After being kicked off a flight earlier in the day, Alec Baldwin finally landed safely in New York Tuesday night and was photographed exiting JFK airport. The actor kept a rather low profile wearing his sunglasses as he wheeled his luggage through the crowd.
It's been a turbulent 24 hours for the star. The drama began to unfold yesterday afternoon at Los Angeles International Airport when Baldwin was reportedly asked to leave an American Airlines flight after refusing to turn off his mobile device while the plane was still at the gate.
News of the incident broke via Twitter, when other passengers on the plane used 140 characters to describe the situation. The 53-year-old almost immediately explained the happenings in his own words tweeting, "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt."
The Twitter lashing didn't end there. The "30 Rock" star continued his rant with a number of tweets promoting United Airlines, a competitor to his new nemesis American Airlines, as well as "Words With Friends," the game that he was reportedly playing at the time of the incident.
Baldwin was booked on a later flight and arrived in New York City late Tuesday evening.
