Alec Baldwin

Tossed by American Airlines Captain

The last straw in the Alec Baldwin/American Airlines incident came when he "slammed" the bathroom door so loudly the captain of Flight 4 had to get involved ... according to people on the plane.

We're told Baldwin's tweets about the incident are on point -- flight attendants wanted him to shut off his cell phone in the middle of a game of "Words with Friends" ... after the cabin door closed, but the plane remained at the gate.

But according to passengers ... after the confrontation over his phone, Alec got up to go to the bathroom and angrily slammed the lavatory door.  We're told it was so loud the captain called back to flight attendants to find out what was happening.

That's when the captain himself made the call to have Baldwin removed.

Sources close to Alec claim he did not slam the door, and only got up to get the flight attendant's name so he could file a complaint -- but because the fasten seat belt sign was on he was asked to leave the plane.

Alec boarded the next LAX-JFK flight -- and we're guessing he's enjoying an intense match of 'Words' right now ... at 40,000 feet.

If I were Alec Baldwin, I wouldn't fly on American Airlines anymore, since they seem to be cashing out on treating him like a tresspasser.

This is too funny!!!! Most flight attendants are idiots on a power trip. Often times, they could best serve the airlines and it's passengers by sitting down in their jump seats and STFU!!!!!

They were arguing over his playing on his smart phone because they were about to take off (at some point...sometime). But then he was allowed to get up to even go to the bathroom (as to slam its door)? That part makes no sense. His getting up to take names makes more sense. Unless he was standing by the galley next to some w/c and slammed it door just for emphasis, of course.

Oh my a "famous" individual inconvenienced. What a sissy boy. Having a tantrum. Really? To bad there wasn't an Air Marshall next to him. That could have been far better viewing than any of his "movies".

My understanding is that you must obey the flight attendants regardless of their requests or you can be removed from the plane. That's what happened. His actions seem childish and unnecesary. All he had to do was obey the rules.

Baldwin is a "Hollywood liberal" and a moron. He is like a little rich baby that must have his pacifier. What a jerk!!!

Typical airline stupidity. Like the plane is going to cra***** the gate. AB simply did what all of us frequent flighers want to do with these jokers, but we don't have the balls to do it. Glad to have someone who will.

What an ********! All Baldwins are lowlife dirt-bags.If he wasnt a D-List actor, he would have been charge with misdemeanor and other charges that exist only to poor people.
