Last week Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight for playing Words With Friends on the runway. After the incident, Balwin wrote an article entitled “A Farewell to Common Sense, Style, and Service” to apologize to his fellow passengers while slamming the airline. But Baldwin isn’t done talking about his fiasco. Last night he appeared on Saturday Night Live as American Airlines captain Steve Rogers to apologize to himself.
After the incident, Baldwin wrote:
“The lesson I’ve learned is to keep my phone off when the 1950’s gym teacher is on duty. That was my fault there, even though this trip was quite a bit different from so many others. But it is sad, I think, that you’ve got to fly overseas today in order to bring back what has been thrown overboard by US carriers in terms of common sense, style, and service.”
During his article, Baldwin also managed to insult the bus industry. Balwin wrote that the lack of common sense, style, and service in the airline industry make flying a “Greyhound bus experience.”
Here’s the clip from SNL.
Do you think Alec Baldwin is handling this situation correctly?
