Pooja Chinchankar retired on Tuesday after a Mumbai-Bangalore-Mumbai flight, which her daughter piloted.

Soon after the flight, Ashrrita Chinchankar tweeted: “So happy and honoured to be able to pilot the one flight that mattered. It was my mom’s dream to have me pilot her last flight as an Air Hostess with @airindiain :) As she retires after her glorious 38 years of service, I will be carrying on with her legacy #grateful #proud.”
