Alec Baldwin Issues

TOTALLY Unapologetic Apology

Alec Baldwin just went OFF about American Airlines, its employees, post 9/11 travel, and the entire airline industry -- and best of all ... this rant came wrapped in an apology.

In his letter, just published on Huffingtonpost.com, Baldwin begins by apologizing to passengers on yesterday's flight ... saying, "It was never my intention to inconvenience anyone with my 'issue' with a certain flight attendant." He claims the woman singled him out to "make some example of me."

Baldwin continues ... "It's no secret that the level of service on US carriers has deteriorated to a point that would make Howard Hughes red-faced. Filthy planes, barely edible meals, cuts in jet service to less-traveled locations."

He also claims the industry used 9/11 "as an excuse to make the air travel experience as inelegant as possible."

In his closing shot, Baldwin says many flight attendants "walk the aisles of an airplane with a whistle around their neck and a clipboard in their hands," and make air travel a "Greyhound bus experience."

Best apology ever.

Note to Alec: On Greyhound, you can play "Words with Friends" all you want.

Hey Goofballs, if you flew as much as Alec and so many of us you'd realize just how bad the airlines have become. First you hit the TSA stormtroopers with absolutely no common sense, then the flight attendants (air bags) that are arrogant, way too anal, and have an extremely poor sense of what service should be. If it were a restaurant server they'd get no tip; but then why tip - for a coke and maybe, maybe pretzels...
Wake up folks. Airline travel has sucked for a long time and it's getting worse!

The rules for using electronic devices on planes is a farce. Kind of like taking off your rubber sandals before going through a metal detector. Is it really necessary? I think not!

Alex goes on a hissy fit, stomps his foot and runs into the lavatory like an adolescent, prepubescent little girl. He beats the crap out of the lav door and walls. He savages the female flight attendants(reminiscent of the berating of his daughter) in person and when he was a twit(ter). All this anger and all he got was his shweddy balls thrown off? Must be nice to be queen!
