    I see Hollywood stars don't limit themselves to the usual transatlantic airlines.

    Anyone ever spotted/traveled with the rich and famous while flying Biz/First? I suppose it must happen quite a lot, but I tend to walk around with my eyes closed (figuratively...usually). LA to Paris a while ago (Air Tahiti Nui!) there was a couple of obvious model/actress types I got chatting to for a bit, but it I think I was supposed to know who they were, so it seemed a bit rude to ask...

    Judging by the 'celebs on BA' thread on Flyertalk, their transatlantic route from LA to London is a hotbed for A Listers. In First, of course! :)

    We saw Chris Hemsworth (Thor/James Hunt) in the lounge at LHR couple of years ago. Had to remind my wife she was married, and that I was right next to her!

    Ask for a picture with them, then you can figure out who they are (if anyone) later. Only potential problem here is if they aren't famous and just a couple of pretty young ladies on holiday, then you just look creepy.

    No, we were slumming it in Club World that day. It was the Galleries lounge in T5B.

    Haha, no I was playing it cool... or something.

    Actually that's clearly a lie now I think about it - My chief memories of that flight are drinking far too much champagne (standard), being repeatedly told by LA lovelies how great my accent is (fairly standard in that part of the world), and eventually crashing out while watching hit DIsney musical 'Frozen' (not standard, I promise. I don't remember singing, so it could have been worse!).

    Generally speaking, I have a strict no photos policy when it comes to celebrities, following what should only be described as an unfortunate incident involving Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Bobby Charlton, a small bar in Malta, and my then boss...

    I had an unfortunate incident with Roger Moore. Not his fault, but it put me off seeking photos.

    Kate Moss was in the lounge/on our HK-LHR BA flight last year. We'd sneaked our way into Business Class using the BA Amex companion voucher.

    We didn't ask for a photo, and in light of:

    "an unfortunate incident involving Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Bobby Charlton, a small bar in Malta, and my then boss..."

    and

    "an unfortunate incident with Roger Moore. Not his fault, but it put me off seeking photos"

    It was probably for the best :)

    Come on Aileen, this has more than a hint of spam to it.
