Why would I know? My guess is Former President's daughter > Kid actor.

Sat in 3A on flight 4660 from LGA to BNA. I sat in 3B. Very nice and personable. We shared a laugh as we deplaned when the FA told us, "good luck". We both decided that was an odd way to send someone off a plane

SAG contract was amended in 2011 to require only J, not F (unless there is no J than F).

Lucky you.

Al Roker is the poster child for why I don't watch TWC anymore.

TWC is now a very pale shadow of its (former) self.

First post in this thread that truly makes me jealous ;-). Would have loved to ask him for a high-five and get stared down in a "go away, a-hole" manner

I'm headed to LA; curious if he will be on that flight with me.

Yup ... He was in 1C, and "Busey-ed" it up the whole flight

I blame Gary Busey for this. My shower was Busey-ed. same night.

Idina Menzel at JFK walking through the terminal with a child. No big entourage.

Update: an hour later: Dennis Quaid, same place. By himself. A bunch of teenage girls walking in the other direction noticed him and started going crazy.

Francis Cardinal George and his two-person entourage - BA 297 LHR-ORD March 20. They were returning from the papal conclave, and it seemed to me that the cardinal went almost unnoticed, both in London and at T5 Chicago.

In which cabin was the cardinal seated? I know the Pope would be in economy. Curious if that has carried through to the cardinals.

Last time the pope flew (besides his helo ride), he was on a chartered plane, not too sure how this is a coach seat.

As the cardinal of buenos aires he was known to fly economy on his flights to Rome even though the church would pay for business.

Now that he is pope, he will not fly on a commerical (w/pax) plane.
