Very pleasant to everyone and unassuming. ^



She had airline / airport chaperones at all three airports, which she didn't appear to really want. This kind of help seems to me maybe to infantalise people - as if they can't get through an airport or security by themselves.

I wasn't on that flight although it seems FT's Markie did have some issues on BA 1 that day-

Two on my flight LAX > LHR today. Warwick Davis of both Willow and Harry Potter fame AND Tim Roth. I was 5a, Davis was 2a and Roth was 5k. He and I shared a chat while waiting for the bathroom to change out of our pajamas.

In the CCR yesterday were Chris Martin, from Coldplay and Kate Winslett, looking beautiful as always, with her new beau.

I do always wonder that if they were not flying F, would BA still give them access to the CCR?

Has just started showing from the beginning of season 1 on Sky Atlantic if you have it. Friday nights I think. Only a couple of episodes in so far so should probably be able to find them repeated or on anytime (again if you have it)

Kind of always wondered, do most of these A-listers duck straight into a cabana or do they just hang out in the CCR like the rest of us.

No doubt special services escort them to the plane.
