"Steven Slater, the JetBlue attendant who told a passenger to fuck off, grabbed a beer, and then fled down an emergency slide, has told police that he’s HIV positive, sources tell the New York Daily News."

The airline had no right to play Russian Roulette with its passengers lives. http://www.fightnow.org
