My boss sat next to Simon Birmingham on a flight to ADL right after the election. QF of course.
The Senator was very quiet... unsurprisingly ;)

I ran into him the day after that at a work appointment and I had to bite my tongue. I really wanted to give him a serve but he might come in useful again 🤣

Speaking of politics I’ve run into Antony Green 3 times now. The first time in the Sydney domestic QP I actually walked into him while leaving the bathroom. He’s much shorter then I’d imagined.

Christina Aguilera at LHR T5 First Wing being escorted through security by special services.

Didn’t stop some absolute DYKWIA from shouting out about “there’s a queue you know”
Obviously completely missed the special services accompanying her.
I was in the CCR shortly afterwards and didn’t see her so I assume that she boarded her aircraft after passing through security.

Tony Abbott and daughter in the Sydney F lounge this morning. They got up when the AKL flight was announced and then I couldn't see them in J. So I checked and they were in the front row of Y!

No inclination to say hello.
He normally flys Y on private trips.
