JetBlue Attendant Cusses, Quits and Slides-9.8 From the Russian Judge

JetBlue attendant slides down emergency chute after fight with passenger
By Holly Bailey



Police arrested a JetBlue flight attendant today at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport after he got into a verbal altercation with a passenger and then fled the scene by sliding down the plane's emergency evacuation chute.

It all happened as the plane pulled into the gate at JFK after what had been a routine flight from Pittsburgh. But shortly after landing, a passenger stood up as the plane was taxiing to the gate and began removing his bags from the overhead bin. According to the Wall Street Journal's Sean Gardiner, the flight attendant, identified as Steven Slater, asked the passenger to return to his seat.

A "heated" exchange ensued, which culminated in Slater walking to the rear of the plane, where he grabbed the intercom. "To the passenger who called me a motherf***er, f*** you!" Slater yelled, passengers tell the New York Daily News. "I've been in the business 28 years. I've had it. That's it." He activated the emergency chute and slid away.


Slater then walked along the jetway into the terminal, where he took a shuttle to the employee parking lot. Observers watched as he ripped off his JetBlue tie and threw it to the ground. Slater got into his vehicle and drove to his home in Queens. According to the New York Times' Ray Rivera, he was arrested shortly afterward and faces charges of criminal mischief and trespassing.

A source tells WNBC that Slater was "having a bad day."

I love the idea of him saying "I've had it. That's it!" and then sliding down an emergency chute.

This is hilarious! I'm on this guy's side. I hope he doesn't get 7 years in jail!

Slater told the passenger to sit back down -- but, as he approached, the woman continued to pull her belongings down and struck him in the head with her bag, authorities said.

Slater asked for an apology but the woman cursed him out, saying in effect "go f--k yourself" and calling him a "mo-fo,
Then Slater got on the flight's announcement system and allegedly cursed out everyone on the plane -- especially the person who mouthed off to him
When his tirade was through, he then took a some beers from the galley and pulled the emergency chute and slid off the Embraer 190 plane. According to police sources, he threw his luggage down first and said something to the effect of "there goes 28 years," before he took the plunge.
Slater was later arrested at his home in Belle Harbor, Queens by Port Authority officials. He was found by police in a sexual embrace with his partner, sources said.

He is being charged with . . . 1st- and 2nd-degree reckless endangerment . . . , 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."
So, which is it?

I'm surprised he was able to make it home before someone busted him. Good for him, though. Most people dream of quitting their job with this much style.

Good for him! Too many pricks on planes these days.

How hard is it to understand stay in your fucking seat till the plane comes to a stop.

I predict he will have no trouble getting another job as many will relate!

A neighbor reported seeing him arriving home at a high rate of speed...and there are reports that he's been under a lot of stress because his mother is dying.
Hell, he should have grabbed a six pack of beer.

Yeah, his mother is dying of cancer.

All it took was one more asshole customer to finally break him. What a great way to finally call it quits though!

Hopefully all charges are dropped.

I've always wondered where the idiots who jump out of their seat the very second the plane hits the gate expect to go.

How can it be 28 years when he's only 38 years old?
