It's weird, I've been on literally hundreds of flights over the last few years and spend scores of hours in lounges, yet I'm not aware of ever having recognised a single fellow traveller (apart from teledude in the T3 FLounge the other week )
SkyTeem and TheOldMan like this.

I'm with you on that one Fitch.. hours in lounges, hundreds of flights and only once I see Jim Davidson in the queue for security at T5. We probably spend too much time reading the newspaper.

Youíre probably like myself and just donít recognise or notice celebs. Once spent an afternoon in an Irish bar in NYC watching England play on the TV (incidentally Scotland were on the TVs at the other end of the bar. Canít imagine that happening in the UK) spent the whole morning gdrinking with a guy at the bar who told me he was in a band called Kasabian. Meant nothing to me until I mentioned it to my grown up kids and apparently they are quite famous.

I think you're probably right. My partner often accuses me of walking around "eyes wide shut" - clearly she has a point

An American mate of mine once sat next to "some guy called Paul Weller who's in a band" on a Concorde flight from JFK and was completely oblivious to being in the company of the Modfather.

Colin Firth in the Concorde Room just now. Wearing a silly hat by way of disguise. Suspect he will be taking it off soon given the usual insanely warm temperature.

Was on his way to Nice I think.

Looking forward to the F1 season starting again so can do some more celeb spotting haha. One of the better ones was LHR>AUH a couple of years ago - I was sitting near Ron Dennis and Jonathan Neil of McLaren and ex-drivers Mark Webber and Johnny Herbert in J.

r.e. Ron Dennis - I've never seen someone wearing such shiny black shoes. And in a suit (not a single crease) with his tie with the perfect knot and at the precise angle, obviously.
