female airline pilot
As the airliner pushed back from the gate, the flight attendant gave the passengers the usual information regarding seat belts, etc. Finally, she said, “Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to your destination.”

Joe sitting in the eighth row thought to himself, “Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman?”

When the attendants came by with the drink cart, he said, “Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?”

“Yes,” said the attendant, “In fact, this entire crew is female.”

“My God,” said Joe, “I’d better have two scotch and sodas. I don’t know what to think of all those women up there in the cockpit.”

“That’s another thing sir,” said the attendant, “We no longer call it the cock pit. Now it’s the box office.”

Thanks to Ivo for sending us this joke.


  1. I asked this senior captian if i could enter the cockpit during my LOE days….he looked at me and said ” only women have cock pits airceafts have flight decks.”

  2. In the early 70’s my first instructor was a woman. Since then, I have a lot of respect for female pilots. Afterwards, she became instructor on Airbus and Boeing twins. Later, some of my female copilots were quite surprised about my attitude. Not all captains appreciate female co-pilots. But none of these “men” dared to answer the question “why not”? The cock in his cockpit !!
