Liam Neeson in the CCR at JFK last night, and then in 4K on a quite delayed BA182.

Maybe he was in invisible Jedi mode and you were too 'Taken' aback by the row 1seat

Was the flight delayed before or after you boarded?
Were you allowed to stay in the CCR that late? or they kicked you out... ?

I got a text around 1600 local time advising the original departure time of 0015 had been changed to 0215. The CCR remained open until boarding was called around 0200.

Indeed, we were told pretty early via text and email. Apparently a lightning strike on the outbound flight and ensuing maintenance. Upcoming question in Ask the staffer.

The CCR stayed open until boarding indeed. They very politely asked whether they could close the kitchen around 1am, but otherwise no issue.

On the 28th February on BA1486 LHR to Glasgow was seated behind Kelly Holmes in the cheap seats. We both had booked the extra legroom rows but were thwarted by a change of aircraft. She also had a very young baby with her that can only have seen a few weeks old. I was not convinced it was her until a saw the attention she got from the crew - even got an escort to baggage reclaim. Seemed throughly nice but also private.

I assume she was on her way to the European Indoor event in Glasgow.

Ruth Langsford of This Morning / Loose Women fame was part of the cabin crew doing in flight service on BA1396 LHR-MAN / BA1403 MAN-LHR today. She didn't do much on 1403 but pictures are around of her serving on 1396. Part of some segment for Loose Women in the next few weeks.

Princess Tessy of Luxembourg on yesterday's BA73 LHR > AUH.

Not that I recognised her or anything, but noticed AUH special services waiting for her with a sign at the aircraft door.

Ahh yes. Exactly what you want for discrete travel.
