Rainn Wilson Misses Flight, EVISCERATES U.S. Airways on Twitter

by at . Comments

Rainn Wilson is not happy.

The man who has delighted us with The Office quotes for nine seasons as Dwight K. Schrute has now provided some classic one-liners of a different note.

Rainn took to Twitter Friday to go absolutely go off on U.S. Airways after he and six other cast members missed their connecting flight to Scranton, Pa.

This happened after it left before the scheduled departure time. One could say that the airline - in honor of Adele's birthday today - set fire to the Rainn.

"So ‪@USAirways just screwed me & half the cast of The Office," he wrote. "Conctng flight left BEFORE departure time. Sorry Scranton won't see u til tom." ‬

And he wasn't even close to finished.

"I'm going to REALLY enjoy trying to convince 3.5 million twinions not to fly ‪@USAirways b/c of their sh-tty service," the 47-year-old actor went on.

"We're being forced to rent cars and drive to Scranton from Philly. Does the CEO of ‪@USAirways want to join us? I will fondle him angrily." ‬‬

And still, he wasn't close to done.

"The plane was a 20 seater, missing 7 people who had obviously just landed & it leaves 10 minutes EARLY! ‪@USAirways," Wilson Tweeted, incredulously.

"I'm going to take a dump on a ‪@USAirways plane's windshield."

"In the shape of the ‪@Delta logo."‬‬‬

For what it's worth, Rainn did get there by Saturday. He posted a photo on Instagram of a fan's tattoo of his face on her foot writing, "Only in Scranton."

According to WDBJ-TV, thousands attended the show's wrap party in the hardscrabble Pennsylvania city that is home to the show's paper company.

Scranton held a parade, street festival and farewell celebration in honor of Rainn and his co-stars, which is so cool that not even US Airways could ruin it.

This commuter airline should have checked the connection list.. or they did check, saw the names,and decided that because they didn't like the show, they would screw the cast. This unfortunately is typical for PHL airport.

Every airline shuts the door before the posted departure time. How many signs are posted in the airport and on their websites? From the USAirways site- "If you are not checked in and waiting in the boarding area at least 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time for domestic U.S. (30 minutes for international travel), your reservation may be canceled and you will not be eligible for denied boarding compensation."
I guess Rainn thinks that only applies to regular folks, not celebs.

You won't arrive on time if you don't leave on time, obvious huh, that's why they tell you to be at the gate, on the plane before scheduled departure time.
