Alec Baldwin appeared during Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live this weekend, playing an American Airlines pilot bent on apologizing.
Alec, who was kicked off an American Airlines flight on Wednesday for refusing to stop playing Words with Friends on his phone, played Captain Steve Rogers, who wanted to apologize to "American Treasure" Alec for giving him the boot.
"Captain Rogers," who met with uproarious laughter throughout the sketch, apologized to Alec and told Weekend Update host Seth Meyers in a thick Southern accent, "What harm would it do to let him keep playing his game, not any game mind you, but a word game for smart people?"
When Meyers asserted that he thought phones interfered with the plane's communication system, the "pilot" replied, "You don't believe that, do you Seth? Would you really get on an airplane that flew 30,000 feet in the air, if you thought one Kindle switch could take it down? Come on! It's just a cruel joke perpetrated by the airline industry, and we would have gotten away with it, but Alec Baldwin was just too smart for us."
Alec also mocked American for late take-offs and their recent bankruptcy filing.
