Flight attendant grabs two beers and slides down emergency chute - In what may have been one of the most memorable job resignations of all time Steven Slater had enough and showed in an entertaining way to the world but potentially dangerous way to those he was supposed to be looking after!
Flight attendant grabs two beers and slides down emergency chute
We all remember this story, surely!
In August 2010 an incident happened on a taxied JetBlue plane when a passenger refused to apologise to flight attendent Steven Slater at JFK airport. Steven then went onto the PA and reportedly called all the passengers something expletive and aimed it mostly at the man who had hit him in the head.
He grabbed two beers, deployed the slide and slid down, ran into the Terminal, made his way to his car and drove home to Queens.
For some reason JetBlue officials didn’t report the incident for 25mins which enabled the odd getaway but he was later picked up at home.
Steven Slater sentencing - It’s reported Steven avoided time in the slammer by negotiating a plea bargain.
In hindsight (and partly at the time) you have to admit this story was quite funny and you can kind of relate after a bad day at work! It was a bit OTT though!
What do you think? Should he have been punished heavier or applauded for not taking crap from a rude passenger?
