After expressing his displeasure of having to sit in the lavatory, the pilot told him that he was in command of the flight and he was lucky to be on the plane. The passenger was not allowed to sit in the jump seat, only Jetblue employees are allowed to sit there. The flight encountered turbulence and passengers were told to return to their seats; however, this passenger had no seat to return to. I guess the pilot and his crew came to their senses, the passenger was finally allowed to return to his original seat.
If these allegations are true, I personally believe that pilot should not be allowed to fly another commerical flight again. Not only did he humiliate this passenger, he put him at risk. Nobody has that kind of authority or right, pilot or not.
I have flown Jetblue to the west coast on numerous occasions, and personally liked the airline. I was impressed with their service and the nice, roomy leather seats for the price. I've been on line checking their prices for a flight to Las Vegas in the coming weeks. I'm leary now! If I get up enough nerve and book a flight at a reasonable price, I'll post my assessment of their service. Pray that I don't end up in the toilet please!
