JetBlue attendant flips out at JFK, flees through emergency chute "Coffee, tea or — I’m out of here!A crazed JetBlue flight attendant who lost his cool after a flight from Pittsburgh landed at JFK Airport today hurled obscenities at passengers over the airliner’s public address system and then deployed the emergency chute to make a dramatic escape.Steven Slater, the attendant-turned-wingnut, dashed from the tarmac to his silver Jeep Wrangler parked in an employee lot and raced home to Belle Harbor, where he was arrested by Port Authority cops.Slater, 39, was charged with criminal mischief and reckless endangerment.The meltdown was preceded by an argument with a passenger, who sources said told Slater 'to f--- off' after being told by Slater not to remove baggage from the overhead compartment.The passenger insisted on opening the overhead compartment, hitting Slater in the head with the door as it dropped down.After the plane landed and pulled up to Gate 3 at the JetBlue terminal, and as passengers began moving to the door, sources said Slater got on the public address system and launched into a tirade.'To the f----ing ass---- that told me to f--- off, it’s been a good 28 years!' Slater bellowed, according to law enforcement sources. continued here
