Scott Disick Annoys Fellow Passengers On Southwest Flight On Sunday
The Kardashian baby daddy was flying from Chicago to Long Island for a party in the Hamptons.
A fellow flier, Jeff Glass, told the Post that Disick was in such a rush to get to local hotspot Dune that he "refused to wait in line [to board] . . . and tried to cut ahead of a young couple holding twin babies. He then tried to cut in front of an older man who said, 'Who is this schmuck?' He offered $20 to the gate attendant to let him on ahead of everyone else."
A flight attendant reportedly yelled at Disick repeatedly, who blamed his secretary for having to wait.
Naturally, one flight attendant was so "star-struck" that an emergency exit row was saved for Disick.
Disick's rep told the paper: "He never offered any bribes and didn't cut in front of a couple with twins. Yes, a flight lady did save him an exit row because she was a fan. The flight had an emergency landing in Detroit, and Southwest had to find another plane and it took 10 hours to get to New York."
UPDATE: Our previous report that his flight, Southwest #1208, was not diverted proved false after confirmation from a Southwest spokeswoman. The flight was delayed in Chicago due to thunderstorms in the area, and then diverted to Detroit due to a mechanical issue. Though the ordeal, between the weather and the diversion, did add 5 hours to the trip, it did not take 10 hours to reach its final destination of Long Island, as stated by Disick's rep. A Southwest rep also told AOL Travel that an email was sent to all passengers on board apologizing for the delay.
No matter, Disick clearly had a good time once he got to the Hamptons, as his girlfriend and baby mama Kourtney tweeted that she was heading home from a birthday celebration.
Meanwhile, his maybe future sister-in-law, Kim, got engaged last week. Check out coverage of the multi-million dollar engagement below.
