But Brandon wasn’t going out like that, no sir! He vowed, most likely through gritted teeth, that passengers aboard the flight witnessed the faux pas and would come forward. In a “no sooner said than done” response, they have started to do exactly that.
“He wasn’t being rowdy at all, and definitely not intoxicated,” says Elisabeth Schwarz, who was sitting next to the Percy Jackson actor – helping him run lines. “There was another exit row in front of us that was standing, drinking and making noise. We were all in shock when the attendant insinuated other passengers were complaining. The other flight attendant even told us we weren’t doing anything wrong,” she offered.
And in a totally gracious move Jackson said, “I realize this was just one flight attendant having a bad day and I appreciate the support of the other passengers, US Airways staff at the Phoenix airport, and the Phoenix airport police.”
