This is one serious cat fight!
Okay, so you may remember last week there was all types of drama over Alec Baldwin getting kicked off of an American Airlines flight because he straight up refused to stop playing Words with Friends on his phone during the flight take off.
THEN Alec and the guys at SNL thought it would be super funny to spoof the whole thing on Weekend Update (and it totes was).
The problem: it turns out American Airlines doesn't seem to have a sense of humor.
The airlines confirmed that
Ha! He would!
Dressing up as an American Airlines pilot who wanted to apologize to "American treasure" Alec, the actor poked fun at the recent mishap where he was kicked off the plane for refusing to turn off his phone while he was playing Words with Friends
Only Alec could get away with this kind of behavior! Watch above!
Words with Friends must be loving this! They are getting SO MUCH free press!!!!!
To recap….over the week, there's been all types of drama over Alec Baldwin getting kicked off of an American Airlines flight for playing Words with Friends on a plane after being asked to turn off his cell phone.
Now, American Airlines flight attendants are striking back HARD against Alec - they want him to be fined for his actions AND they want him on AA's no-fly list….AND they want their airline to stop showing 30 Rock on their planes!
Here's what AA flight attendant Lonny Glover had to say about it:

To recap…..yesterday, we learned that Alec was kicked off of an American Airlines flight for playing Words with Friends on the plane after being asked to turn off his cell phone.

Alec Baldwin has tweeted his peace on the plane fiasco, and now so has American Airlines!
After kicking him off the flight for playing Words with Friends, AA issued this statement to let everyone know their side of the story:

I leave you with this…. The great Bernard Haitink and the Concertgebouw, performing the Mahler 9th, fourth movement.
