He used to fly around in a Gulfstream. The 747 was an investment vehicle, it was leased back to an airline.

On one hand some people would argue flights like these (for a quick meeting) are unnecessary and environmentally harmful
But on the other hand he was not in a private jet...so...

Interesting that artists looking to find a visual for first class use the A380 F

The legend Roger Federer in ZRH FCL-E three days ago on my way back to ORD. I didn't get to know where he is flying to

To the #3 place on the GOAT list!

(Sorry, the Serb in me is too strong.)

I hope he took the terminal train so that he could say I need more Cowbell!

(if you know his Saturday Night Live skit from years ago)

It was on Swissair, so not LH Group, many many years ago. A Swiss minister aka Bundesrat. (Arnold Koller for who remembers). Not such a celebrity though as Walken or Federer.

My boys have Miroslav Klose's autograph because he was on the same FCO-FRA flight as my mum.

She had no idea who he was but other people were making a fuss so she figured he was somebody important and asked him to sign something anyway. 🤪

Especially not Koller .

I am impressed that you recognized you. I'd not recognized any Federal Council in the wild.

maybe not such a widely recognised public figure, but probably with further reaching (legal) impact than most others. There are very few people to have an entire law named for them.

[Excuse the paparazzi-style picture]

Hugh Grant (and partner), VIE-LHR (this was last spring), seat 3A. Admittedly, I only spotted/recognised him after "detecting" some rather unusual activity in the business cabin, meaning pretty much the whole plane approaching his seat during the entire flight, I guess all due to word-spreading. He also spent some time (on separate occasions) in the galley area chatting and taking selfies with cabin crew/other passengers, nonchalantly holding his glass of white wine as he moved back-and-forth from/to his seat.



Finally and for those who are familiar with the political mess settings of this country (i.e. Bosnia-and-Herzegovina), Šefik Džaferović (chairman of the current presidency), flying SJJ-VIE(-BRU), seat 2A; his staff, made of roughly 10 people, flew economy and they all sat in the rows immediately behind the curtain.
