DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Alec Baldwin’s continued attack on American Airlines is earning him fewer fans in North Texas.

One day after being removed from a flight for refusing to put away his cell phone, Alec Baldwin wrote an op-ed piece for the Huffington Post comparing flying the Fort Worth-based airline to “a Greyhound bus experience.”

Dallas-based Greyhound hasn’t taken too kindly to Baldwin’s slight, issuing an open letter to Baldwin saying in part the comparison was unfair because the bus service offers free Wi-Fi on buses, adding that Baldwin wouldn’t be required to turn off his electronic device.

American Airlines hasn’t had any official comment on the matter, but said on their facebook page that a “passenger was removed from the flight and denied boarding,” for his comments and attitude in dealing with the fight crew.

Baldwin has apologized to fellow passengers on the plane.  Greyhound CEO Dave Leach took the opportunity to invite Baldwin to travel with him from New York to Boston to “see first-hand what a great ride Greyhound can be.”
