United Airlines flight attendant jumps down emergency slide

New York Daily News New York Daily News 6/04/2016 ALFRED NG

A United Airlines flight attendant swooped off a plane on the emergency slide and right out of a job.

The straight chuter jumped out shortly after Flight 1246 landed at the Bush Intercontinental Airport from Sacramento on Monday at about 11:30 a.m.

She opened the emergency door and deployed the evacuation chute, chucking her purse out the plane before sliding down the Boeing 737 plane and casually walking away.

There was no emergency and the eccentric slide was done on purpose, United Airlines spokesman Charlie Hobart told the Daily News.

The unnamed flight attendant is no longer an employee for the company, the United rep said.

She got off the plane before any of the 159 passengers or her five fellow crew members did because of the slip-up.

The flight attendant’s family said she was “doing well” and the stunt was a “private family matter,” KPRC reported.

The United slider is not facing charges for the stunt, as Houston police did not respond to the incident, officials said.

The plane was taken out of service briefly to fix the emergency chute, which cost United thousands of dollars, Hobart told the News.

“It was relatively quick, it did not take a long time,” he said. “We were able to get it back into service and it didn’t inconvenience any of our customers.”

It’s unclear why the United Airlines worker went coasting down the emergency slide, but this isn’t the first time a flight attendant has done this.

In 2010, a JetBlue flight attendant quit his job after grabbing some beer from the flight and bolting out the emergency slide at JFK Airport — then went home to have sex with his boyfriend.
