JetBlue Flight Attendant Curses Out Passenger, Uses Emergency Slide To Exit Plane And Run Away

Submitted by admin on Mon, 08/09/2010 - 15:00

Imagine this sight: Your JetBlue flight has just touched down at your destination when a flight attendant takes to the public address system, drops the F-bomb, pops the emergency door and exits the plane via the emergency slide. We're really hoping someone out there has video footage of this incident that went down at JFK Airport today.

The flight from Pittsburgh to NYC had just arrived when the attendant found himself involved in a verbal altercation with a passenger.

Here's how the NY Times describes the scene:

    One passenger got out of his seat to fetch his belongings from the overhead compartment before the crew had given permission. [The attendant] instructed the man to remain seated. The passenger defied him. [The attendant] approached and reached the passenger just as he pulled down his luggage, which struck [the attendant] in the head.

After his request for an apology was answered with profanity by the passenger, the attendant took to the intercom and announced, "To the passenger who called me a motherfucker, **** you... I've been in the business 28 years. I've had it. That's it."

That's when he popped open the emergency exit and slid down to the tarmac. He then went inside, ripped off his tie and hopped on the AirTrain monorail to the JetBlue parking lot.

According to the Wall Street Journal, he also managed to swipe a few beers from the plane's galley on his way out.

The attendant, 39, was arrested at his home and charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.

JetBlue is, of course, taking this seriously and helping the FAA with their investigation. However, said the airline in a statement: "At no time was the security or safety of our customers or crew members at risk."
