Looks like Marco Rubio is the latest politician or celebrity to have it out with an airline.

According to the Florida senator's Twitter page, Rubio appeared to be trying to get to Washington last night for official Senate business when he was held up by American Airlines...again. He implies that the airline was lying about the nature of the delay, but he does take the time to thank the crew since it's "#nottheirfault."

Check out the full rant in the slideshow below, which Rubio hopes doesn't cost him his Executive Platinum status.

In December of last year, Alec Baldwin also took on American Airlines via twitter in the notorious Words With Friends incident. In May, Kardashian had words (or should we say tweets?) for British Airways after the airline apparently rummaged through her luggage, losing sentimental items. And, of course, there's the "too fat to fly" incident with Southwest that director Kevin Smith chronicled on his twitter.

Though it's not an airline, who could forget the time Donald Rumsfeld was patted down by the TSA in Chicago?
