US/UK flight

Anyone trying to get from US to UK or vice versa; Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself on twitter) has chartered a flight from Newark-London-Newark http://bit.ly/dSga7
I think it's his travel agent who has chartered the flight; he's just a passenger.
Fair point. But I'm guessing more people have heard of Neil as opposed to his travel agent.

I was assuming this was because he needed to get a flight, is this not the case?
