On the plane's arrival, Mr Slater told passengers to stay in their seats until the plane stopped, according to Associated Press news agency. When a passenger stood up and opened the overhead locker, Mr Slater went to stop him but the bag struck him in the face. He then demanded an apology but the passenger cursed at him instead. Becoming irate, Mr Slater then used the loudspeaker to tell him off, before grabbing a beer from the galley and activating the slide.

After making his dramatic exit, he then walked to his car and drove away.

Going to be interesting to see how this story progresses. A lot of people want the passenger's head on a platter. I'd like to hear his version of things.

The guy seems very pleased with himself. Look for him on a reality show soon. Classy behavior like that won't go unrewarded by today's entertainment machine.

Not sure what it says about me, but my assumption the passenger was a "he" was apparently erroneous.

The NY Daily News reported that he was in the middle of having sex with his boyfriend when he was arrested. And he was smiling as big as anyone has ever seen.

Are you saying a gay man would be dismayed his boyfriend couldn't be impregnated?

Personally, I think grabbing a beer was a nice touch but what made it perfect was activating the inflatable slide to make his escape.

That's what is getting him in legal trouble. Despite the airline's claim that no one was ever in any danger, they are still charging him with reckless endangerment.

In a pathetic flight of lufthansa from croatia with a plane that was from ww2 and had 2 hours delay (so I was going to miss my transit flight to athens) I asked very politely to inform me whereas I would make my other flight or not.
I was met with scorn!
(never do that)
I proceeded to curse loudly in greek for the continuation of the flight (and to much the bemusement or fear of other passengers) untill a very polite air attentant came and expalined everything to me in detail.
it was very enjoyable

Do you know what I find the strangest thing? People who applaud when a plane successfully lands. It's not that big an event. The computer does it all anyway! And I've flown a bit and I've never had one go wrong. Some are better than others, mind you.

If you were flying a plane i was in then i would applaud too when it was over

The computer ones are always smoothest.

FAA regulations (in the US, at least) require at least one manual landing per month for each pilot. You can always tell, because it's rough.

I have heard that there is a tradition for Jews to clap when they reach Israel.

I don't know why anyone else applauds.

In older times air travel was a big deal and people were scared shitless (never admitting it of course).
Clapping when the plane touched the ground was their way to let their stress out and "voice" their relief.
I remember when I was a kid clapping happened a lot of times. Now almost never.

And how much will he make from TV interviews, newspaper exclusives etc?

And why does that make there being a crime called "criminal mischief" less funny?

I'm pretty sure most male flight attendants will pack your chute for a lot less than that.
