This shouldn’t be allowed. Successful aircraft operations require good cockpit communication without personal or “power imbalance” issues.

Your comments area bout as stupid as they come your comment is so far off baise as father son and such have been done many times over the years. Very poor form dont know who you thing you are anyway.
If they are professional pilots (which I am sure they are), and CRM is taught and trained for like I know that Hawaiian does, I'm sure this daughter has no problem telling her mom when something is not right. Go fly your keyboard somewhere else.
