Aviation has terrible gender optics, and not just with pilots and engineers. The C-suite is nearly void of women for flimsy, unacceptable reasons. In this deep dive, women on the commercial side of aviation share how it feels to hit the glass ceiling in 2019, and occasionally break through.

Sadly, that women get paid less than men doesn't come as a surprise but it is still shocking to see such a huge disparity. With the figures now out in the open in the UK, companies have a responsibility to see that the gap is closed as quickly as possible. We'd also like to see more diversity among the leadership teams.

Classy move by the new EasyJet CEO. Suggests solidarity, I guess. How about instead, you raise women's salaries to match those of their male counterparts?

Laws have been changed to supposedly eliminate gender bias but the problem at senior levels still persists. Companies first need to admit they have a problem, then they can do something about it. Perhaps there should be greater consideration of quotas.

A 51.7 percent pay gap feels cavernous, even if we expect aviation to be more male-dominated than other travel sectors. Without Carolyn McCall at the EasyJet helm, the company will have to work that much harder for gender equality.

Considering the pilot shortage in the region — and elsewhere — airlines should look beyond the men's room for candidates.

Caesars Entertainment is promoting The Cromwell as a new hotel experience in Las Vegas focusing on personal service, while leveraging the all-female C-suite as industry disruptors and role models for working women.
