Presumably J, as he was not in F, but pre-boarded with premium passengers. (I suppose it's possible he was in economy, but that strains credulity.)

Not sure who carried the pope on last / these sort of US visits.
I thought the pope flew on a specially-fitted Alitalia charter.

I know this barely qualifies as "celebrity", but "Teen Mom" and newly minted adult, um, actress Farrah Abraham apparently pulled a DYKWIA with an LAX gate agent over an oversized duffel bag:

Perhaps we need a sub-thread entitled "Skanks Enjoying Their 15 Minutes of Fame Sightings on American Airlines"?

A bit OT but speaking of.. I was just watching his show "No Reservations - Madrid, Spain" and at the 22min mark he is holding his AA PLAT card. You can see the back of it with the phone numbers.

John Lithgow sitting in the SFO club right now waiting on the delayed flight to LAX. I couldn't help but laugh to myself thinking about that scene of him in the Twilight Zone with him looking at the creature out on the wing...and it's raining in San Francisco! I wonder if he has a window seat?

That would be one flight I'd be glad not to be in F. There is no bigger tool in the music industry. Most punchable face in music.

Paul Walker exiting the AC in Terminal D at DFW earlier today. As he exited the club he thanked the club staff. Seemed like a nice, genuine guy.
