Cool teaser, but I wish your answered would have been a little more detailed, possibly explaining why they all work out that way.

Good one! takes a little time to solve but is not hard at all.

Weird how they ALL have different surnames to their fathers

Dude, those are double-barrel names, not surnames! Without having the same surnames as their dads, one could not get the answer as you use the clue of 'Elizabeth JOHNSON'...

Once you go through the basics Carla has to be either Bruckner or Thompson. Carla can't be a Bruckner because Mr. B's plane is the MaryLynn and mr. Christopher's daughters name is not Marylynn. After you figure this out, it is easy.

I had to write down the pilot's plane names and daughters names first. Then, I figured out who Lord Christopher's daughter is. After that I knew the answer.

Too complicated for me. I tried, but got so muddled I quit!

I don't do logic puzzles.

Very little logic needed. Pretty easy.

I'm not very good at these - even when I use a matrix or a table.

I guess that's why I like them so much; they really challenge me.

Good job! I rated it tops for fun !!
