In anticipation of a flurry of sexist comments I will now ask in a light hearted manner as to not offend anyone:

How long did she take to 'park' the plane?

Did she install a rear view mirror so she could put on her make up?

Was she not afraid to ask for directions?

Did she sing along loudly to the radio?

Only kidding, I am sure she is an excellent pilot & I would have no fear of being one of her passengers, but I do wonder why she only did her announcement at the end of the flight?

Please do not try to make me into a Welsh rugby player ladies :shock:

Yup . . . great voice giving her spiel (from the German - game) and then out camem a dragon look-alike, but the flight was good, so man or woman - doesn't matter. (The pink flouncy seat cozies were a bit much, though)

FYI--Jetstar Asia has three ladies who are captains. In all of the pilots who are Singaporean, only one lady who is a captain, and she just checked out within the last couple of months. And she is probably in her 50's.

Have had KLM flights a few times with female pilots.

I don't care so much for a male or female pilot, but the stewardesses are a MUST female! :P

Btw, Baron, good one, you're a 100% right! :mrgreen:

Hostie Toastie is another possibility, although usually for the females in that position.

Interesting thread.

Never thought about it, and never heard of a woman pilot's voice before! :o
