It could have been planned ahead of time, sure. I can see how riding the chute with beer in hand would be a fun way to quit. The arrest probably put a major damper on it though. The price he'll end up paying for it may make him realize it was much better as a fantasy, than as a reality.
Maybe he's been waiting for 20 years just for a chance to ride the chute, and this was the only way he could think of to get away with doing it. I'd recommend the thrill of an amusement park for any other flight attendants holding onto that dream. Maybe try skydiving.
LOL! Yeah, an amusement park WOULD be a better choice for anyone with that problem. Maybe someone will develop an amusement park ride that ends with you sliding down a real airplane chute. That would be swell.
Flight Attendant Union to Slater -- We Got Your Back
8/12/2010 12:05 AM PDT by TMZ Staff
Steven Slater officially has the biggest flight attendant union on the planet in his corner -- we're told his new ally wants to give him everything from legal resources to therapy ... and he ain't even a member.A rep for the Association of Flight Attendants tells TMZ, "We want to advance the profession no matter what. Sometimes in order to do that we must help people who may not necessarily be members."
According to the rep, the AFA is prepared to provide Steven with legal assistance if he wants it -- which might be helpful because he is currently charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of criminal mischief and one count of criminal trespass.
FYI -- the AFA represents over 50,000 flight attendants from 22 airlines -- but JetBlue ain't one of 'em.
