Very good video. The crew seemed very nice + professional. I loved that shot of the 787's red engine from the cabin.  


It never occurred to me before that some people might never have flown in a plane before they went to flight school. Certainly an eye opener.
First to fly the 787-9

It's great to see more and more flight decks becoming "unmanned".

What a beautiful video in every sense of the word ! I hate to be political, but amazing to watch this and think about what various barbarians around the world do to women. This video is a glimpse into the future of human civilization, if we ever get there  

I'd fly anywhere with these wonderful ladies. Kenya should be very proud.

Great video! It's interesting to think that only a few decades ago, a female pilot, let alone an all female crew, might have been enough to make some people refuse to board the plane (and a study from 2 years ago suggests that some are still uncomfortable with the thought of a woman at the controls http://www.sunshine.co.uk/news/who-d...e,-male-or-female-pilots-105.html)

How inspiring to see such a proud group of people, the pilot was brilliant as was the first officer and the FA's were also enjoying their jobs...at one point, one of the most glamorous jobs to have. Bravo for Kenya!

Fantastic that such progress is being made and especially interesting that the captain has 19 years at Kenya Airways already and was their first female pilot.
More than a dozen years flying in and around Asia...

First, it's a well done video.

I have to admit, though, that I'm a bit saddened that this is still "news" in 2015. As the father of daughters, I want no barriers in front of them. There are so many female doctors and attorneys, but female airline pilots are still well into the minority, I had hoped that there would be more progress.

The KQ motto of "Pride of Africa" is very well deserved in this case. The legendary Kenyan hospitality in full display through this video. Congrats KQ!!!
