Philip Seymour Hoffman was out like a light minutes after boarding a plane in Georgia last week ... after he was seen hitting the bottle at an Atlanta bar ... TMZ has learned.

According to a passenger ... Hoffman was out almost as quickly as he took his seat for the NY-bound jet Thursday ... his head falling forward into his chest.

We're told sometime after the plane took off ... PSH came to ... groggy and disheveled.  After the flight touched down, we're told he was quickly put on a waiting airport cart and whisked away.

As we first reported ... Hoffman had been drinking in a downtown Atlanta bar earlier that day -- just 3 days before his death --  witnesses said he appeared drunk and made repeated trips to the bathroom.

Who's paying for all this "white glove treatment" for celebrities at airports? Since most are government-owned or -subsidized, are taxpayers stuck with the bill for discriminarory coddling of multimillionaire VIPs .

Why do all these star outlets wait and hold on photos. You guys act all surprised when something happens and in actuality you knew what was going on with him.

Please. Let this go and stop publishing these pictures and stories. What good is this going to do? Respect him and his family and friends by letting them have the privacy to grief their loss.

If you go to 89 Jane Street, New York, NY on Google Maps you can see PSH walking in shorts between two other men and waving at the camera.

He was planning a long heroin binge. The cops found $3 million worth of the stuff at his house.

It wasn't the drinking, it's the herion that made him nod out. So sad. Addiction to that drug is a terrible thing. I've lost great people in my life due to it.
