Note Left On Plane Wing Freaks Out Passenger
You’d think that leaving a thoughtful memo on a damaged wing of a plane would calm any worried passengers who may see it.
“We know about this” was hand-written with an arrow pointing to a nice little chunk taken out of part of the wing and was met with outrage via the best means to express outrage – Twitter.
On July 28 a man spotted the note outside his window after the plane was already on it’s way to Seattle, and took to social media once they had landed and he was completely off the tarmac (so he says, but we all break the no phone rule when we have something angry to tell the internet).
Apparently a maintenance dude just wanted to let the crew know that he’s dealing with it, so chill, k?
Spokeswoman of Alaska Airlines Bobbie Egan said yesterday that the trim of the right wing flap was approved and the technician’s note was the “result of someone’s good intentions.”
This wasn’t someone’s miniature model plane though, and she acknowledged this by adding the message “was not appropriate and did not follow company procedures.”
The message was removed, but the plane continues to fall apart (just kidding, they’re totally working on it).

In case you hadn’t noticed, American Apparel and controversy are kind of a package deal. In fact, the LA-based brand has become arguably more infamous for its controversial commercial campaigns, than for its beloved basic tees and bodysuits.
