The LAX-JFK route is chock full of celebs. I've sat next to or near a few over the past couple of years: Farrah Fawcett, Cher, Sandra Bullock, Courtney Cox-Arquette, William Baldwin, Grace Jones, Tom Brokaw, Marlowe Thomas. On different routes, I've had flights with Rosie O'Donnell, Ann Richards (then governor of Texas), Troy Aikman, Pete Sampras.

Nicest were Ann Richards and Tom Brokaw. Rudest by a landslide was Marlowe Thomas - she got in a big argument with a FA about who was going to put her carryons in the overhead.

Weirdest was definitely Farrah Fawcett. For the whole flight, she'd argue with her assistant for about 15 minutes and then stalk off to the lavatory. After about 20 minutes, the assistant would go knock on the door and beg her to come out, and after 10 minutes of that Farrah would return to her seat. Then the whole thing would start over again!

Oh, I almost forgot. Last March I flew JFK-LHR on AA with Fergie. She boarded at the last minute, slept the whole way, and was escorted from the plane by security. When we were all standing up to deplane, though, she bashed my friend in the head with her carry-on! She was quite apologetic, though my friend was too thrilled to need an apology... Fergie might not be a princess anymore, but she still gets to bypass immigration and customs. Her people led her down the jetway stairs to a waiting car with police escort and off they went.
