Skip to comments.American Airlines: Alec Baldwin Was Epic Jerk (Twitter account "deactivated")

AA says, "Since an extremely vocal customer has publicly identified himself as being removed from an American Airlines flight on Tuesday, Dec. 6, we have elected to provide the actual facts of the matter as well as the FAA regulations which American, and all airlines, must enforce. Cell phones and electronic devices are allowed to be used while the aircraft is at the gate and the door is open for boarding."
"When the door is closed for departure and the seat belt light is turned on, all cell phones and electronic devices must be turned off for taxi-out and take-off."
"This passenger declined to turn off his cell phone when asked to do so at the appropriate time. The passenger ultimately stood up (with the seat belt light still on for departure) and took his phone into the planes lavatory. He slammed the lavatory door so hard, the cockpit crew heard it and became alarmed, even with the cockpit door closed and locked."
"They immediately contacted the cabin crew to check on the situation. The passenger was extremely rude to the crew, calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language. Given the facts above, the passenger was removed from the flight and denied boarding."

Alec Baldwin Calls Flight Attendants Retired Catholic School Gym Teachers From The 50s

I love to hear that audio clip that Hannity plays to make fun of Alec. It’s a clip of Alec trying to host a radio show. Hilarious, he’s as dumb as a rock.
Well good news for Alec is that the airline might not be around long. They just recently filed for bankruptcy. Anyway those flight attendants can be jerks for sure. Oh this is the airline that supports Oprah. I find that funny that some of you are siding with the airline. You all must love Oprah. lol.
I’m anti Alex Baldwin. Period.
Yet a multimillionaire. The only thing I find funny about Alec is his commercial about a credit card and (coincidentally) he is on a airplane and the card does not give the promises and he says, “isn't that annoying” or something like that. As far as movies he has done, I liked Malice and It's Complicated. All the rest are not great. Actually I only saw Pearl Harbor, the Hunt for Red October, and Elizabethtown. I cannot get into 30 Rock although I have seen it a few times but just can't get myself to love the show like many others.
Baldwin behaves exactly how he fantasizes the average conservative behaves.
Liar. (I will move to France if Bush Wins)
His ex-wife actually made that up. It stuck though. It seems like stories are made up whether republican or democratic....just ask Newt.
Who’s Alex Baldwin?
I wonder if he used his Capital One card for the extra miles?
Siding with the airline is not the whole issue here. He refused to follow the flight instructions given by ALL airlines in preparation for departure. We all have to turn off cell phones and laptops, other electronic devices until airborne. That is the issue, not the airlines picking on poor Alec Baldwin. He is a jerk for not following the request of the stewardesses/stewards. This is always temporary, until the flight is at the proper altitude once they have taken off. Why should he think that the rules are not for him? I don’t love Oprah, but I get irritated by those who delay flight departures and cause trouble because they don’t want to follow the rules, making problems for the rest of us. He is a jerk, plain and simple. It has nothing to do with the airlines, as it could’ve been any of them. It is his behavior, and it wouldn’t have been tolerated on any of them. At least AA didn’t try to coddle him. Give them credit for that!
Too bad that some of the co-passengers have not come forward to provide us with quotes of Baldwin’s cabin rants.
He is lucky TSA did not get involved given the security concerns since he locked himself in the bathroom and distracted the pilots as they were preparing for takeoff.
Strap Baldwin to the wing.
One of the best Airlines around, IMO.
I'll bet a lot of AA crew are FReepers.
