Before I go, I just wanted to ask,
are you The Ms. Yutani?" [italics mine]

In this line, Amanda establishes that the head of Yutani corporation in 2137 is female. I must have missed that somewhere down the line. Of course, Naoko's response is interesting too:

          YUTANI
Merely her second cousin. It is a
powerful name to bear, with many
responsibilities.

I haven't played the game far enough to find out exactly where Yutani and Thorncroft were going on the Haldin. From the game dialogue, they apparently did not received Amanda's warning, so they must have already been headed to Mendel Station.

Not sure this is really a spoiler, but just in case.

Alien Covenant Origins establishes that in 2104 (I think, since it's just prior to the film, though I've not read it in awhile), the head of Weyland-Yutani is Hideo Yutani, and his daughter is named Jenny. I'd guess that it's Jenny Yutani that Amanda is referring to.
