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."

All of you ppl who think he needs to get over himself please be quite. No one should get kicked off a flight for "talking" back to a flight attendant. It's getting ridiculous. It's against the law to be a prick? If that's the case most of the ppl on this blog would be kicked out of lots of places. Flight attendants have taken their position way too seriously since 9/11. Not everything is a threat to national security. Why don't you ppl be more concerned about the pilot who isn't getting enough sleep between flights and drinking while flying. Now that's a threat to your security. ALL of you GET OVER YOURSELVES!!!!

Alec Baldwin thinks he is "entitled" because he is a liberal celebrity. He is a sick individual.

He such an *ss. Who does he think he is? He would rather play his stupid game on his stupid phone than follow the rules. I guess he thinks he is above the law. He could care less if anyone else was inconvenienced. This sounds like a 2 year old throwing a tantrum when someone wants them to put away their toy. SHAME ON HIM.

Some FAs are arrogant bitches, even though you turned off your device, they still wont stop bitchin' until you walked out of the plane. So shut the f**k up AA cabin crew & up your customer service level! I worked in the same industry for many years & I'd fire that FA if she keeps doin this to passengers! Respect & value your customers coz w/o them, there ain't no sales, & if money ain't comin' company ends up getting bankrupt! Just sayin

And this man who harasses overworked people who are just doing their jobs claims to be a great liberal and a friend of the ordinary man? What a rotten hypocrite!

Alec Baldwin is such a flippin' jerk! He caused me not to see my father before he passed away due to his childish rants! I knew I may not make it to NYC in time, but I had a chance before his antics! IT'S JUST A GAME! I will never forgive him, nor should anyone else! How dare you jeopordize our safety for a stupid game!

Flt attendants don't get paid extra to have confrontation with passengers... announcements are made on every flt about the rules that passengers need to comply for the safety of everyone on board... if playing games is THAT important, then get off and finish playing... passengers tend to undermind the authority of the FAA... if flt attendants don't have to answer to FAA, they wouldn't give a you know what as to where u put ur bags etc since they can easily get out during an evacuation... so.. for those who think they're above everyone else... FLY UR OWN JET!!!
