Nice Celebs on AC FLights

I would have to say Julian Moore would be the nicest celeb on my flights I have also served Chantal Kreviazuk, Debbie Travis (painted house) as well as Colin Feore who played Pierre Elliot Trudeau in the movie he was on plenty of my YYZ-YUL flights...

A lot of Cilla Black Flak on this thread.

Personally I can't stand the woman and I hate her 'Plastic Scouser' act - especially since she has lived in Buckinghamshire for nearly 50 years.

She often works the words 'Fair Hair' into a conversation but pronounces it 'Fur Hur' for full scouser effect. Can someone try to get her to say the word 'Fare' (on check in?) just to see if she really pronouces it that way - I bet she doesn't

George Best. I was just a passenger, but the two of us got trapped in an LHR Terminal 1 gangway, behind a sliding glass security screen, just before boarding a flight to Glasgow. We both tried to press the glass all over to make the screen open. It was very surreal and he was very funny. A memory that will stick with me a lifetime. RIP!

Polar Explorer - A Right ****

How about this one.
That Pen Hadow! Didnít listen to his pre-flight announcements. Didnít follow safety instructions or obey safety procedures. Goes to the papers moaning that he wasnít Ďreassured Ďby the pilots at the same time they are trying to solve a major problem.

If anyone bumps into him give him the report on the Helios crash. Thatíll keep him up in his tent at night up in the North Pole.

Give me Cilla any day.

Had Lauren Hutton on my flight, awesome lady, laid back, we had a great chat about when she used to fly in Africa back in the day. Didn't realise who she was at the time but she just fits right in.

It will always be Dame Shirley Bassey for me, when i handed her a biscuit to have with her tea, she tapped my hand and said "ooo, you are naughty!". Plus Dame helen Mirren, tiny in real life, just read the tory-o-graph but was very polite. There's nothing quite like a Dame...

David Coulthard - had him twice on board - so nice chap, a real gentleman

Jean-Claude Van Damme - was in economy on a flight from BRU to NCE some years ago, during the Cannes Festival. He tried whatever he could to be upgraded in business, but it didn't work Made me open all the "tax free" items during the flight, and eventually didn't buy anything. Guess he was under the influence of any illegal substance. So arrogant ! His wife was nice though.

Dora Bryan ( how far back do you want to go ! ) Entertained us on the flt. deck, diverted to Manchester, refused to take the bus to Crewe to get the train to London ( spent me life hanging around Crewe Station, luv. ) insisted on coming to the crew hotel, and joining the after flight party, gave me tickets to her pantomime ( she was Mother Goose ).Relayed the whole episode to Pete Murray ( or was it Jimmy Young ? ) on Radio 4 the following week and even mentioned me by name !!! Normal and fun.

I have to disagree about Dame Shirley Bassey. I was a fellow passenger with her on a flight to JFK. She drove the cc mad with her demands. Wearing next to nothing, she constantly complained of being cold; so the cabin temperature was increased and the rest of us roasted.

Nicest people I have met during my career were the Duke of Westminster and Prince Michael of Kent. Despite their money and status, they were true unassuming gentlemen.

Visiting the cabin...

As a pilot, I occasionally went to the cabin to shake hands with VIPs or celebrities.
xxx
In the Anglo-Saxon world... my favorite was actor John Ritter (TV show "Three is company"). Had him on flights 3 times... As a passenger, he made me laugh more than I would have laughed watching his TV shows. Really, John Ritter must have been a nice guy in day-to-day life. Sorry he died so young.
xxx
The one I disliked (top of list) was Bob Hope. So popular then, but a real SOB with no humor in real-life. Only had him on board once, flight JFK to LHR. He was sitting in F class with Mrs Hope. I introduced myself as the co-pilot. His answer was "well, boy, want dont you go back to the cockpit to keep an eye on your captain"... Mrs Hope rolled her eyes... I saw she wanted to apologize for the "kind words"... All cabin staff told me same about Bob Hope...
xxx
Finally... never was on my flight, but met her on the cargo ramp in Nairobi.
Audrey Hepburn... my favorite actress.
She was with UNICEF. I was flying a Cargolux plane - 1992.
After landing, a ramp agent said "Captain, someone to see you"...
Who knows me in Nairobi...?
Went down the plane with my bags... There was a tiny little lady there.
Other people with her, and TV cameras...
I recognized her, that was Audrey Hepburn, my idol...
UNICEF wanted her to appear on TV with crew of airplane flying relief supplies.
What is your name, captain... where from...?
I said "originally from Brussels, Miss Hepburn, you were born there".
She switched from English to French, and to Dutch, for 10 minutes...
And when she left, she hugged me... My favorite movie star hugged me...
She passed away less than a year later. I cried...
xxx

Happy contrails

Nicole Kidman gets people thrown off set if they look her in the eye and they're important enough to be allowed to do so
I might disagree there, having met her without having a clue who she was until later. I was staying at the Copacabana Beach hotel in Rio, March 1994, and went for a swim in the pool. There was only one other person by the pool, so I thought it would be rude not to say hello. So I went over and started chatting. I had absolutely no idea who she was (I'm not celeb conscious at all) and she was really nice, friendly and intelligent. At one point I asked why she was in Rio, and she replied that "her husband was promoting a film". Not wanting to talk about her husband, I changed the subject. It was only the next day when driving back to the airport that I saw a whole load of posters for a Tom Cruise film (can't remember which one) that I worked out who I had been talking to.

We had the entire Man U team and staff aboard not long ago. All as nice as pie except Gary Neville. Complete co*k and very much "don't you know who I am?" even though he was surrounded by the likes of Ronaldo, Rooney, Fergie, Sir Bobby & co.

Having some experience around the TV/movie industry. I can back up some of the comments here. Julianne Moore was mentioned a couple of times and I can confirm she is absolutely lovely. Kim Cattrall was very nice too. An extra told me of how he was filming in a hotel and happened to know the manager. A good looking blonde woman came over and joined the conversation and they had a pleasant chat. Later when he went to film the scene he realised who she was. He had no idea.

Pierce Brosnan seemed pleasant enough but with a tendency for sarky jokes. Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Henry VIII), very pleasant and unlike other actors would queue in the studio canteen like everyone else despite having a nice trailer to hide in.

Haven't really seen bad behaviour. But had heard that Mickey Rourke was obnoxious and actually actually trotted out the 'Don't you know who I am' line.

I'm not cabin crew (engineer) but I was asked if Glen Close could sit in the F/class during the turn round to aviod the Media. She was ugly enough to scare a police horse and was a troll. Helped out U2 when their plane was tech, they treated me worse that the RAC, dito for the pilot of the Guns N Roses B727. The cabin looked as if someone had let a grenade off in it, complete with bodies everywhere in various states of alchol/substance abuse. Slash could qualify as an avionics engineer as he didn't have a scooby doo where/what he was.
