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.”
