I was in the BD lounge at Belfast with him and he was indeed eating Walker's crisps which had some competion on the packet with his picture.

I've been in the CCR a few times and have never seen a celeb in there.

Sounds like it may be better on the weekends for celeb spotting.

Looks like it is the place to go, wonder if the celebs are spotting other celebs (FT members)

George Clooney having breakfast in the CCR, although he was whisked off by SS as soon as I sat down - must have been something I said :-)

Let's not be stereotypical. He's probably playing football on the Concorde Terrace.

Seat shifted by a Premier !!!!! Outrageous

Checked in for my BA8716 LCY - EDI on Friday to be told that my 2A I had booked was now 15c (not happy as a Gold)

Asked why, and was told there had been a change of aircraft, but looking at the seatmap it was the same config so was curious but suspected a VIP as the lady said she couldn't tell me any more other than some rows had been blocked out.

On boarding we were told there was only boarding from the back, and then when we boarded I saw who was in my seat - a Premier, David Cameron !!!!

I have to admit that if I'd not been seat shifted you wouldn't have known that he was even on-board. There was a strange moment where we taxied out onto the runway and then taxied back - apparently a passenger had been 'offloaded for security reasons' (I can only assume they didn't want him on the same flight as Dave, but they were worried they'd offloaded the wrong bags.

At the EDi end he quickly disembarked, no delay or anything and no huge entourage.

Whether you voted for him or not - good to see him on scheduled airlines !

And clearly you can get seat shifted by a Premier

Do you think he is also gold? Just remember that Kofi Annan had/has a gold card

James Bond and the Saint in one

I once sat across from Roger Moore on a flight from New York to London.

He ended the flight on the PA advertising the Save the Children fund of which he's a patron and asking for those little paper wallets to be filled with loose change.

Who could argue with James Bond?!

Also had the pleasure of Renee Zellweger's company from Boston (she was delightful!), the great scrum half Dewi Morris from Manchester to London and s......ed from behind at the growing bald patch of Morrissey on another hop to LHR from Manchester.

Why the redaction???

Not quite sure why my s.......d has been taken out? It wasn't anything rude, just a way of saying 'a sly or disrespectful laugh, especially one partly stifled'

Maybe they thought I was a racist with bad typing skills...
