Los Angeles - A crew member who dealt with Alec Baldwin before he was thrown off the American Airlines plane at LAX described his behaviour as "violent, abusive and aggressive."
Baldwin was thrown off an American Airlines plane at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday afternoon, causing the flight to New York to be delayed. Although the airline itself refused to comment on the incident other passengers, crew members and Baldwin himself have had plenty to say about the incident.
The 30 Rock star let his fans know about the incident via Twitter. Explaining that he had been bounced from the plane for playing a computer game on his iPad, Baldwin sent a tweet saying "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt," the LA Times reported.However his account conflicts with that of fellow passenger Steve Weiss who said of Baldwin "Apparently he said he was playing a game, but he was actually talking on the phone. She [the flight attendant] was very nice. The door was closed they just announced that they were pulling away from the gate. He got up threw his papers on the floor stormed into the bathroom slammed the door closed, beat on the wall and then came back. He said 'If you want to kick me off, kick me off.' He was just crazy, he just flipped out, the guy has problems." (NY Post)An unnamed crew member reportedly said "He was violent, abusive and aggressive. He got into the bathroom and started beating on the wall and he pounded his fists on the galley counter. Yelling, screaming, very ugly. It was unsafe to keep him on board that's why he got kicked out."After vowing never to use American Airlines again following the incident, Baldwin took a later flight with the same airline. The Telegraph reported that although the airline had declined to comment citing privacy issues, a spokesman for the FAA confirmed "If we determine the passenger did in fact disobey a crew member's instructions, we can propose to fine that passenger."
