So is there a convention this week for washed up 90's comedians?

I was on the same flight. Noticed that he had a Dodgers duffle, and a personalized Red Sox name tag. Nothing from the Marlins though!

Jimmy Fallon at the JFK flagship lounge this morning. I was going into the elevator to catch my flight as he was coming out.

Dan Marino right now in ORD HK club. Spotting him was a treat for me; #13 was the closest thing I had as a young man to a sports idol.

Jessica Biel tonight, 6/30 just before 6pm, leaving the JFK Admirals Club (near Gate 40). And the answer to the obvious question is "Yes."

Dr. Wayne Dyer - DFW-OGG AA7 on June 30

Not sure if it really counts as a celebrity sighting if I had not idea who he was!

He was a very nice man who ended up sitting in the single F seat next to me when the wife of my original seat-mate made a stink about being separated from her beloved. Dr. Dyer and another passenger on the bulkhead row both moved around as the wife of my seat-mate was next to the pilot rest seat.(I was flying with my wife and son across the aisle).

Towards the end of the flight, I made small talk and asked where he lived and what he did. Simply stated that he was a writer and was coming back from speaking at an event in Toronto. Folks sitting across the other aisle heard him mention his name and recognized it.

Searched other threads and found that he gave up his seat in a similar situation on a SFO-OGG UA flight a few years back.

Baseball Hall of Famer Joe Morgan on AA 1544 from SFO to DFW on 7/10/13.

really wanted to shake his hand and tell him I was a big fan of Bill James

(For those that don't know, Morgan is a bit of a luddite in his opposition to the Moneyball type of baseball analysis, which was founded by James)

Could the person in front of him recline without bumping in to his adam's apple?
