I apologize. The facebook post was very misleading. Here's the real story.
The New York Post has a Page 6 report about an incident that happened onboard an American Airlines flight from LAX to JFK.
It might be a little extreme, but if I was Tom Horton, the new CEO or American Airlines, I’d probably just ban celebrities. There was the Alec Baldwin incident as well as several other incidents on Southwest Airlines the last couple of years; it’s probably just better for everyone if celebrities take private jets.
At the very least, I’d institute a rule that limits the number of celebrities on a single flight. Such a policy would have avoided the kind of situation that happened on Monday when one celebrity refused to give up his seat to another celebrity.
According to the article, Al Roker, meteorologist for the Today Show, was returning from Los Angeles to JFK on American Airlines flight 4. American operates a 767-200 with a 3 cabin configuration, with Flagship First Class service and Al Roker was seated in 2H.
Next to him was Van Halen band member Alex Van Halen in seat 2J, and across the aisle from Roker was Van Halen’s wife Stine Schyberg in 2D (Eddie Van Halen and his wife, Janie Liszewsk, were seated in 3H and 3J).
Van Halen and his wife were unhappy about their seating assignments and complained (loudly according to witnesses) about the situation. So the gate agent asked Roker if he would mind moving and the weatherman declined....NYP
