Flight Attendant Uses Emergency Slide to Escape Dispute
By RAY RIVERA AND ANDY NEWMAN

Updated, 3:49 p.m. | A JetBlue flight attendant apparently upset with an uncooperative passenger on a just-landed flight unleashed a profanity-laden tirade on the public-address system, pulled the emergency-exit chute, slid off the plane and fled Kennedy International Airport, a law enforcement official said.

The dramatic getaway was short-lived. The attendant, Steven Slater, 39, was arrested at his home not far away in Belle Harbor, Queens. He was charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.

The contretemps unfolded as JetBlue flight 1052 from Pittsburgh landed at Kennedy around noon — on time — with a full load of 100 passengers and pulled up to the gate, said the law enforcement official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was continuing but offered the following account:

One passenger got out of his seat to fetch his belongings from the overhead compartment before the crew had given permission. Mr. Slater instructed the man to remain seated. The passenger defied him. Mr. Slater approached and reached the passenger just as he pulled down his luggage, which struck Mr. Slater in the head.

Mr. Slater asked for an apology. The passenger instead cursed at him. Mr. Slater got on the plane’s public address system and cursed out all aboard. Then he activated the inflatable evacuation slide at service exit R1, launched himself off the plane, an Embraer 190, ran to the employee parking lot and left the airport in a car he had parked there.

In a statement, JetBlue said it was working with the Federal Aviation Administration and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to investigate the incident.

“At no time was the security or safety of our customers or crew members at risk,” the company said, declining to answer other questions about the incident.

A MySpace page appearing to belong to Mr. Slater indicates that he has been a flight attendant since 1990. His LinkedIn entry says he has worked for JetBlue since January 2008.

In addition to serving as chairman of JetBlue’s uniform redesign committee, the LinkedIn entry says, Mr. Slater serves on the airline’s in-flight values committee.

Imagine being one of those guys with the orange cones who stands on the tarmac to direct planes and seeing that.

I would suspect that he will need to take a new career path after that. No doubt he just lost his shitty job at Jet Blue but I can't see any other airlines hire him after that.

Best part from another article.

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.

I find it odd that one of the things this guy is being charged with is 'reckless endangerment', and on the news last night they emphasized that "no one was ever in any danger" during the situation. Now I'm no law expert, but doesn't common sense say that someone has to be in danger for someone else to be charged with reckless endangerment? Once again, our legal system makes no damn sense at all.

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon does a song about this called: "You gotta get 2 beers and jump"

The news broadcast I watched said the "reckless endangerment" came from him opening the slide at the gate. Theoretically a baggage handler could have been in the path of the opening slide and been injured, but no one was.

Agreed though on the charge being BS, clearly someone has their panties in a wad.

Charge is complete BS.

Yes, it's a great way to quit a job.

No, you DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES fuck with an airplane emergency chute, especially not post-9/11. He's a frigging idiot and deserves whatever jail time he gets.

He obviously just got fed up with all the years of dealing with people. Understandable. But he should've known a while ago that he was burning out, and should've moved to a different job. I'm not a people person. Thus, I try not to work with people. It's pretty simple.
