American Airlines:

Alec Baldwin Was Epic Jerk

American Airlines
claims Alec Baldwin was "extremely rude to the crew" on a flight out of LAX yesterday -- "calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language."

In the wake of Baldwin's Twitter attacks on the company, AA has finally released a statement ...  confirming what TMZ reported yesterday -- he was an epic jerk.

AA says, "Since an extremely vocal customer has publicly identified himself as being removed from an American Airlines flight on Tuesday, Dec. 6, we have elected to provide the actual facts of the matter as well as the FAA regulations which American, and all airlines, must enforce. Cell phones and electronic devices are allowed to be used while the aircraft is at the gate and the door is open for boarding."

"When the door is closed for departure and the seat belt light is turned on, all cell phones and electronic devices must be turned off for taxi-out and take-off."

"This passenger declined to turn off his cell phone when asked to do so at the appropriate time. The passenger ultimately stood up (with the seat belt light still on for departure) and took his phone into the plane’s lavatory. He slammed the lavatory door so hard, the cockpit crew heard it and became alarmed, even with the cockpit door closed and locked."

"They immediately contacted the cabin crew to check on the situation. The passenger was extremely rude to the crew, calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language. Given the facts above, the passenger was removed from the flight and denied boarding."

Mr. Baldwin joins Charley Sheen on the "Back to Apes" list. The airlines should put him on the no fly list until he straightens up his act. Flight Attendants tend to be the most customer oriented of service personnel. Alec fell from his pedestal with a resounding thud and deserves a steaming hot coffee accidentally dumped in his pompous lap. As a former airline employee I've seen his type. Ycch!

Typical liberal progressive Democratic jerk. I do believe he is one of the 1%, that the wall bangers dislike. What an arrogant piece of crap o wind bag loser. Good for American airlines for booting his fat ass off the plane. He should pay more taxes so he can redistribute his wealth to all of the free social programs his party likes to enhance and expand.

Baldwin behaved like a child. He is a whiner. If passengers do not listen on the ground, just imagine what it would be like in the air! Kudos to American Airlines! Way to take charge for the safety of the rest of the passengers who matter more than this jerk!

What? A celebrity with egocentric, self indulgent,volatile, explosive, and rude behaviour? NO WAY, I am at a loss for words. Personally they should have called the ground authorities and had him arrested, but then again celebrities are above the law.

Actors are artists, they can be tempermental and dramatic sometimes. Also, flying can be frustrating these days the way they treat people, and a lot of people get set off and have tantrums, there are way more every day civilians that get thrown off planes every day, it's not just celebrities.
