Yeah, a few times. My guess would be about 1 in 6 of my flights have a female in the cockpit, so it isn't unusual. I remember one of them on a DL flight from CVG to ATL was really hot! I talked to her before the flight for like 15 minutes, she was very flirty. Love

Yep, UAL 777 from CDG-ORD. It was actually the same lady who was on Harry's Cockpit Video for 777 from FRA-ORD. Small world.  Smile

American Airlines flight from ORD to LAS. She was a 17 year captain and was nice enought to take a picture of me and the FO in the MD-80 cockpit after we landed in LAS. After that we talked a while about the flight and especially the landing on an 8 knot crosswind. She was really cool!


Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

I've had female captains on VS 747 JFK-LHR, AA 767 EWR-SFO, DL 767-300 JFK-FRA, AI 747-400 LHR-DEL, IA DEL-BOM A300. Many many airlines have female pilots except for Saudia and maybe Kuwait. Saudia doesn't know what it's missing. I guess you can say like the Taliban they're behind the times.

I flew with my first woman captain about a month ago, with Cityflyer from Gatwick to Jersey - a BA franchisee using RJ100s.

Before then, I've flown with a Qantas 747-400 S/O (and just a note re the above; S/O is a second officer and as young as that CX S/O looked, I doubt if she was 19!) and an F/O with Aer Lingus on the A321.

For information, Aer Lingus's first woman pilot, Grainne Cronin, moved into the left seat of the A330 this Summer.

Yes on a British Airways flight from London to Paris about 10 years ago, which was the most memorable.

Her landing was the smoothest and softest I have ever encountered in my life. I didn't even feel the wheels touch the strip.

A woman's touch?

I never had a female pilot on one of my flights. But I remember, when I was a ramp agent: After a nightstop, I started preparing everything for the first flight STR-BRU of a SN AR8. I brought Notam, Meteo etc into the cockpit, and I wondered why there were several pillows on the captain's seat. Later, when the crew arrived, I knew the answer: The captain of that flights was a young woman, and she was not really very tall - she needed those pillows to be able to look over the instrument panel out of the cockpit window... cute!

I was flown from LAX to Paris CDG in a United 777-200 by a full woman flight crew! Very professional, and outstanding landing in Paris. I heard them all the way over on Channel 9.

This is not related to the topic, but I had to ask: After Sept. 11, does UAL still make channel 9 available on their flights? I dont know if other airlines had that feature, but for me it made UA unique. Who cares about in-flight movies when you have channel 9 and route progress moving map in you seat?

Last January with Hapag-Lloyd we had a female 1st officer, she was flying and made a hard landing, but I´m sure it was due to wind shear or something else. Nothing against her.
