‘Flightplan’ Boycott

'Flightplan' Boycott

The Guardian has reported that the Professional Flight Attendants Association (which consists of 80,000 members) has announced a boycott of current Jodie Foster hit, Flightplan.

The reason? “‘We will tell Hollywood that this disrespect to our profession is not going to fly,’ said Patricia Friend, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants. She added that the film was an ‘outrage’ for not properly crediting the flight attendants’ role as first responders.”

In other news, look for a boycott of The Corpse Bride by wedding planners everywhere.
