"convention" was that the "national airline" of the country he is visiting picks him up (whether paid for or 'given') and he flies home with Alitalia.

So it would be LH to Germany, BA to UK etc.

Not sure who carried the pope on last / these sort of US visits.

A minor celebrity today DFW to LAS -the Old Man from the show Pawn Stars was in 2E with his wife in 2F. I was in 4E. It appeared he slept most of the way, which if you watch the show is a running gag.

Interesting, because he was just in New York last week (4/12 & 4/13) for a major set of guitar festival concerts hosted by Eric Clapton. (We were there as well, so I know he was ).

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on LGA-ATL 4669 5/5, sighted exiting. An FA noted that one of them exhibited "don't look at me I'm a star" behavior.

Just saw Jim McMahon get into the Priority line for security in the AA terminal yesterday morning at O'hare. Wearing sunglasses and an FBI sweatshirt. That was kinda funny.

Mack Brown flying, oddly, DFW-IAH late night last week with his wife. I'm pretty sure he was a bit buzzed as he kept fawning on the F FA, who was wearing "Aggie Mom" stuff all over her uniform.

Tonight Dan Quayle from Lga to Stl in first. Came in late with what I assume was a CK agent. During taxi kept his blackberry on which rang twice and he checked email. FA pretended not to see it and I missed a great opportunity to say " Mr Vice President ( still the proper form of address?) your phone is still on". I kinda didn't want my 15 minutes of fame to be getting in the news for that so I stayed silent.

Edited to add: Mr. Quayle would have been correct.
