HI,

like the topic says, have you ever flown with a celebrity or prominent politician?
This summer I sat 1A in a LH flight and on 1H was Katarina Witt a famous German figure skater. So not very special but what are your experiences?

(last topic I found is from 2003)

I flew on the same plane as the band members of the Norwegian pop group A-Ha from Oslo to Manchester about 13 years ago. My brother was even bold enough to ask Morten Harket for an autograph. . .and he got it  Smile.

I'm pretty sure I recall there being a celebrity thread since 2003, but no worries.

I was on the upperdeck on QF going to NZ a year and a half ago when Nicole Scherzinger, lead singer of the pussycat dolls, who has also sang and co-wrote with P diddy. She is very beautiful but was with her possy so I didn't want to bother her.
On the same flight (QF26 LAX-AKL) there was a ladt who use to be a top model... her name slips my mind but my dad who exactly who she was haha.

Then on a AS flight out of LA I was sitting in 3C and in 2D there was a TV host, I forget his name but found this picture of him:

ATL-RIC
Delta Air Lines.
Year: About 2000
Departure time: Around 10:30
Aircraft: 732
Seat 1D
I sat in front of Jimmy Dean on this flight. Apparently he commented on how tired I was and how I passed out for the whole flight. Also, I think he is somewhat demanding.

While flying for HA I had Matthew Fox (star of LOST) on a HNL-KOA flight in First Class with his wife....Margherita.

They drank Spicy Tomato juice, and were pretty quiet the whole flight.

Sweet.

I've always dreamed of one day meeting up with a celebrity on a flight one day...

However, when I met Steve Wozniak, he told me about how he uses his business card to cut his food on his flights. (with his awsome metal business card).
