I have no idea about jewel. The only way you can tell if a famous person is on board is to look for yourself. You might ask a FA but if they had any respect for that celeb. they wouldn't tell you. I have had a few famous people but you probably aren't interested. They aren't the most exciting people and most of the time they are quite dumb. But there are a few that are very nice.

It could have been a biz-jet or a passenger flight, or a charter.
A lot of Celebs fly on biz-jets. Paul Anka flew through where I used to work on MGM's bird once. Amway flew former President flew on their 727 and nearly destroyed two Super Cubs at Cold Bay. I have seen both Celion(SP??) Dion and Frank Sinatra totaly blitzed on their way back home on New Years Day at about two in the morning. They had been hitting the Bar on MR. Sinatras G-II just a little bit. I have met Billy Gates. Neat G-IV had these two rows of lights that ran around the engine intakes. Made two light circles on each side of the airplane...NEAT. And Sylvester Stallone refused to get off the airplane, The president of Mexico didn't have that problem but after seeing the landing the pilot made.....
I can't remember the name of that grand champion sumo wrestler but he flys Northwest and they have a special seat for him that they install that replaces two first class seats. I think it depends on the passenger. Some people don't mind others want their privacy. I think a lot depends on the person. My understanding was that Charles Lindberg would always travel under an alias but would hand his buisness card to one of the flight attendents and ask if she would ask the captian if he would mind him visiting if he wasn't two busy. I understand those buisness cards from him are prized by the pilots who got them. I think I can understand that.
As for MS Jewel Kiltcher I refuse to buy any on her CD's. I am from Homer too, and she used to pick on me back in the sixth grade. Sorry....this has been festering for a decade and a half now.

I'm sure this is not really what you are looking for, but back in August 1997, Jimmy Carter flew on my Delta 757-200 from ATL-SLC and he walked through the entire cabin and introduced himself. It was quite an experience!

OK, can anyone track down on Jewel's flight from Australia to New Zealand?
Regarding to L-188's comments, I agree.
Her personality have changed when she's became famous-I went to her Melbourne concert on 3rd march and at the end, about 30 fans waited for around 1 hour (from 1045 pm to 1145pm) and she won't sign any autpgraphs-i was quite pissed off at her. and guess what she did-escaped by exiting the other doors. then the her workes pueposeuly unlodaded boxes and containers at the back door so she won't be able to come out that particular door.
I also sent her a fan mail about a year ago-and still no reply!
Tell me L-188, did you knew Jewel when you grew up in Homer, tel us one of her secrets!
from now, i only like her music, not her poseonality.

Hey get this out of the forum. It doesn't belong here. You want to know about Jewel visit her website. This isn't Teentalk. Check the rules. #1 maybe. Civil Aviation related posts only. Your new here. Take a minute to read them. You might also want to check your post for spelling errors. Hence the note on the bottom of the page above the post button. I haven't seen spelling that bad since the likes of Iain.

We all have to make the effort to keep the forum in line. I've been on this forum for about 6 months now. The quality of the forum has declined to the point where it is no longer enjoyable to come here. I hope it will turn around again. I know you don't know but many of the knowledgeable people and I'm sure some of the less knowledgable ones have left. If you know what you typed then correct it before you post it. Others can't figure it out. If you want to ask L-188 about jewel E-mail him.

I sat one seat away from Bob Katter. The Australians out there will know who he is. he is a National Party member of Parliement. Anyway, the guy is crazy - there was this woman who was a first time flyer next to him, and she was really scared. So, this guy totrued the poor woman and stated talking about airplane crashes and how bad some of them were but not to worry because we will all die instantly and so it won't hurt. The flight was an Ansett one from Brisbane to Townsville. So that is what John Howard ment when he was talking about "north queensland nationals".
(by the way i vote liberal so nobody can say i have something against the coalition)
And my friend - he was on the same flight as Pauline Hanson! Buy, these are dangerous flights. He sat 2 rows away from here, and it was from Perth to Sydney when her and her loonies where on a canpain tour. My friend said that peroidically, people would turn around and give her dirty looks, and you could see her stewing htere like she wanted to get up and bit someobdies head off. They try to give her window seats apparently so her supports (they very few that can afford to fly) don't go up and wish her luck and cause a war in mid air with the rest of the passengers! That would really put a 737 to the test - i can see the coffee pots flying out of the gallays! For those of you who are interested, the leader of the one nation party flies Qantas!

I have been on several flights with celebrities, because they fly often between LAX and JFK, which is a route that I also fly often. My experiences have been that the only way to know that a celebrity is on board is to see them, because there weren't any announcements on the flights I took. By the way, some celebrities like to get their privacy AND fly on commercial flights, because on one flight my family couldn't go first class because Cher had purchased the whole cabin.

Boy My messages sure get ugly when I type them out at 1:30 in the morning.
I left out that the Ex-president that Amway was flying around was Gerald Ford. I got a lot of shots of that airplane and hopefully when I move I will be able to scan them and send them up to this site.
I missed meeting Clay Lacy when he came through. Damm!!! all the fuelers out there got those CLA hats. But it was my day off!!!!
I also didn't get to meet the president of Boeing when he flew through CDB on his way to China. Heres a triva fact for you guys. The 1R door on both the 757 and the IL-62M are the same height above the ground.

I ended up sitting across the asile frome Wayne Gretzky on an Air Canada flight (A320) from Calgary to Winnipeg a few years back (I was in C, he was in E in Executive class; so I was right beside him!). Realy nice guy... gave me an autograph.... and called his manager and wife on the Airphone. He ordered the chicken, but when he came to his disert (chocolate fudge browney) he offered it to me and I took it of course (who's going to pass that up?) He was realy good to the crew, and I gained a lot of respect for him on that day.

Two years ago whilst on a visit to Heathrow my fellow spotters and I were told to clear the area (carpark roof) because the Queens sister or some other royal hanger on was passing through and we were a security risk.
What a bloody cheek. We were told to go to a certain area so we could see this person. What for?. We were there to spot planes not royalty.
The quicker Britain get rid of this Royal family the better. I'am British, I don't expect special treatment so why should they?
