A New York City woman has filed a lawsuit against JetBlue, alleging that airline employees not only made a spectacle of her by removing her from a flight to see what she was wearing under her baggy shirt but added insult to injury by refusing to let her back on the plane.
Authorities have interviewed every single passenger that was on Steven Slater’s last flight, and not a single one says events went down the way he’s been describing them, according to a Port Authority police official.
Three weeks after JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater earned his 15 minutes of fame by freaking out and taking an unscheduled trip down the jet’s emergency exit slide, the airline’s CEO Dave Barger is finally speaking out on the incident. Let’s just say he won’t be watching Slater’s reality show.
The passengers on board a flight from Long Beach, CA, to Sacramento got to live out their irate JetBlue flight attendant fantasies yesterday by taking a ride down a jet’s emergency exit slide.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock — or been stranded on a tarmac — you’ve heard about the JetBlue flight attendant who flipped out, popped open the emergency door, grabbed some beer from the galley and escaped via the plane’s emergency slide. Well, the attendant finally came before a judge for arraignment this morning.
A JetBlue plane bound for Fort Lauderdale, FL, was forced to return to Newark Liberty International Airport on Monday after an engine cover dropped off the jet shortly following taking off.
