It’s a great story regardless of the negative posts of the he-man woman haters club.

That'd never worked in my family. A fight would've broken out before cruising altitude.

Congrats to mom and daughter. I wonder if that was a one-time crew allowance. I have heard that airlines don't want immediate family members flying together in case of that worst-case scenario. Sort of like the Military would not let me serve in Vietnam because my brother was already there.

Must admit I'd assumed it WAS a rule that close relatives could not crew together.

I'm not sure if it is a written-in-stone rule, but if you saw the movie Saving Private Ryan, I think it follows the same thinking. The airlines don't want to have to tell a family that their father-son or daughter or wife-son or daughter both perished in a crash. Personally, I think immediate family members should be allowed to fly together JUST ONCE, and then revert back to flying with others.

Even in corporate America, top execs aren't supposed to fly together.

That is why the President and Vice President have separate aircraft

Great news! My wife and mother-in-law were both United Methodist pastors. Breaking ground is great, but why has it taken so long?

And neckties??? Come on, SWA. It's time for a real female uniform.

Mom: Flaps 10. Daughter: I don’t want to mother. Mom: Now is not the time, dear. In all seriousness, wonderful story.

exactly: "gear up" - quit telling me what to do! "you over rotated" - shut up! "He said 10,000"-I've got ears don't I! "well, you missed a turn back there" - I brought you into this world...

Hah! My Mom was right... After a flight she said: "There are children running the plane" ;-)

A great accomplishment but, for the sake of the rest of the family, I think they should fly separately god forbid if something tragic occurred.

They may be the first to FLY TOGETHER but they were not the first mother-daughter duo pilots for Southwest. The first was Cathy Jones (hired 1982) and Claudia Simpson-Jones! I also recall watching the two on a Good Morning America spotlight in the '90s - one that included Captain Claudia's new husband at the time, First Officer Fred Sorenson - as they were 'all in the family' pilots at SWA! Claudia retired in 2000.

They are pictured together here on a CO jet prior to being hired at SWA (Claudia flew for Continental and Cathy for Hughes Airwest I believe) - https://isa21.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Claudia-and-Cathy-Jones-1980.jpg

Terrific! Hope they didn't have any mother-daughter arguments.

Imagining chat midflight:
Mom, "Do you have to flirt with that scruffy baggage handler?"
Daughter, "He makes me laugh"
Mom, "How he treats PAX luggage is enough to make anyone laugh."

This is something very special and they are both damn fine looking as well.

So now it's not the cockpit but the box office.
