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."

Sadly, I doubt it will register with his ego that the rules apply to him as well as everyone else.

I believe the airline story. If he can't follow the airline simple instructions then he shouldn't be flying. Take a Greyhound bus or Amtrak

The Baldwin brothers need to be loaded into a rocket and fired at the Sun.

You are over-reacting about the daughter thing. Children occasionally need to be disciplined and that's what he did. Yeah, a little over the top calling her a pig but who among us is perfect? As for the episode on the plane, the FCC needs to do more checking on mobile devices on a plane. There hasn't been one case where a mobile device interfered with a plane's electronics. The bottom line is AB did over-react but I'm sure he'll do better next time.

I thought Alec said he was moving to Ireland if George W. Bush was reelected. What is he doing still living in the US? Good riddance!
