JetBlue to Passengers

Here's $50 for Babysitting

Puddle of Mudd

Passengers on board the JetBlue flight that made an emergency landing in Texas this week -- because the singer for Puddle of Mudd allegedly threw a boozy mid-flight temper tantrum -- are receiving a paltry $50 apology from the airline, TMZ has learned.

As we first reported, a JetBlue flight bound for L.A. made an emergency landing in Austin, TX Tuesday after Wes Scantlin allegedly got in a heated drunken argument with a flight attendant.

The plane was grounded in Austin for more than an hour as a result -- but a rep for JetBlue tells us, the passengers were compensated for their time ... with a $50 JetBlue credit.

According to the rep, if any customer experiences an onboard ground delay between 1 and 2 hours ... he or she is entitled to a $50 JetBlue voucher.

And as everyone knows, $50 is good for a trip to nowhere.

So we gotta ask ...

Why should JetBlue be responsible? The drunken idiot should be paying not JetBlue. Lay the responsibility at the feet of the correct party.

Screw a small voucher.
$50 CASH at least!
One free flight would be appropiate.

It would be better if it wasn't credit with their airline, since it forces you to fly with them again, even if you don't really want to.

Jet Blue should up the ante and go after what's-his-name for their refund.

They should be compensated by the tard that caused the delay on top of the $50. But hey, at least they got $50. It's better than nothing.

The voucher is insulting. The airline will make money off whoever will redeem it.

The passengers were inconvenienced because of a drunk and somehow TMZ thinks that a $50 voucher isn't good enough?

This is a great example of entitlement that is rampant in todays society..."*sniff sniff*...I deserve a comped ticket because I was late for my landing by a couple of hours...*sniff sniff*...I deserve more".

A $50 voucher sounds good. Anything more would be wrong under the cir***stances.
