Wow. Stunned at the bitter/sarcastic response to a first post.
I did state I wouldn't get into it for in this section CannonBall. Apologies to your brain cell. MOST of the post was directed at the topic.

Way more laid back and low profile than I expected.

My dog and I were 3 rows ahead of him wondering why the "new" first class still did not have individual monitors....but that's another thread .
That's because the "new" first class is about six years old.

Don't know why she didn't spring for F out of her own pocket, but the new SAG-AFTRA contract no longer compels F if C is available.

Conchata Ferrell of "Two and a Half Men" was across the aisle from me in first on 1273 CMH-DFW on May 12. A couple people stopped to talk to her while passing her seat during boarding, and she was very gracious to them, but seemed to prefer being left alone. Interestingly, her carry-on had her name, address and phone number written directly on the carry-on instead of a luggage tag so it was easy to read.

No longer *compels*, that's true, but agents for individual performers can certainly negotiate F and not J and a history of verifiable deals guaranteeing F in the past would likely determine a working actor (or writer, producer, etc) will continue to get F, contractually. Those who have regularly traveled in F in the past, assuming they've worked steadily, will likely continue to travel F in the future although, of course, it's always about what one can negotiate.

What is a NEW 763? Doesn't belong under this topic - but I may have missed a memo (or two, or brain cells)

If you really wanted to freak her out (and also show your age!) you should have asked her to reminisce about Hot L Baltimore.

Apparently, one that was made in the last 20 years.

LOL

Will have to post again after I land and can check www.imdb.com. On LAX JFK 180 today that had to turn back to LAX for emergency landing. But tons of talent on plane. Back on plane with a scheduled 3am landing.

Update - with help of IMDB - Poppy Montgomery of " Without A Trace" and familial/service entourage, Paige Davis (Trading Spaces on HGTV I think, married to Patrick Davis of Turn Off the Dark/Spider-Man on Broadway) and the other couple I can't place the names with the face. Milla or Milan something and her husband David. Both from Australia. Embarrassing since I chatted with them the entire flight.
