Anybody Ever Met Any Rich & Famous People Aboard?

Mon Aug 11, 2003 1:42 am

I'd like to know if anyone has ever run into any rich & famous people (Bill Gates, David Beckham, Tiger Woods, Oprah Winfrey, J. Lo, etc.) on any commercial airlines' aircraft. I've only heard that most of them use their own private aircraft but suspected that maybe a few might fly with the public? Can anybody please name any names, airline, aircraft registration & type, route flown, etc.? Thanks for any information regarding this.

I think only Jeff Bridges, on a BA flight from LAX last year...he was upstairs in Club class apparently. I would have loved to have met "The Dude"

Perhaps they were serving him a white russian?  Big grin

p.s. if you haven't seen "The Big Lebowski", you haven't lived........

My dad was on a plane with the Boston Celtics back when they flew on commercial planes. This was back in the 80s, so he got autographs from Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, etc etc.

He was in seat 2B, and I was in seat 2C. He gave me his boarding pass and signed it along with a Yankees pennet and a large baseball card that he gave to people he met.

I might have told this once before and it did not happen to me but it is still really cool. I love Dave Matthews and one girl told a story that she flew SEA-SFO on AS and sat near Dave...the coolest part was the next day she saw him again in a Starbucks in San Fransisco....

I met B.J. Habibie on a LH flight in the 80s. He was the Indonesian Minister for Research & Technology and later president of this God forsaken country.

Nice chap, he was walking through the economy section seeing his staff... I had a bit of a chat with him about planes Big grin

When I worked the gates at DFW for DL, I worked flights that included Hillary Clinton(before she was 1st lady), Gary Hart(long after the Donna Rice affair), B. B. King, Willie Nelson and Michael Keaton. I had to tell Ms. Clinton to get off the phone so we could leave. Michael Keaton's flight to LAX ended up being cancelled after he got on board due to a lightning strike on the inbound leg. Some of the people that went through DFW on DL when I was working that I did not get to see included Jimmy Carter and Christie Brinkley. All in all, just a normal pax to me.

Met many Malaysian MPs on BA's flights out of Kuala Lumpur when BA flew out of KL - very topical at the time for local Malaysian politics as MPs then had to fly MAS when on official business - so it was interesting to see them flying BA when on holiday!

I have also been on the same flights as...

1. The 1983 Brazillian football team flying KUL-HKG in Dec 1983 on MH10 (DC10-30). I even got a souvenir 'Wings of Gold' magazine signed by each player.

2. Morten Harket (of A-Ha fame) on a KUL-LHR flight - BA34 in 2000 or possibly 1999.

3. Sat next to Sir Norman Foster on an LHR-CPH flight (BA)

4. Trey Parker (MTV Europe/BBC VJ) and Katie Hill (ex-Blue Peter presenter) on a JAL flight to NRT Dec 2002 - but they were in Economy!

5. Natalie Imbruglia on a LHR-KUL flight with BA when BA33 flew onwards to SYD - where she was bound I expect.

6. I also flew on the same flight from SYD-BNE with the guy who played 'Tug' on Home and Away - can't remember his name.

7. A few others but can't remember them now... tend not to be star-struck with celebrities...

I sat one row behind Bruce Smith (Buffalo Bills, now Washington Redskins) way back in the early nineties. The flight was USAir from Buffalo to Baltimore...I was continuing on to West Palm Beach to see my grandparents. As a die hard Bills fan (this was the blown superbowl years), it was quite the thrill for me. He was very nice and I got an autograph from him. He's HUGE...I think he could have squashed me like a bug.

On my LHR-JFK Concorde flight a few weeks ago I saw Doris Day (seated in row 11 I think, the seats I had requested when I booked...darn! ), then on the way back home, on the LGW-VCE leg I saw the lead singer of Simply Red, Mick Hucknall board my plane (I was sitting a row behind him, in Club).

Then when I flew to Iceland via Amsterdam a couple of weeks later, I am almost sure I saw the singer Skin (of the former Skunk Anansie) sitting Business Class on the VCE-AMS, if it wasn't her it was someone with a really uncanny resemblance to her Big grin

Quite weird that I saw 3 celebrities (or 2 if the last one was just me seeing things) within 2 weeks...

I was on a flight with Lionel Richie, it was a BA connector flight from Belfast to Manchester, in a BAe ATP.

I also worked a flight with the Canadian group Sugar Jones, but they are not well known outside the country.

There was another flight at the airline I worked for in which Nelly Furtado was on the flight. I didn't work this flight, but there was some trouble. Before boarding, while the crew was preparing the aircraft for departure, her manager came down the jetway and casually said "hi, I'm here to hijack the aircraft" at which point the crew, who was not in the mood for the joke, called security and he was taken away.  Smile

My home airport of Waterbury Oxford (OXC) is home to many private jets belong to extremely rich and famous people. My flight instructor got to see Cindy Crawford when her Gulfstream 4 landed. She was apparently very nice as she spent 5 minutes talking to him while he drooled
A few weeks ago Donald Rumsfeld (United States Secretary of Defense) paid a visit coming in on an unmarked Air force Gulfstream Aerospace C-37A Gulfstream V (G-1159D)(90402).

Well, most memorable were Eddie Rickenbacker and Paul Tibbets, but that was up in the front office (for fun, not work). "Personality"-wise in the back of the bus were Arthur Godfrey (FAA had hiccupped his license after the DC3 stunt), and actors Robert Mitchum and John Wayne. My Dad's friend, Jackie Gleason, "toured" the cockpit and cabin of Cp'n Eddie's first new Super Connie w/ us @ MIA, but as you all probably know, would never fly (he leased coaches on Atlantic Coast Line (Seaboard Airline RR?) and Santa Fe for his cross-countries). Liberace's brother, George, was a seatmate on a short stint out of Vegas w/ me and was a delightful, gracious gentleman, as also was Edward G. Robinson, two flights by coincidence in and out of LAX. Got a helicopter flight w/ Sammy Davis, Jr., too, but that was in the US Army.

More recently, comedian George Carlin had the entire cabin in stitches from GRR to ORD, and actor Leslie Nielson tried to deal my buddies' wife on a LAX-DTW flight. Neat, fun, and educational memories...Jack
all best; jack

I flew on a flight from FARO (LPFR) to LISBON (LPPT) on PGA portugalia Airlines

He was very kind to me... offered me a T-shirt, and a postal with is singnature and dedicatory to my girlfriend... very kind and good person... i always loved some of their musics, now i also love his personality, some famous people are arogant and don't talk to strangers... THis was not the case... very nice he was... Short flight... but very nice!

ohh almost forgot... that day instead of the traditional cookies, they served a very delicious ice cream.... with chocolat and nuts... hummm Big grin

I have never met anyone famous on a commercial flight, but a lady who used to live in my neighborhood(she has since moved) was working for U.S Airways Express at the time as a Flight Attendant, and on a flight from either Florida or MYR to CLT she had JFK Jr. onboard, said he was a very nice guy.

I wish I could have been you. I dream of a day like that spending a 6 hour flight with the Goddess herself.



On a DTW-MCO flight, I had Robert Porsche of the Detroit Lions on the flight

Years ago flying from DTW-TPA on NW, Macho Man Randy Savage, Miss Elizabeth and the wrestler Hercules from the WWF were on my flight.

Not too long ago I had Naomi Campbell (model) on my JFK-GRU flight.She was sitting in First class and was very nice.I was suprised because Ive heard many bad things about her from other F/As and from the Newspapers.

Not exactly onboard an aircraft, but I was flying my qualifying cross country in a 152 and had to land at Cambridge.

While I sat in the GA building a jaguar pulled up in the car park, and Delia Smith and her husband came in. Turned out she was about to board a King Air outside to fly up to Sheffield to see a Norwich City football match!

Very pleasant person to talk to, and she wished me luck for the remainder of my flight before getting on the King Air and jetting off up to Sheffield!!

I met the following ones..

Jasmin Wagner on LH flight FRA-HAM, two rows behind me in coach.
Mola Adebesi on LH flight JFK-FRA, he was in Business Class
(I think both are only known by german people, they are local "stars")

I also met Jürgen Weber (Lufthansa) while boarding LH flight HAM-FRA, in fact he was kicking my feets  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

And don't forget Michael Jordan on LH flight JFK-FRA, but unfortunately that was only the name of the flight attendant and he had nothing to do with basketball...
