Jets QB Geno Smith GETS APOLOGY FROM AIRLINE Sorry We Booted You From Our Plane

Breaking News
NY Jets quarterback Geno Smith just kicked Virgin Airlines' ass ... getting the company to issue a FULL APOLOGY for having him thrown off a flight at LAX last week.

As we previously reported ... Geno was tossed from his plane after getting into a confrontation with a flight attendant -- who allegedly yanked his headphones out of his ears on the plane.

Now, Virgin is backing down big time ...even taking responsibility for allowing the situation to blow up:

“After a full review of the incident, we believe it was the result of a misunderstanding that regrettably escalated unnecessarily."

The statement continues, "We’ve apologized to Mr. Smith for his experience, which could have been better – and we’d welcome him back on board any time."

Geno has issued a statement of his own saying, "I really appreciate that Virgin America took this seriously, looked into this matter and followed up with me. I look forward to flying their airline again soon.”

It ain't often the Jets get a victory these days ..
