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?

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 .

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.

Delta Air Lines.
Year: About 2000
Departure time: Around 10:30
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.
The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

Flew NW34 (SEA-AMS) two years ago and former Seattle Supersonics star/fan favorite and current assistant coach Detlef Schrempf was onboard. I chatted with him briefly during boarding...really friendly guy! Of course, once on the plane, he took a left turn at the aisle and I a right!
