Al Roker and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Alex Van Halen[/lastfm] were on the same American Airlines flight from LA to New York on Monday. Al’s seat was in between Alex and his wife, Stine Schyberg. So, as you’d expect, Alex asked Al to switch. Sounds reasonable! Not so much. Al says NO. Why? He says he is allergic to dogs. If he switched seats, he would have been one seat closer to a poochie in a travel crate. (Mind you, he’d still be THREE seats away – instead of four.)
Sooooooooo, Alex and Stine actually moved from 1st class back to business class to sit together. The Van Halen drummer handled things VERY maturely. Very calm. No fighting. I wish I could say Al Roker was as mature.
