This of course was Jimmy Page.....no talk of wild times on the road or the works of Aleister Crowley.
Nothing to do with BA but Jimmy Page was a friend of one of the students in my hall of residence when I was at Uni back in the 80s. I used to go out with him a few times for evenings out - he always insisted on paying (cash!) and was genuinely a good guy to be around. No ego at all which was pretty impressive for the megastar he was.

Good point, well made. Doesnt take away from it being a little sad.

There was quite a queue for F check in when I arrived and the staff were redirecting pax in the queue to a couple of J check in desks. So I suspect this was the case.

Almost as sad as commenting on a topic you have no interest in, perhaps? Do you drive to the petrol station just to inform the staff that you, in fact, don't need to fill up?


I enjoyed reading the last few pages of this thread, keep it up guys

Indelicate of me to point out that you have mentioned meeting Pucci Galore on several occasions? Or is she more infamous?

Lets just say for example Rob Rinder and Sarah Willingham are having an affair, are these people not allowed a private life, how would you like your whereabouts publicly posted on the internet?
Im sorry you didnt enjoy reading my recent celebrity sightings, and might remind you such viewing is entirely something within your own discretion.

I imagine you were bound by some contractual obligation not to reveal what goes on, or whom you meet, as part of your employment contract?

i - as a fare paying member of the public - are not bound by any such obligations and will continue to post as I see fit.

its just a laugh and a much needed cheer-up CIHY.

Best regards to you all. BA_PAX x

Back to well-known people spotting: Bill Bailey on yesterday’s 107 to Dubai. Took a bit of messaging back to my young-adults to work out who he was.

I have empathy with CIHY on this one. Primarily because I never recognise "stars".

I took younger daughter to a soccer game one day. She spotted a famous comedian and a famous politician. "Why did you say that we won't see any famous people?".

Reply from me - "they are not famous people when they are soccer fans".

I think I might recognise Idris Elba, or Julie Christie, but that's about it.

However, I do like to read this thread!!

If you know the class of travel, would you mind sharing? This info is quite key in a thread about celebs
