Jetblue flight attendant Steven Slater may have slid into the thing of legend among flight attendants. After a passenger argued with Slater about getting up before the airplane pulled into the gate, Slater allegedly let loose a string of profanity, grabbed two beers, and slid down the plane’s evacuation slide.
After the passenger started to prematurely unload luggage on the flight from Pittsburgh to New York’s JFK airport, Slater reportedly let loose on the loud speaker, One witness recalled Slater stating ‘to the passenger who called me a (expletive expletive, expletive) you. I’ve been in this business 28 years. And that’s it, I’m done.’”
He has now been charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, and trespassing.
JetBlue flights are getting quite exciting. Recently, a JetBlue pilot was removed from a plane for promising “to die in a spectacular fashion.” Other crew members have also found themselves in police custory, here.
