I sat a couple of rows behind them on 219 CPH-LHR that evening. They came on quietly right before the door closed and settled into Row 1. If you had been a few rows back, you would never have known they were on there.

They're forever shortening people's names: I've been "Jay"'d (for James), heard a "More" for Maureen, plus the more obvious Mands, Shirls, Tels etc. i must confess to quite liking this variant, but agree Wozzas, Jezzes and so forth are rather tedious. Can I join in the honorary grumps society
nothing more cockney than calling one of your mates Jezza rather than Jeremy.

It's also very confusing for non-English speakers as well... hopefully people will spell out the names properly in the future.

I love Eddie Izzard!! Seen him here in LA a couple of years back and loved the show. But "dressed to kill" is still my favourite. Btw he has quite a following here in US and tickets are usually hard to come by.

John Humphrys on my flight to ATH on Friday, sitting next to me in 1A and also on my flight back today, but he was in row 2.

Lord Ashdown waiting for his luggage from a GVA flight this evening.

We were sitting a few seats down from David Brent on the Concorde Room Terrace on November 6th. I guess he's doing pretty well for himself after that documentry they shot of him a few years ago.

Nice hit ... at least most people have heard of them, and know what they do. Well, one of them anyway.

I heard the following 3rd hand.....

Last week, Susan Boyle was in F between BKK and LHR.

SUBO introduced herself to the other F passengers, although many did not know who she was, apparently.

At breakfast, she burst into tears because she did not like the sausage - it was the wrong colour!

As we know, she is not the only Scot to have had issues with BA F sausages!

A colleague spotted her in Galleries *Club* at LHR last Friday, early morning.
