Alec Baldwin Saturday Night Live

Alec Baldwin Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin dropped in on Saturday Night Live this weekend for a skit mocking the airline industry, issuing a fake apology from a pilot who kicked him off an American Airlines flight for playing a smart-phone game before departure.
During the satirical news skit, Baldwin posed as the pilot of a plane he was forced to disembark earlier in the week at Los Angeles International Airport for refusing to stop playing Words With Friends on his mobile phone.
Asked by SNL news anchor Seth Meyers about the incident, Baldwin, in character as the captain responded:
“It was awful. That’s why it was very important for me to come here and on behalf of everyone at American Airlines issue an apology to Mr Alec Baldwin… an American treasure,” said Baldwin, dressed in a pilot’s uniform and fake mustache.
The 30 Rock star also mocked the airline rule that electronic devices be turned off during takeoff and landing.
“Would you really get on an airplane that flies 30,000 feet in the air if you thought one Kindle switch would bring it down? C’mon! It’s just a cruel joke perpetrated by the airline industry,” Baldwin-as-pilot said.
The actor attempted to turn around criticism from other passengers for delaying the flight by tweaking the airline’s on-time record.
“It was the first time in the history of American Airlines that one of our flights was delayed,” said Baldwin-as-pilot.
