LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alec Baldwin issued an apology Wednesday to fellow passengers on an American Airlines flight that was delayed by his refusal to stop playing a cellphone game.

The "30 Rock" actor's note, posted to the Huffington Post, didn't apologize to the airline or the flight attendant involved in the Tuesday incident.
Instead, Baldwin said he's aware that airlines struggle financially but the result is that air travel has devolved into an inelegant experience post-9/11.
Baldwin's dustup with American Airlines continued for a second day Wednesday, with the airline taking to social media to maintain it was following federal regulations when it booted an "extremely vocal customer" from a flight for refusing to shut off his cellphone.
The airline, which earlier cited passenger privacy in declining to discuss the matter, said on its Facebook page it decided "to provide the actual facts of the matter" after Baldwin stated publicly he had gotten kicked off the flight.Read More »from Baldwin apologizes to passengers, not airline
