    Tamar Braxton Responds to Delta Airlines’ Statement Rebuking Her ‘Unusual Behavior’ Wednesday, August 1, 2018 Tamar Braxton has responded to a Delta Airlines statement blaming her “unusual behavior” and her refusal to follow a flight attendant’s instructions during a recent flight. Tamar’s sister Towanda accused a Delta pilot of ridiculing Tamar after the pilot left the safety of the reinforced cockpit to deal with the part-time singer’s unruly behavior. “@tamarbraxton got ridiculed by a pilot for flying while black on Delta,” Towanda wrote in an Instagram post dated July 28. “Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler...

    A Spirit Airlines passenger at Tampa International Airport was booted from his flight Sunday because he objected to a button worn by a black flight attendant that said, “Black Lives Matter, White Supremacy Kills.” “I said to her, ‘All lives matter,” passenger Robert Coyle told Tampa’s WTVT-13. “And she said, ‘I disagree with you. I disagree with you on so many levels.’ And then she went into some sort of memorized, ‘I really can’t speak politically while I am in uniform.'” That’s when Coyle took a photo of the button. The attendant said the picture violated airline rules and asked...

    Olivia Sievers, a flight attendant from Germany, often travels to Argentina for work. She came across a street dog outside of the hotel she was staying at one time, and gave him a little love.

She knew they were meant to be together, and before long she made arrangements to bring him home with her for good. She came across the dog while walking around near her hotel in Buenos Aires. Olivia gave him some food and played with...

    FARMINGTON HILLS (WWJ) – A Muslim flight attendant has filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEO) claiming she was suspended from her job for not serving alcohol — which is against her religious beliefs. Lena Masri, an attorney for the Council of American Islamic Relations Michigan (CAIR), says Charee Stanley followed management’s directions, working out an arrangement with her coworkers to accommodate passenger requests for alcohol. However, Masri said, ExpressJet Airlines put Stanley on administrative leave after another attendant filed “an Islamophobic complaint” that referenced Stanley’s head scarf. “We notified ExpressJet Airlines of its obligation under...

    US Airways has sparked outrage after a flight attendant allegedly refused to hang up an Army Ranger and combat veteran's jacket to stop it from creasing. First Sargent Albert Marle was wearing a jacket lined with medals when he boarded Flight 1930 from Portland, Oregon, to Charlotte, North Carolina, yesterday. But when he asked an attendant to hang up his 'Dress Blues' uniform, she reportedly refused, saying the coat closet was for first-class passengers only and he was seated in coach. 'Her response wasn't that there's not space in the coat closet or "I've hung too many jackets up",' said...

    Raw Video (2): An American Airlines flight attendant disrupted a flight Friday morning as it was about to take off from Dallas Fort/Worth en route to Chicago, saying over the aircraft intercom system that the plane was going to crash, alluding to 9/11 terrorist attacks and ranting about the airline's bankruptcy reorganization, passengers said. Passengers ended up restraining the flight attendant in the plane cabin until airport police arrived. Two flight attendants were injured in the incident and were taken to a local hospital. No passengers were injured, and they were never in danger, an airline spokeswoman said. The flight...

    Steven Slater has officially made his exit from JetBlue. This time, it is the airline that fired him. There won't be anymore cold beer and dramatic exit out of a chute-slide for Slater, the now-famous airline attendant who created a media frenzy when he quit his job on August 9. Slater, who managed to keep his name at the top of the Google trends for weeks, is back in the limelight after reports surfaced on Saturday that JetBlue officially canned him. CNN reports that Jenny Dervin, a spokeswoman for JetBlue, confirmed that Slater, 38, was let go sometime last week....

    The flight attendant's actions, however, set off an intense debate: When and how should bystanders intervene?

Howard Bragman, Chairman of media and public relations agency Fifteen Minutes, confirmed to CNN that he is now representing Slater and will help him assess offers to appear in proposed television programs inspired by Slater's dramatic exit from a JetBlue plane at New York's Kennedy Airport after he cursed a passenger over the public address system and deployed the emergency slide.

    A Brooklyn couple who pre-boarded JetBlue Flight 1052 on Monday said flight attendant Steven Slater's forehead was bleeding before all but one other passenger was allowed on the plane. Their account is the most recent to cast doubt on the flight attendant's version of the events that led to his now-famous exit via the plane's emergency chute. Marta and Rudyard Crichlow, who were returning from visiting family in Pittsburgh, were allowed on the flight early because they were traveling with their 20-month-old daughter, Grace. Ms. Crichlow said the plane was "empty' save one other passenger, a curly-haired man wearing eyeglasses....

    An internal memo from JetBlue’s chief operating officer to the airline’s staff and board of directors explicitly rebukes the actions taken by flight attendant Steven Slater as “unacceptable.” The document, which was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, offers the first timeline of events following Monday’s now-famous airplane exit by Slater, in which the apparently enraged flight attendant uttered expletives over the public address system, deployed the emergency chute and slid down to the tarmac with two beers in hand. But the memo also reveals that even at the highest levels of JetBlue, officials are still trying to determine what...
