JetBlue Flight Attendant Seeks Soft Landing in Court Appearance

Steven Slater, the "working-class hero" JetBlue flight attendant who made a dramatic exit from a plane last month after a confrontation with a passenger, appeared in court in Queens, N.Y., today. His lawyer indicated that the defense has been involved in plea negotiations, trying to avoid any jail time.

The prosecution reportedly stated that they are receptive to the plea talks, but also stressed the seriousness of the incident that resulted in Slater's being charged with trespassing, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. His next court appearance is scheduled for October 19.

Oh, also, Slater's lawyer wants you to know that he wasn't fired by JetBlue, but quit.

Now put your seatbelt on, sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of your day.
