It looks like the CCR was busy today. Giles Coren was here with his family and just left.

Wife and 2 children? Were they all flying F? Surely Giles wouldnt use his position to expect / demand special treatment? ..

Probably an unfair comment given that we are on a forum with niche interests, that many on the outside would consider sad. People get inspired and excited by different things. Who are you to decide if its sad or not?

If you use social media Im pretty sure you will be following a celebrity of some sort. Is that sad too? Its the same as what people are doing here. Only on here people are following information specifically related to the hobby of flying, and BA.

I don’t use any social media and believe that everyone including well known people should have their privacy respected.

But if this thread (and predecessors) didn’t exist, I wouldn’t have had an obvious place to say I’d met you when we almost did.

Your own fault, wouldn’t leave Mrs CIHY alone with me . As it’s St Valentine’s Day I’ll say I think that’s very commendable and romantic.

Getting back on topic, Hannah Waddingham (probably best known from Ted Lasso) was on the BA172 from JFK last night.

You can't have an expectation of privacy when in a publicly accessible place. If you don't want anybody to know where you are or what you're doing, especially when you're well known, then stay at home

I'll be at MAN and LHR on Friday morning if anyone is interested
