The country is still reeling from Tuesday's engine failure and tragedy on Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 from NYC to Dallas that claimed the life of Jennifer Riordan, a bank executive from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Riordan — who became the first person to die in a commercial air incident in the United States since 2009 — was nearly sucked out of the Southwest Airlines plane when the left engine apparently failed, exploded, and sent shrapnel piercing through the window by her seat.

The Albuquerque native and mother of two was Vice President of Community Relations for Wells Fargo bank for nearly ten years, according to her LinkedIn account, but family, friends, and citizens in Albuquerque are remembering her for far more than her career.

In a statement released to the media, her family recalled Jennifer's "vibrancy, passion, and love" while memorializing her after the tragedy (below):

Overweight Man Gets Yanked Off A Southwest Aircraft For Being Too Fat

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueBody

This is horrible!

Texas man Matthew Harper got yanked off a Southwest aircraft on Sunday because he weighs roughly 340 pounds, and considering that the company he works for uses SW to fly their employees from state to state… they failed to buy him two seats on the overbooked flight from Chicago to Denver, which resulted in him getting kicked off the plane.

However, before he got the boot, a flight attendant asked Matthew if he knew Southwest's overweight policy, to which Harper answered, "yes ma'am I do," and her reply was:

Southwest Set To Air New Reality Show After Epic Publicity Fails

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteGreen DayReality TV

Southwest has decided to allow cameras onto their planes following recent publicity flub-ups.

The airline has been caught on record doing very stupid regulating during their flights.

Some of the fails include kicking director Kevin Smith off for being overweight and kicking off Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong for sagging.

As reported earlier, L Word star Leisha Hailey was also kicked off for kissing her girlfriend, being told Southwest is a "family airling."

FAIL!

The new reality show will air on TLC and show planes from Baltimore and Denver.

The airline hopes the show will promote passenger and employee love towards Southwest.

But the damage has already been done.

Saggy Pants Gets Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong Kicked Off Flight

billie-joe-armstrong-kicked-off-southwest-flight-for-saggy-pants.jpg

Here we go again.

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong got booted off a Southwest flight on Thursday night after he refused to pull up his pants.

An eyewitness told San Francisco's ABC 7 news the plane was getting ready to take off when a flight attendant asked Armstrong to pull his pants up.

His response?

"Don't you have better things to do then worry about that?"

Apparently not, because the flight attendant asked him again and Billie Joe answered back with "I'm just trying to get to my f**king seat."

Unfortunately for the American Idiot rocker, he didn't make it to his seat and was promptly removed from the airplane.

Once he was removed, Billie Joe tweeted:

"Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f**k? No joke!"

Being oh so professional, Southwest tweeted back:

"Very sorry for your experience tonight, someone from our Customer Relations Team will reach out to you to get more details."

Do U think he should have been kicked off? Or should flight attendants stop playing fashion police and leave paying passengers alone???
