"Congratulations to both of you ladies, you are a reference for many other millions of women around the world, stating that to achieve the objectives and what is desired, everything depends on attitude, hard work and perseverance."

Julia Chatelain-van der Valk commented:

"What a great example of the importance for girls to have strong female role models. One of the reasons why my company focuses on the development of female leadership. So that our daughters can spread their wings and fly!"

Philipp E. Buchli, however, said such pair should be discouraged due to the risk involved. He wrote:

"Don't want to rain on the parade, but from a risk perspective this should be ruled out given potential adverse power dynamics in the event of emergency. Those aware of the same problem due to cultural issues in Asian carriers in particular will be aware of this issue. The problem has led to several fatal crashes and had to be addressed by the aviation regulators and carriers.
