Associated Press (via 9to5) reports that yesterday, Alec Baldwin was kicked off a plane at Los Angeles International Airport when the plane was about to depart for New York.

Baldwin, a prolific Twitter user, took to the social media site to vent, saying a “flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing Words With Friends while we sat at the gate, not moving.” [...]

It wasn’t clear if passengers had been asked to turn off their cellphones, which is typical before a flight backs away from the terminal.

Baldwin, tweeting from his iPhone around 2PM PST yesterday, notes: no wonder the airline is bankrupt.

He got on another American flight to New York, but Baldwin said it would be his last AA flight, mentioning #theresalwaysunited (there’s always United Airlines). Well, at least Baldwin still get to use his Mac.

    I’ve always liked this guy and now I know why, as a Mac and an iPhone user, it’s obvious he has great taste!

    • And talk about resolve. That must be a good game session. He choose the iPhone game over American Airlines.

      As for the record, I’ve never had problem on United.
