Back when I joined here there was a story about someone who accidentally (I think it was a genuine accident!) chose Ambassador as their title in their BACE account. Apparently when landing at somewhere on the continent (perhaps FCO) they were met on the jetbridge by a delegation from either the British Embassy or some local diplomatic organization

Did anyone happen to see Emma Thompson fly in for the climate change protest?

What a hypocrite. Assume she wasn't at the back of plane either!

We had Charles Dance in First (1K) from London to Toronto last Sunday. He was friendly to those who spoke to him but did lay low. Toronto is now a big film location and production house as a pseudo east coast US lookalike location(and cheaper)
However, Canadian Immigration demonstrated it's commitment to equality as we passed him queueing for secondary immigration - presumably to get his work permit! (only available on arrival)

I believe I saw John Torode on last Tuesdays BA 56 from JNB to LHR - he was with his kids but back in Club World - did not expect that.
I don't normally follow him, but after looking at his Instargram account, he seems to have been to Victoria falls recently - so I guess my sighting could be quite correct. Did not see any special treatment for him as he was held back while us in First class was walking out. He was on the lower deck most probably front row seats as he was the first person with his kid behind the crew blocking them.

Cheers!

Brillo clearly sticks his wife in WTP while he consorts with scantily clad lady friends in CW or F.

I just went through the F Wing at LHR at the same time as Sir Cliff Richard - not sure if he then went to the CCR

Not sure if it counts if you weren't there, but looks like an FTer might have been, to note the champagne, food and seat choice!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-New-York.html

Summary of article:

Emma Thompson in 2F flying to NYC on a 4 class 777, the week after the extinction rebellion on Friday morning, while eating beef and sipping LPGS.

Non official summary:

Champagne socialism in action!
