His legs alone must be 4 feet long -- I presume he had an exit row ???

I now have it on display, suitably inscribed by the man himself

* note to self --- stop sounding like a stalker !!

I met Michael Palin too in 1992 on the LHR-MAN shuttle. He was flying up there to start the promotion of his Pole to Pole programme. He had his picture taken with me on the jetty at MAN. Nice guy.

Katie Price aka Jordon

Travelling in a party of 3 on BA1399 (MAN-LHR) today.
Sat in ~7A and was also seen in the MAN Terraces Lounge. Looks a lot nicer in the flesh than on TV!

As they were travelling in window seats in CW, one could say that Michael Palin was both in front of, as well as behind zippyboarder.

Michael Palin was travelling in front of him, but was still sitting behind his back, so how does one actually define "in front of/behind" in CW?

John Barrowman in Galleries South this afternoon. En-route LAX to South of France.

He was really selling the Virgin Atlantic experience on the phone to someone (must be his preferred TA airline!)

He should have been frog-marched out of the lounge for that!

The words "forward" (pronounced “for'ard”) and "aft" (pronounced “aft”) are very helpful in such circumstances.
