JetBlue to Passengers

Here's $50 for Babysitting

Puddle of Mudd

9/6/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 ...

Not sure how it's JetBlue's fault at all this guy was an ass. Most airlines would say it was beyond their control and move on.

I think a $50 apology for someone else's actions is pretty generous. If a client on that flight feels otherwise, they need to go after Wes Scantlin's wallet for more.

50 bucks for their valuable time? I'd tell the airline to keep it and never fly with them again. You get lousy service at a restaurant due to their bad policies...Do you go back for more?

Silly TMZ    

Why do these airlines allow their staff to serve someone alcohol until they cause such a fuss that have to make an emergency landing? Alcohol makes people stupid. Anyone serving booze to the public has a responsibility and where I live, a legal obligation, to not serve someone until they are wasted. As I bartender, I am liable for what a drunk I serve does. So Jet Blue should be shelling out money to all the people their staff inconvenienced by serving this idiot to the point of retardation. It's sad grown adults can't be responsible and take care of themselves if they are going to drink but everyone is a moron when they drink too much.

JetBlue doesn't have to give anybody anything. You have $50 more than when you left.

Its not the airline's fault he's a douche. They didnt have to give anyone anything I thought it was cool of them.

Hey $50 is better than nothing. JetBlue could have apologized verbally and left it at that. Wes, the drunk, should be sued by JetBlue for their financial loss due to plane fuel, overtime for their personnel and the backed up flight schedule for that aircrafts next boarding.
