Or, in the rest of the English-speaking world, a bodyguard.

I think Rob Ryan at DFW --- looked like him from the back waiting in line for Hagen Dasz

Mr. Quentin Tarantino and SO in the LHR T3 BA F lounge. I'm guessing he doesn't like the LHR AA FL either.

Saw the Miami Heat's Pat Riley on 02/20 heading from MIA to LAX. He and his wife were tucked away in 6A and B on a 763. Heading out to speak at his former boss' (Jerry Buss) memorial service.

D.L. Hughley

Actor/comedian D.L. Hughley Sunday in 2G on AA 2421, the mid-morning 763 DFW-LAX. He read a book the entire time and kept to himself. According to IMDB, his father was an aircraft maintenance worker...perhaps his dad worked/works for AA?

Joan Rivers and Dule Hill at LAX AA F Lounge on Monday night, Feb 25th. Madam Rivers got a lot of personal attention from the AA staff..

Would have missed them, but we were severely delayed due to the high winds in AUS. Definitely not worth the 12 extra hour delay to catch a red-eye to DFW..

Rick Springfield on AA 137 LHR-LAX (Feb 20) in 12D.

I was in 12E.

His sound guy (Matty Spindel) was in 12G.

Returning from the Sound City show.

We didn't really talk but he was not a bad celeb to be sandwiched in between. I talked a little to Spindel about Global Entry and PreCheck.

Went through security with Al Pacino at LAX T4 last Friday. He was really friendly. Went into the AC but then I lost him when I went into the FL. I was surprised he was not in there preflight. Must be another celeb room within the LAX AC?
