No kidding. Dude needs better sponsors. I saw Daniel Berger who, best I can tell, is mediocre on a good day loading up in a PC-12 at Jacksonville-Craig after the Players. Huge Nicholas Air logo on his bag, and surprise surprise, his Pilatus was operated by the same. Much nicer ride.

Just saw this thread, but in early February I ran into Common (rapper/actor) in the ONE cabin (upgrade) on a 767 redeye from LAX to JFK.

Literally ran into him. I was making my way up to use the restroom near the cockpit before departure, and he was one of the last to board. Was squeezing by past him, looked up, and recognized him. "Oh...Hey!" is all I could muster up. At least he said hello back.

not that I could tell....Colbert was upgraded into FC and Caroline was stuck in Comfort + (GIDS confirmed COL/S was upgraded but Caroline didn’t make it up front).

These threads always crack me up, because:
1) Who I think is a celeb and who you may think are way different and
2) I don't really pay attention unless they are seated next to me and
3) I live in flyover country, and not too many A-listers fly out of/in to Milwaukee.

But I'll post anyway.

I guess my 'best' ones were:
1) Sitting next to Corbin Bernsen - was on LA Law. (And the 'Q' on Star Trek TNG, where I also knew him from). Nice guy.
He got yelled (ok, scolded) at by FA for laptop in seatback - we were going LAX-SLC (or vice versa). He was really nice.
2) Only good for Packer's fans, so I won't even say the name - he was the inventor of the Lambeau Leap. He slept the entire trip (ATL-MKE),
and I may have taken a selfie with him sleeping

Flying to/from west coast I am just happy if I get an upgrade, and don't look around too much.

Oh, and one more at YVR if you like/ever saw the TV show Supernatural (Jared Padaleki). Got to talk to him for a bit.

1. John de Lancie was “Q” but I’m sure he’s a nice guy too.

2. As long as you kept you hands to yourself your selfie isn’t creepy. Good job

Corbin Bernsen also played Q for an episode in Season 3.
