Jet Blue Flight Attendant Has A Meltdown At JFK
This ish is seriously hilarious, thought it might not have been so humorous for the people on the flight. Check it out:
A flight attendant on a plane that had just landed at JFK on Monday afternoon ran out of patience only a few steps from the terminal gate, so he allegedly cursed a blue streak over the public address system, pulled the emergency chute and ran away, sources said.
Jet Blue employee Steven Slater was on Flight 1052 from Pittsburgh to Kennedy Airport just after landing at around 12 p.m. when he got into a verbal altercation with a passenger, law-enforcement sources said.
Following a heated exchange, the flight attendant activated an emergency chute near the back of the plane and jumped down the evacuation slide and ran for it.
Dealing with passengers must be super annoying sometimes. Read on…
[Slater] asked for an apology but the passenger cursed him out—then Slater got on the flight’s announcement system and cursed out everyone onboard, law-enforcement sources said.
That’s when Slater pulled the emergency chute and slid off the Embraer 190 plane. After getting down the slide, Slater took off into the terminal, law-enforcement sources said.
Sources said the steward was “having a bad day.”
Slater seems ready to move to a non-extraditable island where he could change his name and live off of his newly liquidated 401K. Yeah, I’d say he was having a “bad day.”
Slater was later arrested at his home in Belle Harbor, Queens by Port Authority officials. He is being charged with 2nd-and 4th-degree criminal mischief, 1st- and 2nd-degree reckless endangerment and criminal trespass in the 3rd degree, according to a spokeswoman for Queens DA Richard Brown. Slater faces up to 7 years in prison if convicted
No one was injured in the incident. JetBlue, in a statement, added, “At no time was the security or safety of our customers or crewmembers at risk.”
