JetBlue said Wednesday it will give vouchers to each passenger who was on a plane when a flight attendant apparently got into an altercation before grabbing some beer and sliding off the plane through the escape chute.
Meanwhile, flight attendant Steven Slater, who faces criminal charges in the incident, said the support he's received from members of the public is "encouraging."
Each passenger on the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to New York flight Monday will receive a $100 voucher, the airline said.
"This is consistent with our long standing policies," spokesman Steve Stampley told CNN. "JetBlue often provides vouchers to our customers when they experience a disruption or otherwise abnormal circumstance. This event falls into that category."
Slater told CNN affiliate WABC Wednesday that the support has been "so encouraging and so special."
"There's some really great people out there, and I'm getting a glimpse of that," he said. "It's a surprise because, obviously, I have been away for a little while."
