I worked a flight a few years back at Southwest where both pilots were female; as well as all three flight attendants, the operations agent (boarding the flight), the gate agent (checking in the flight) and ramp agents loading the flight! Wish I had my camera for that one!

CA - Sherry Emminger
FO - Karen Squyres

The first all female jet crew was on a Piedmont Airlines B737-200, May 10th 1982
CA - Cheryl Faye Peters
FO - Rebecca Rose Schroeder
FA - Paula Lanier
FA - Dolly Wenat
FA - Cindy Perry

I actually once saw about 2 years ago on the news a story about flying and there were 2 female pilots flying the concorde during the flight.....captain and co-pilot. I dont remember if the flight engineer was as well female.
I just think that was cool!! And it was with BA i believe.
GDB can u confirm this?

I've been on a VS A340 with an all female flight deck crew. I think it's great and I wasn't the slightest bit bothered.
Not only was she captain (I've forgotten her's and the FO's name now), she was Fleet manager or chief A340 pilot or something like that. Had me in the J/S for landing into heathrow. (this was in 2000). Showed me all the bells and whistles on the plane and was hospitable. I was truly appreciative.
