Ranting Southwest Pilot Apologizes. Mmhmm.

southwest pilot apologizes for rant

Remember that Southwest Airlines pilot who unknowingly broadcast a rant on only having "gays, grannies and grandes" for flight attendants?

Yeah, that guy…

James Fritzen Taylor is his name in case you forgot, and Mr. Taylor had a lot of time to think about his hurtful words during his suspension. In an apology released to all Southwest employees on Tuesday, the pilot had this to say:

I deeply regret the derogatory remarks I made and the hurt I have caused. I take full responsibility for those comments. It was truly insensitive of me and I would like all of you to know that from now on, I will show nothing but my utmost respect during my interactions with all employees. This has forever changed me, and I hope that others can learned from my mistakes. I have learned a much-needed lesson to be more sensitive of others and I hope you will see me as a more tolerant and considerate person.

It actually sounds pretty sincere. We just the apology came from the heart and not a PR agent's desk.

What do U think?

    Yeah, he looked just like I thought he would. Like Jake from the Bachelor. What a douche.

    Shut the fuck up Mario, your gay agenda grosses everyone out.

    "We just the apology came from the heart.. " You just what, hope, pray, wish?

    I expect you to apologize to every single person for the hurt and pain you have caused them over the years. LOLz. Like you'd ever have the guts, pansy.

    This pilot should team up with Tracy Morgan and the two can go on an apology tour. The pilot can provide double duty by flying them to all their apology destinations. But seriously I think there is something wrong with the whole culture at airlines these days. They are forgetting how to treat their passengers and fellow employees. I found a great site for travel related discussions at airlinelodgingetc com

    I've always had good experiences with Southwest. The crew is usually very friendly. I'm not going to let one asshole change that for me. My last flight did have all gay dudes as flight attendants and they were great.

    Then stop coming to his website you dumb cun*t.

    I think what happened was wrong but what happened to "freedom of speech" and we are allowed our own opinions? Just asking.

    He should just man up and and say that he has the right to feel any way that he wants to. The world just keeps going further and further down the politically correct drain. Its the same with Tracy Morgan. Christ, a comedian can't even joke without getting people all butt hurt. We need an Andrew Dice Clay comeback. That would really cause some heards to explode.

    Re: buggadaboo

    I work with many conservatives so with your school of thought, I should be allowed to call them stupid fuckers without consequence.

    Re: XraySpex – If that's how you feel then of course you should be able to say it. Just be careful of where you say it. This pilot's main crime IMO wasn't what he'd said but that he broadcast what what he said publicly while on the job.

    Re: XraySpex – Besides. I'm sure most liberals call conservatives that anyways.

    Every news outlet seems to be focusing on the apology only and completely overlooking that this pilot is married with two teenaged kids, yet in his rant was complaining that he couldn't get laid. I don't want to hear from him. I want to hear from his wife!

    I admire the gay community’s ability to shed light on even the tiniest of transgressions that might hurt a gay person’s feelings. In fact, I would like to emulate their diligence in a campaign to empower an even more maligned group, namely people who are not very intelligent. The word “stupid” is constantly used as a derogatory term and we as a society needs to be more sensitive about this. It is hurtful and those who insist on using it need to be called out on it.

    in this county you now have to apologize for citing facts. what a joke.



  15. 15

    I just find it amazing that people now a days can not say what is on their mind. We live in such a sensitive world. If the shoe fits why is it bad to call someone what they are? Just plain ridiculous.

    I am a flight attendant and I can assure you that many pilots(doesn't take a genius to work a computer) think like this guy but they're more quiet about it ! what an idiot and by the way, yes we are mostly a little more mature looking crowd and many of our great crews are gay but we look WAY BETTER than most of the population , I'm a woman and the best friends I've ever had are gays, men and women .The state or religion have no business in people's private life.

    thank you
