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.

Far too typical of Hollywood Elite when they must be among the
"rest of us". Flying commercially is one of those rare times where they are supposed to act like the "rest of us" do. I still think he and his brothers were Sanduskied by their Daddy--too much bizarre behavior by all of them. Call Dr. Drew, he can help.

Dude, you are an overly opinionated, overly full of yourself celebrity who once played a man that doesn't wear panties.

American IS one of the 9/11 airlines and they will call you down or out for being special, but you have to be a regular guy to understand that.

Alex needs to just get over with it. He's just trying to make a pointless point and none of them explain why you should have your cellphone on.
