Whitney Houston

Flight Crew Threatens ...

Fasten Your Seatbelt, Or Else

Whitney Houston
isn't on drugs anymore ... she's just crazy -- and yesterday she almost got kicked off a Delta Airlines flight ... because she refused to buckle her seatbelt.

Multiple sources tell us ... Whitney boarded a flight in Atlanta Wednesday afternoon ... and when she settled into her seat, a crew member asked her to buckle up.

We're told Whitney refused and "got diva" on the crew member ... until another crew member came over and warned Houston that if she didn't buckle up, she would have to get off the plane.

Whitney eventually allowed one of the crew members to grab the buckle and fasten it for the singer -- and the plane was then cleared for takeoff.

Sources close to the singer tell us ... Whitney "overreacted a little bit after missing an earlier flight but she's still 100% sober and was on the way to Detroit for her first day of shooting a new movie."

It's not right, but it's OK ...

"It's not right, but it's ok". Pretty much sums up how these elitists live and think. Money can buy pretty much anything but it will never buy class.

Different Rules Apply    

They should have thrown her off the plane - from what I read, she still did not cooperate and fasten her belt ~ so has been Whitney too bad you couldn't have gone down with class.

I promise you she is still on drugs, just legal prescription meds not illegal coke and what not! Any celebrity can get their dr to write them an rx for anti-anxiety meds and she sure is acting like she's on them. I know I happen to be a pharmacist and see this happen all the time.

There is something not being reported here. Why would a f/a have to buckle it for her??? I was a f/a for an intl airline for over a decade and I can tell you, we don't ever have to buckle a seat belt for anyone. It sounds like there may have been an issue w/the buckle (or possible seat) and she didn't want people touching her if it wasn't necessary. I can tell you, NOBODIES freak out and overreact on flights EVERY SINGLE DAY. Often times, if the f/a is a true professional you can diffuse the situation long before it gets to the point of passenger melt-down. My guess, the original f/a wasn't very good at his/her job. F/a's do not have "authority" like a police person, all you can do is tell the pax what they should/should not do, if they don't do it, you have no authority personally (you can't give a citation/fine or arrest someone for saying "no"), ya gotta go get someone who does (and look like a little kid tattle-telling). That's why people skills are such a big part of training. F/a's can be OUTRAGEOUS control freaks. Yes, their job is safety, but adults also don't like being treated like little children and talked down to.

How sad for Miss Houston, what could have been,she had one of the greatest voices,a voice so easy to listen to. Her Mom was also a great singer as well as her Aunt but instead she did all this to herself. God Watch over her....
