Hundreds over the years, but then I've done several charters for Hollywood studios. Best was a trip to Las Vegas where we were met by 54 limousines. One of the Zucker brothers (Airplane) was standing there when the flight attendants opened the door. He took one look at the limos and said: "Who died?"
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

I flew from DTW to JFK once and William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy were aboard in FC, and NO they weren't sitting next to each other. One was quite rude to the ground staff at DTW; the other, Nimoy, was very polite, friendly, and outgoing. He was even signing autographs for fans before boarding.

On an Air Zimbabwe flight from Harare to Frankfurt (I think it was the flight on 13/02/2002), I had the dubious honor of flying on the same plane with the President of Zimbabwe, the "Honorable" (or was it the "horrible"?) Robert Mugabe...
Fortunately, he hadn't done what he usually did: "chartered" the plane to only fly him... that would have left me and all the other European attendants of Zimbabwe's tourism fair, which had taken place a few days earlier, stranded in Harare...

I dispatched Ronan Keating when he flew EDI-DUB with EI a few years ago. Although 1 celeb did p*** me off a few years ago in LHR. I was traveling on a Friends and Family ticket with bmi back to EDI and there was 1 seat left and I was called over to check-in for it having been waiting on stand-by for ages. Just as I got to the desk and started speaking to the agent, ''I don't believe it'' One Foot In The Grave star Richard Wilson turned up and took my seat having been 'campaigning for the labour party''. No wonder I vote Conservative ...
