her mother feel special on her last day at work.
Ashrrita, a pilot for Air India, shared a photo of her mother’s final day of work and the post has since gone viral, gaining attention from numerous netizens and news sources.
“So happy and honoured to be able to pilot the one flight that mattered,” wrote Ashrrita.
She further added:
“It was my mom’s dream to have me pilot her last flight as an Air Hostess with Air India. As she retires after her glorious 38 years of service, I will be carrying on her legacy.”
Truly heart-melting, right? Now things even got more special when Ashrrita’s mom shared a video of her mother receiving applause from passengers as she took a walk through the aisle.
