Steven Slater Ends Flight Attendant Career in Hilarious, Illegal Fashion

by at . Comments

After over two decades of dealing with rude airline passengers, Steven Slater finally lost it today.

The JetBlue flight attendant was aboard a recently-landed plane in New York's Kennedy Airport when a woman got up prematurely to remove her baggage from the overhead bin. Slater approached the individual, only to be conked in the head with the suitcase and told to "f-ck off."

He responded by getting on the intercom and saying: "To the f---ing a--hole who told me to f--- off, it's been a good 28 years. I've had it. That's it."

Slater then opened the emergency hatch, grabbed his two carry-on bags - and two beers! - and jumped down the inflatable airplane slide to safety. At least temporarily.

According to The New York Daily News, Port Authority police were alerted to the incident and showed up at Slater's home in Queens, where they found him in bed with his boyfriend. A neighbor says Slater was smiling as the cops walked him away in handcuffs.

He'll be charged with 2nd-and 4th-degree criminal mischief; 1st- and 2nd-degree reckless endangerment and criminal trespass in the 3rd degree; and faces up to seven years in jail.

Sources, and Slater's own MySpace page, confirm that he's battled substance abuse. His father also recently died and he's been taking care of his critically-ill mother. Both parents worked for the airline industry.

Let's all hope Steven Slater walks away from this altercation a free man. After all, as Phil Catelinet, a passenger on the flight, said afterward: "I wish we could all quit our jobs like that."

People who think he should go to jail are morons. You're simply a drain on the world spouting idiosies, and like a poison, you infect. Put a gun to you head and rid the world of yourself joining the Darwin awards. He did not a single thing illegal. He attacked no one, endangered no one, trespassed nowhere, destroyed nothing, was attacked and assaulted by a patron, and he becomes a prisoner. Things like that are what make people into terrorists against a governemt that would demonize someone for something like this. And the simpletons that encourage this kind of thing against him are the biggest problem. Damned sheep.


With all of the security issues at airports this was a totally ignorant thing to do. You just can't do these kind of insane things on an airplane anymore and he really should have known that. Someone told him to f off, big deal. Get over yourself, man up, be professional and do your job. PS - This moron deserves to go to jail.


Love it hahahahaa. But can't believe the harsh sentance he could face? Are they for real? Where I live, burglurs, abusers & rapists don't even get 7 years in prison!!!!


scalliwag are you really this dim
why would he care if a wench gave him the eye its already been reported that he was gay
why did he go off it already stated he got conked in the head by the stupid passengers luggage and told to fuck off despite the fact that she was in the wrong as your supposed to stay seated untill told other wise as for the others that dont seem to get it just try being a flight attendent for one day most of you would most likely opt for uzi's


Which makes us wonder- what set Steven Slater off? Really Steven, what pissed you off that much? Did them wenches not make enough eye contact with you, was it a bumpy flight, that some idiot refused to say sorry to you thus shocking your moral superiority, was it that time of month or was it simply something you've been waiting to do all these years...?


Good story, shame about all the spelling mistakes! :s


That may be. As a passenger who has had to stay seated for 4 hours while a plane is 50 yards from the dock, too bad. If I can be put on a no fly list for getting pissed off to f'ing bad. I'm not paid for this. Charge this turkey and put HIM on the no fly Greyhound list.
Seriously, why doesn't he deserve to be arrested ?


The sky might be the limit,but for this frequent flyer,his actions leaned towards that old song, "Take this job and shove it".


As passengers we are used to weird behaviour of flight attendants, some totally drunked, some refusing to do their job, and so one. Flight attendants should get regular medical psychiatric check up... WALKER, NEW YORK
