Alec Baldwin kicked off plane at LAX, takes later flight
Alec Baldwin was bounced from an American Airlines plane at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday afternoon. But he and American apparently made up because the “30 Rock” actor tweeted that he hopped a later flight.
All of this according to Twitter. Here’s the timeline:
Michael J. Wolf (@mjw) of Activate tweeted around 1:45 p.m. PST: “On an AA flight at LAX. Alec Baldwin removed from the plane. We had to go back to the gate. Terrible that everyone had to wait.”
Baldwin (@alecbaldwin) sent this tweet around 2 p.m.: “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt,” @AlecBaldwin wrote around 2 p.m. (Words With Friends is a mobile word game by Zynga.)
Sixteen minutes later he tweeted: "#theresalwaysunited.” And then: “But, oddly, 30 Rock plays inflight on American.”
At 2:35 p.m., the airline (@AmericanAir) responded: "@AlecBaldwin Mr. Baldwin, we are looking into this. Please DM us contact information.”
After that, Baldwin responded: “Now on the 3 o’clock American flight. The flight attendants already look ... smarter.”
And then: "#theresalwaysunited Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950’s find jobs as flight attendants.”
