Did a quick search on the forum and found that this hasn't been discussed in a few years. Who have you met on board, and how were they? At I'm Grade II cabin crew at EK so I'm stuck down back, only occasionally helping out in Business. But I have seen a few celebrities on our flights, as well as heard stories from friends. We get a lot of smaller scale Aussie celebs on our trans-Tasman flights as well as guys and gals who are continuing on to Europe. The only one I can name is Aussie TV presenter Jason Dundas who was flying between AKL and SYD and I remember him because he was a right a**. Seated in Business with his female companion and were pretty full of themselves, wearing their sunglasses throughout the flight. Knocked back glass after glass of champagne too.

Heard from a friend that we have had Angelina Jolie on several of our flights, she met her on a CDG-DXB flight in First Class, apparently she was really nice and engaged the crew in conversation in the forward galley. Hayden Christensen also flew with us, on the DXB-YYZ flight apparently on his way back from the Dubai Film Festival. He is apparently even more gorgeous in person and was really nice, very low key. Gave the First Class crew the goodie bags from the festival, which apparently were not shabby at all! Also heard that Alicia Keys was on a relatively recent JFK-DXB A380 flight on her way to perform in concert. She had an entourage and apparently gave out free VIP passes to the crew! Beyonce and Jay Z had two suites to themselves on a LAX-DXB flight, both were unexpectedly low maintenance. Kylie Minogue apparently likes us a lot and uses pretty frequently when she doesn't fly private. There was also a week in December during the Atlantis opening that a whole barrage of celebrities were spotted on our flights coming in from LHR, SYD, MEL, LAX, JFK, CDG etc. but of course none of them were on my flights  Sad Granted I did a lot of ISB/BLR/BOM/MAA turns that month, so wouldn't imagine meeting them on those flights.

What are your stories!?

My mom a few months back flew on a NW flight that had Kid Rock and his band onboard. Need less to say Kid Rock was the only one in FIrst.

I flew on a CO flight IAD-LGA years back with Bill Walton and Greg Gumbel. They had been working a Houston Rockets NBA game (playoffs?) and were heading back to NBC headquaters on the same flight I was on. I made sure to delay my boarding so that I would pass them as I made my way back to the minions in Y class.

Some years later, I saw Regis Philbin on a JetBlue flight. Not surprisingly, it was heading to PBI near where Regis has a home. He looked a lot older in person that he does on tv!

My friend's wife was a flight attendant for UA and, naturally, used to see a lot of celebs when she would work First Class. The best, she said, was Ringo Starr. He was charming, personable and not stuck up at all, perhaps not even what one would expect. The list of bad, rude and self-righteous celebrities that she encountered is too long to print here though.

None shall pass!!!!

My home base is Los Angeles, so I've been on many flights w/celebrities (they were all in First Class), including:

Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith on LH FRA-LAX
Babyface & his family on UA LAX-NRT
Brad Garrett on UA LAX-DEN
Pamela Anderson on BA LAX-LHR
Sharon Osbourne on VS LAX-LHR
Zhang Ziyi (from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) on UA SYD-LAX

I didn't talk to them, though, so I can't tell you how they acted. As a passenger I generally leave people alone.  Wink

LAX-YYZ: Vigo Mortensen back in 2005 or 2006 ..In fact he sat in the row in front of me...He was escorted into the plane by the AC concierge agent. I knida felt shafted as I was Air Canada Super Elite at that time (and usually get the concierge agent to walk me aboard...)

Haha do tell, at least some of the more out of line ones!

Forgot to add to the list Orlando Bloom, flying between DXB and NCE. Apparently a real charmer, very engaging and flirty. Possibly had a hint of a big head, but no attitude in the sense of entitlement or anything.

I fly the LAX-ATL route quite frequently and have had many different folks on board. Perhaps my least favorite celebrity and one that I lost a lot of respect for is Ashton Kucher. He is a jerk to say the least. I was the first to board the red eye flight to ATL and was shocked to see someone on board already, in my seat nonetheless. He was already half passed out and drunk and had no patience for me asking to switch seats (out of my seat and in to his). Two days later I saw he and his grandmother........Demi Moore on the sidelines at an Atlanta Falcons game. Also have seen DL Hugely, Jeff Foxworthy, Artie Lange (Howard Stern show), Kid Rock, Anderson Cooper and a few others that I can not remember their names. Other than Ashton, the only other one I have sat next to is DL. He was very quiet but nice when he did speak. I am flying back to ATL tonight on the 12:30am redeye in 2A, hopefully more to report then.

I once had the controversial Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork on my plane.

My defining brush with non-greatness, however, probably came in the summer of 1991, when I flew David Atkins, better known to the world as "Sinbad," the now-forgotten actor and comedian who once had his own talk show and HBO comedy special. He sat in the back row of our Beech-99, surrounded by an entourage of beautiful women.

Sinbad seemed a perfectly nice guy, and in the Compass Rose restaurant at the Nantucket airport he bought me and my copilot chicken sandwiches, asking us for advice on what kind of airplane he should buy. We told him to invest in a Cessna Citation -- a twin-engine executive jet -- though I can't remember why. I was making about 13 grand at the time, and would probably say anything for a chicken sandwich.

The great New York Yankees catcher Thurman Munson was killed at the controls of a Cessna Citation in 1979, but I don't think we mentioned this to Sinbad.

1994. Logan Airport, and I'm in the captain's seat of a Northwest Airlink 19-seater, preparing for departure to Baltimore. Up the front stairs comes Michael Dukakis. He stops briefly behind the cockpit and I said hello.

Mike Dukakis and his family reside in Brookline, Massachusetts, an affluent quasi-suburb bordering Boston. I once met his daughter, Kara, at a party there in the 1980s -- one of those three-second introductions people have no business remembering. So naturally I remember it, and feeling mischievous, I say to Mike Dukakis as he passes the cockpit door, which is actually just a curtain: "Hey, how's Kara these days?"

Mike whips around and looks at me sharply, "How do you know Kara?" The way he did this was fairly intimidating. He ought to have employed that same tone and incisive stare in his debates with ole George Herbert Walker a few years earlier.

And he knows I'm not bluffing, because I'd gotten the pronunciation of Kara right -- the pretentious way, the "a" like in "car." It's all I can do to keep from laughing, because, of course, I don't know his daughter. Later I imagine the ex-governor asking Kara if she knows some young airline pilot, and she having no idea what he's talking about.

After we land in Baltimore, Dukakis thanks us for the ride and remarks, "Not a lot of room in here." Even at 5'8" he's right about that.

"Yeah," I answer, "It's not exactly Air Force One."

Meanwhile, intentionally or otherwise, the Duke has left a huge sheaf of important-looking papers in his seat pocket, doubtless because he's run to a phone to cuss out his secretary for booking him on that skinny little plane with the annoying pilot.

I carry the papers inside to the agent and say, "Here, these belong to Mike Dukakis." She looks at me like I'm crazy.

A couple of years later, Dukakis wrote an editorial for the Boston Globe in which he lambasted Massport's plans for building a badly-needed new runway at Logan Airport. Having written two pro-runway editorials for the paper myself, I sent copies to Dukakis's office at Northeastern University, where he'd gone to spend post-political life as a professor.

He wrote back personally on a sheet with Northeastern letterhead, restating his case and apologizing, thank you, for use of the term "puddle jumpers." I guessed he wouldn't remember me, but just to be safe I didn't bring up Baltimore, Kara, or the Air Force One crack. "Let's keep working on a solution," he wrote.

I still have the letter here, which endearingly looks as though it came out of a typewriter from the 1950s, the letter "e" all blotted and smudged.

The only time I've been aware of a major internationally famous star going on the same flight as me, was on a BA flight from LAX-LHR in the spring of 2004. That was Sharon Stone.

I didn't even notice her until someone else in my party pointed her out. She was standing across the room from me at the departure gate. Dressed very casually in jeans and a white T-shirt, not wearing much bling or make-up, there was not much fuss around her. (Not like when she came to Norway a few years later to host the Nobel Peace Prize Concert and had tons of media people trailing her when she spent around 40.000 dollars on fur in half an hour during a quick shopping trip to one of Oslo's upmarket shopping areas.)

During my time working at FBU I met a few celebs, though most of them only Norwegian ones. My impression was the bigger the star the more relaxed. The ones making the most demands were usually the B-listers, those who felt the need to exclaim something like: "You have to upgrade me! Don't you know who I am?"
