Travolta Plane Emergency -- Pulp Fiction?

4/5/2007 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John TravoltaRemember that supposed emergency plane landing that left John Travolta "shaken" last week in Ireland? Turns out it wasn't really a case of "Stayin' Alive."

The actor just released a statement to TMZ which dismissed the incident. "Thank you for your concern," says Travolta. "There was never an emergency. It was just a fuel stop and when we went to depart, the #2 engine needed a new starter." Reports from England had suggested that one of the engines malfunctioned mid-flight, and that the emergency landing was a close call.

Travolta -- and his Boeing 707 jet -- are both fine, in case you were wondering.

Um, a 707 is a commercial passenger jet designed to carry 200 people. The resources Mr. Travolta is sucking up and the pollution he's spewing out merely to fly ONE PERSON to Europe is truly sickening.

I don't know about this episode.....but...... I used to work for a major airline. One day on our incident page, it said that Travolta almost caused a mid-air crash in the Florida area. I don't remember if he was cited by the FAA or what happened, but it NEVER made it to the regular news. I don't know why he needs to fly these huge planes around!

John Travolta makes 20 million dollars per movie. I think that would be enough to maintain his plains.
You people take this Scientology stuff too seriously. Let them alone .What they believe has no effect on your life.
Some better known religions effect our lives more than scientology does.

Also that 15 thousand dollars they gave to katrina victims was more that most people gave. John and Kelly are very nice people,leave them alone.

He's Boring now    

15 thousand on his net worth on a percentage basis is not even close to the 50 bucks I gave to the Red Cross for Katrina, when compared on a percentage basis...quit getting fooled by amounts that people give and do the percentage math to keep things equal.

bottom line---15k is a jet fill up to him.

And whoever met him in the Dennys...yeah right, like he goes to a restaurant like the one from Pulp Fiction. But if he does in fact go there he's eating too many of the Grand Slams and than having desert too. Nice to hear hes at least cordial, he better be, given all the money he's made off of people. I'm sure if he had more time he;d turn that niceness into a speel for joining the Cruz Cult.

I still can't grasp the notion of Travolta as "pilot". Just sounds queer. Maybe because he looks just so plain stupid. I would rather Gabe Kaplan fly.

Do a little research before spouting your mouth. John Travolta makes 20 million per movie,even Kelly makes about1 million. If anything he gives his church money not the other way.

Regarding the fact that you say he only gave 15 thousand toward katrina victims.That's more than most hollywood stars gave,who make more than he does.
