I have seen a heap of politicos on board DL aircraft. If you want to go celeb-spotting, book a seat on a flight leaving DCA on a Friday afternoon when Congress is in session, around 2 PM or so. Some Congresscreature or other will soon appear at your gate.

I sat next to Jack Kemp in F a few years back from ATL to IAD. Sat near some Kennedy or another out of BOS once.

On one of my DCA-ATL flights, passenger Jimmy Carter walked back through the aircraft, shaking everyone's hand, once the door was closed. There was a grim Secret Service agent (the size of said door) three steps behind him the whole way. Of Mr. Carter, an FA told me "he does that whenever he flies with us."

I have never spotted a musician or movie star on board.
