Alec Baldwin Removed From American Airlines Flight

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 7th 2011 6:30AM
Alec Baldwin entered into an online tirade against American Airlines last night after he was removed from a flight at LAX airport. The actor was reportedly playing 'Words With Friends' on his cell phone when he was asked to turn it off.

According to TMZ
flight attendants asked him to shut off his cell phone in the middle of a game after the cabin door closed, but while the plane was still at the gate.

A police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told 'The Los Angeles Times' that Baldwin was escorted off an American Airlines flight. The source said police were not involved in the incident, which he said was between the airline and the actor.

Mad Men: The Inheritance

J Hamm(S02E10) This seemed an oddly structured episode, with the emphasis more on Betty than Don, with a splash of Pete and Kinsey thrown in. The idea that life was simpler in the old days, should anyone still think that adage applies, is disproved with every hour of Mad Men that unfolds.

For Betty, the impending death of her father has shaken her to the core. A series of strokes has led to dementia and when Don accompanies Betty to visit him in her childhood home, she has to come to grips with not only the fact that he's slipping away, but also be reminded that nearly every vestige of her mother has also gone.

Mad Men: Three Sundays

Mad Men
(S02E04) "That was beautiful. Are you going to say Grace now?" - Peggy's mom, to the priest

This episode brought a big smile to my face for one reason: Pete was wining and dining the Gorton's people! I grew up a few blocks away from the Gorton's headquarters, so it was great to see them as the latest client of Sterling Cooper. Hopefully we'll see them in the future too as we've repeatedly seen Belle Jolie, Utz, and Mohawk Airlines.

The rest of the episode shows how intricate this show is. It sort of worries me in a way. How can people who didn't see the first season get into this show, the characters, the rhythms, the seven different stories that each character is carrying around with them? How does the show grow in viewership? I don't know. I just know I love it and other dedicated fans do too, and I hope that's enough for many years to come.

Mad Men: Flight 1

(S02E02) "Supermarket checkout girl? The conversation must be stimulating." - Joan, to Paul, about his new girlfriend

It must be hard to deal with the death of an actor on a current show. Not just the death itself, of course, but how to deal with the fact that the actor won't be playing the character anymore. On some shows, one of the leads dies, and you're left with either replacing the character with another actor, ending the show completely, or having the character die on the show too. I didn't think Mad Men would even deal with the character of Pete's dad (played by Christopher Allport, who died in January), since he was only in one episode of the first season. They could have easily referred to him, sight unseen. But they've chosen to have him die in the American Airlines plane crash in Jamaica Bay, and this could actually prove to be an interesting catalyst for future Pete stories.

CNBC special covers American Airlines

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 1st 2006 7:01PM
cnbcOn October 18 at 9 pm CNBC is airing the two-hour documentary Inside American Airlines: A Week in the Life. CNBC was allowed unprecedented access to most of the departments within American Airlines, the biggest airline in the world. A special like this would have been, at best, mildly interesting six years ago, but the change the industry has went through since 9/11 has me much more intrigued about how operations are handled on a daily basis. I rarely fly anywhere, but those who do will find out why the same seat cost more for one person than another, and why frequent flyer miles are so difficult to trade in. Peter Greenberg will serve as anchor for the documentary, which will be rebroadcast at midnight.
