British Airways Captain Martin Ewins said it was a "special feeling" being able to share the office for the day with his daughter Rachel.

“For 20 years my daughter watched me fly around the world and I’m so proud that I’ve inspired her to do the same as cabin crew," Ewins said in a British Airways statement. "I was incredibly proud of her, and from the moment we stepped onto the plane we weren’t father and daughter, but two members of a flying crew getting ready to operate a flight."

Lois Mackerness, a member of the cabin crew, said her dad, David, inspired her to get into the business.

British Airways said it was the idea of finally bringing these families together for a special day that gave way to the new crew assignments — allowing the dads and their kids to have a shared experience in their shared profession.

“So many of our people have been inspired to work for British Airways because of the experiences of other family members and this was a fantastic opportunity to create a really special moment for everyone involved. It’s great to be able to reward the fathers in our teams who have inspired the next generation of aviation enthusiasts," said Ian Romanis, British Airways’ head of mixed fleet cabin crew.

And it was the ability to spend more time with his son Craig that made the flight special for cabin crew member Andrew Obal.

“With both myself and my son often working in different time zones and countries around the world, it sometimes means that we celebrate special days like birthdays and Christmas on different dates. Father’s Day is of extra importance for us as my son is now a father too, so being a part of this flight and watching my son serve our customers was such a special moment," he said.

"They aren’t the fastest-moving creatures," he told USA TODAY in a statement. "I’ve seen rabbits on the runway before, but in my four years flying with Jetstar, I’ve never seen a turtle on the tarmac.
