American Airlines flight attendants want the carrier to strike back at angry actor Alec Baldwin by removing the stars hit NBC show 30 Rock from all in-flight entertainment.
The peeved flight attendants, backed by their union, also want Baldwins bold-faced name to be added to the carriers no-fly list for his door-slamming, profanity-laced temper tantrum Tuesday.
Were very upset. He was very malicious and slanderous toward crew members in his comments, American flight attendant Lonny Glover, the safety and security spokesman for the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, told the Daily News Thursday.
The union will not be asking the feds to place Baldwins name alongside those of suspected evildoers on the federal no-fly list but they want the Federal Aviation Administration to slap him with a fine.
Glover said the union would drop its demands if Baldwin who has vowed to never again fly American Airlines makes a public apology to the crew for the tirade that got him booted off of a flight.
Alec sympathizes with the many hardworking, dedicated employees of American Airlines and elsewhere who are facing cuts to pensions and pay and difficult working conditions, a friend of Baldwins told The News.
The friend reiterated Baldwins previous claim that he was singled out and picked on by a flight attendant the actor described as a 1950s gym teacher.
Glover said Baldwins colorful characterization of the airline worker was laughable.
The flight attendant is one of the nicest, sweetest ladies, Glover said, noting that Baldwin was using his smartphone against cabin rules.
She told him no less than three times he needed to put away his device.
He broke federal aviation regulations that are in place for a reason, Glover added.
Glover also said that an FAA safety inspector has already requested reports from crew members on the Los Angeles-to-New York flight.
Weve been in discussions with our FAA safety inspectors and will encourage the airline to pursue this, he said.
The FAA can go after passengers for civil penalties exceeding $20,000, multiple sources said. But an FAA spokesman said Thursday that American had not filed a formal complaint.
He should do us all a favor and leave the country as he promised.
American Airlines should place this moron on one of their flights, fly him on a one-way ticket, and leave him in some country where he can be greeted by the locals in a way that is befitting his behavior.
Lord of the Douche. Father of the Decade.
Fly him to the DPRK and tell the local that he is a delivery of “long pork.”
For all the anti-union folks at FR (and I don’t know your views on the subject) - a company usually gets the union they deserve, and if the flight attendants have to take action to force the airline to do the right thing, I’ll back them on this one.
The union backed airline workers want failure-face Alec banned from the airline?
Hmmmmm. Aren’t these supposed to be Alec’s political hommies? If the Leftists won’t have him and he hates all normal people, what is he going to do?
Alec Baldwin is a special person. His fans say so.
I think he’s already decided he’s a United or Delta customer from now on anyway.
He’s a typical leftist.
The universe revolves around him.
He is his own god.
His wrath is visited upon all those who do not submit to his will.
No. Give him some parachutes and let him re-enact DB Cooper over the ocean
Only if the shoot is strings only!
I know I’d fly on any airline that holds Baldwin to his promise and flies him one-way out of the country.
Do individual airlines have no fly lists?
Is this guy trying to make Charlie Sheen look good?
Charlie Sheen would make considerably more amusing company.
Hey, Alec is a hero here. He really gave it to those union thugs.
BUT WAIT A SEC ... SIR ALEC IS AMONG THE 99%, RIGHT???
well he always has his new, young, yoga instructor turned girlfriend Hilaria using him for his money and power. so that should turn out well—not!
Do members of Congress get Secret Service protection, or where were they on that one? Of course you never heard about that incident in the LSM, since they cover for their own, as we all know. Had it been a conservative saying something similar, of course it would have dominated headlines for weeks, but with good ol' Alec, why of course it's just hyperbole...nothing to see here, move along...
It is appalling that Capitol One (credit cards) feature Baldwin as their main anchor commercial man . Including one spot that features the creep sitting in the cockpit of a plane . “ don’t worry ! I’ve played a pilot before “
I wrote Capitol One and told them I will never use their products again as long as they feature this man .
They blew me off .
A few million people should do this .Not just a few
