My last LAX-AUS flight, I sat next to former Texas Governor Ann Richards. I believe she works for a pharmaceutical company now as a lobbyist. On the same flight, Jesse James from the cable show Orange County Choppers was sacked out in 1A. I was waiting to get picked up at the airport, and Sandra Bullock pulled up in a Range Rover to pick up Jesse James. I think they are an item.  Smile

Drew Barrymore 1D SFO-LAX. The entire cabin was looking at her but I was too pissed at the fact that there was no window due to E+ upgrades. Didn't figure it out until we got off the a/c when the capt. came out to talk to her.

Thanks again.



It's West Coast Choppers and I don't even watch the damn show.....

Art Linkletter sat next to me DCA-PHL-LAX on US1 about 6 years ago. And, I forget her name, the young blonde from that TV show Northern Exposure and her boyfriend on UA SEA-HNL in the early 1990s. Flying in/out of DCA had numerous US Senators/Congresspersons - whether they are considered celebrities or not, I'd dare not say  Smile

I don't really pay that much attention to celebrities on planes, and if one is identified, I leave them alone . . .

Some people don't consider politicians to be celebrities, but, former TX Governor Ann Richards did a guest spot on "King of the Hill" once (as Bill's girlfriend), so she's a celeb of sorts you could say. I've never flown with celebrities aboard, or else I didn't see them.

Back in 1984 I flew LGW-IBZ on the same BCal DC10 as Linda Lusardi (probably only the older UK members will remember that "Page 3 Stunner"!). She even stopped to do a photocall at the top of the stairs when we landed at IBZ...with top ON!

More recently I was on a BA A319 TXL-LHR with Trevor Nelson the DJ. After we landed I overheard his entourage saying that he'd left his mobile on the plane...I bet whoever found it was able to make calls to some interesting people in his telephone directory!

Hate to be picky but... Jesse James is on "Monster Garage" based out of West Coast Choppers in CA. The famous Jr and Sr Paul Teutals are on "American Chopper" out of Orange County Choppers in NY; I'm a huge fan of both shows Smile Closest to a celebrity was on my last flight, CLT-BDL on Dec 16, a US Chairman's Preferred sure thought he was a celebrity while trying to shmooze his way into an upgrade even when first was already full!

Finnish President Tarja Halonen was on a same AY HEL-KTT (or RVN - can't remember anymore) flight few years back.

Former F1 World Champion Mika Häkkinen was on a same AY LHR-HEL flight in early 90's - when he was starting up with Lotus! Must've been -92 or something!?

Don't know if LH boss Wolfgang Mayrhuber counts as a celeb but he was on a same LH726/25Sep04 MUC-PVG. Nice guy, by the way  Big grin There was also bunch of other high LH managers on that flight.

 Big thumbs up

I was waiting for my flight back to ORD while in LAX -Terminal 4 - a few years ago, as we were killing time, a friend and I realized O.J. Simpson was in the Sunglasses Hut across from the gate. We went over the try and meet him, he turned out to be friendly; even let me take a picture of him with my friend (a blonde haired young lady) Her mother was none to thrilled to see the photos - esp. in light of his whole ordeal a couple years prior, but made for an interesting trip.

RCS763av: Once again, there is no Prime Minister in this Country; as you should known such position does not exist in our Country; Mr. Pretelt is the Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Justice (what was called in the past the Ministry of Government) So His position is Internal Affairs and Justice Minister.

Back on the topic, how was he? How did he behave? He is on the alumni of my school and at the meetings (when he attended) we was amazingly arrogant so everybody wanted to avoid him (except for the lagartos, jajajaja)

Back in the early 90's, I think, I was awaiting a flight from ELP-PHX on Southwest. Don Shula, coach of the Miami Dolphins, was also in the group of passengers waiting to fly out. However, I did not actually see him board the a/c.

In 1996, my now ex-wife and my oldest son and I were boarding an L1011 SAN-LAX-PHX on UA when I saw former Michigan and Ariz State basketball coach Bill Frieder sitting in the front row of first class. I said hello to Coach Frieder. He responded.

Long live the RJ!
