Mabye she's a deadheader. Or the Captain's mum! Although the idea of her being a competition winner seems a bit strange. After 9/11 I've never been allowed into the flight deck. Wouldn't the airline be frightened that she was Al Qaeda or the like? Just wondering
First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

Gentlemen - and Ladies!!
Every beginning of the school year, I ask a logic question to my classes: "a ten year old boy is wheeled into the operating room after a tragic accident that has claimed the life of his biological father. The surgeon, however, takes one look at the boy and says, 'I can't work on this child - this is my son!!' How is this possible?"
Rarely, if ever, does any of my sutdents get the correct answer. You would not believe the outrageous jumps in illogic so many people are prepared to take while overlooking the blatantly obvious - the surgeon is a woman.
Therefore, in keeping with that spirit, I pose this question - who is to say that the woman in the picture is not a pilot herself? Surely all the men here have heard of women in the cockpit before...
I may be wrong, but in the interest of fairness, I'm going to guess that she is giving either the pilot or the co-pilot a line check.
