Mike Rowe JFK to AUS

Last year, Mike was attending an event in Austin and I met him in the boarding line with his assistant. Nice guy. Worked the whole flight.

Did he do a “Dirty Jobs” segment on the guy who has to suck the crap (literally) out of the lav after the flight?

Steve Stevens (Billy Idol’s guitarist) was in Delta One on DL141 (BRU-JFK) yesterday.

Also spotted Joe Elliott (Def Leppard) heading to his gate while I was waiting to board.

I think they’d both played at Graspop festival in Belgium over the weekend.

In my years with DL, I've met, seen on my flight, or sat by the following:
  1. Dikembe Mutombo (hilarious to see him in a seat)
  2. Seth Rogen
  3. George Wallace (comedian)
  4. Snoop Dogg
  5. Hank Aaron (sat beside me. Classy gentleman)
  6. Mario Andretti
  7. Dolly Parton
  8. Ted Danson
  9. Richie Sambora
  10. Jon Bon Jovi
  11. Cheech Marin
  12. Anthony Bourdain
  13. Frank Thomas
  14. Allan Jackson
  15. Bart Starr
  16. Kenny Stabler
  17. Joe Theismann
  18. Quest Love
  19. Kevin Nealon
  20. Tyreke Evans
  21. Steve Cohen (Congressman from TN famous for his KFC Bucket). Although our politics differ, he was a nice guy. We were complaining about airline seat space, and then he sponsored that bill. "You're welcome FT! " LMAO!!!

The "aide" was likely a Capitol police officer who was flying armed as Schumer's security detail.

Mike Epps is in front of me DL1436 Delta One
From LAX - JFK this morning. Very friendly.
I saw a black female actress he was talking to, but I don't recall her name in 1D.

When I landed at JFK. I saw Sarah Huckabee's daughter getting the VIP treatment at the B concourse Sky Club.

Met Hank Aaron years ago as a kid during a baseball signing event. Took the time to talk and interact with the kids and adults. Very classy man. One of the nicest people Ive ever met

Evander Holyfield was on DL 2336 CLT-ATL this morning seated in C+. He was number one on the upgrade list though. Presumably he'd been in Charlotte for the pre-season Bills/Panthers game as his son plays for the Panthers.
