Apparently the F lounge at SFO was locked off - some suggestion it was done so for him, rather than the usual reason of over-crowding. I was in the Cathay lounge so didn't see it.

He was met on the airbridge at T5 by armed police - I'm told there was a car on the tarmac for him, though I didn't see it myself.
Do you know why he was arrested?

European Ryder Cupper Thorbjorn Olesen appeared to be a bit hungover in 2A on BA 319 from CDG-LHR yesterday afternoon. He was seated next to Indian industrialist Dilip Thomas who is playing in the Dunhill Links. Also on the flight were Justin Roseís caddie and a retired R&A exec I didnít catch the name of. Had a great chat with a few of them in the Cathay lounge prior to departure.

Tony Abbott was in the T5 Flounge around 12PM today. Sadly didn't have a whole onion on hand to make sure it was _really_ him...

In F with Michael Kors and partner, landed this morning from JFK (BA176).

Seemed remarkably down down to earth- only requested water and a pair of slippers! Met off the airbridge by special services.
