According to our eyewitness, Ashley Olsen remained calm during her close call on that Ny to LA United flight that had to make an “unscheduled” landing at Dulles Airport. “Ashley had four seats in a row in business class – one for her, her boyfriend Justin Bartha, her French bulldog puppy, and her bodyguard. The people in first class were really frightened because they saw the flames and smoke coming out of the cockpit.” Attendants raced around grabbing fire extinguishers, but passenger Phil Lobel, (traveling with his adorable dog Lucy) a Hollywood publicist, told us he didn’t realize how serious the situation was until he saw all the firetrucks and emergency equipment waiting for them at Dulles airport. The passengers, including Ashley, all met in the bar to toast “being alive” after the successful landing.

    Yeah, THAT’s how to celebrate not burning to death in an airplane crash, get drunk immediately! What a bunch of colossal losers!

    They should have gone into the airport chapel (most airports have one) and said a prayer of thanksgiving for being spared. If there was no chapel, they could just say a prayer anywhere.

    I agree they are a bunch of losers.

    Hmm, I think people who pray are a bunch of losers.

    Reedy, whatever you think: Fine. But the words of a relative who was on the front lines in Anzio, Italy, WW II….”There are no atheists in foxholes”.

    Four sets in Business class, NOT first Class – what’s up with that!

    What’s next Greyhound for them. Any smart lady knows to take Amtrak and hang out in the dining car talking to regular people.

    Anybody here ever ridden the City of New Orleans (aka the chicken bone express, as folks in the day use to buy a bucket of Chicken from KFC and enjoyed it on the ride down to Mississippi or New Orleans.

    ASK HEF if any of his playmates are fans of KFC Chicken and trains.

    Ask Priscilla or Lisa Marie and ride the Chicken bone express.

    Bet they will be shocked, somebody out in California knows about that little bit of trivia.

    What flight was that. I didn’t hear about a UAL flight having problems in the news.

    That’d be interesting to go read that NTSB report as that’s pretty serious – smoke in the cockpit especially flames as that’s virtually unheard of in this day and age.

    What do you want to bet, the flight attendent spilled her drink and it shorted something out on the console as you know how they like to lean over and look at what all the guys are doing up in the cockpit.

    As a soda or water wouldn’t do much but some alchol would definate create some flames.

    Hey that Ashley has the same kind of dog Priscilla likes. Boxers – Though, I would have thought she’d have a Westie or like that Taco Bell dog.

    Whatever happen to that Taco Bell dog ? People love that little dog.

    As compared to a boxer, boxer always running around with a boner.

    Reedy…I agree with you, well, don’t really CARE if they “pray” just think it’s a rediculous waste of time. About as productive as drinking afterwards.

    dandy lion…leave thanksgiving out of this..
    and guess what? If I was in a “foxhole” the LAST thing I’d be doing is wasting my time PRAYING!

    Have no problems with people praying. That is their right if you don’t believe in God that’s your business.

    I guess getting sloshed after almost being killed is the best way to handle the raw fear of thinking about what could have happened.

    Why is everybody assuming they all got drunk/sloshed when they toasted at the bar? The post doesn’t give that implication at all, so I guess people just want to assume the worst where celebs are involved.

    I guess, being the daughter of a raging alcoholic, that I just have issues with the idea of alcohol being the “go to” answer for a stressful situation. I look at it like this: if you can’t deal with the stresses of life without hiding behind a drink (or more) then, you’ve got a problem, and if YOU’VE got a problem, then so do all the people that care about you.

    Think about it.

    PS> Watching my dad die of cirrosis when I was 19 kind of left an indelible impression, if you know what I mean. So, I think I might kinda know what I’m talking about.

    Understood however to me it seems celebratory in this case (like a toast at a wedding, new years, etc) not that they went to get wasted after a stressful situation. I’d probably do the same and I don’t even drink often.

    Wonder what they had to drink ? A strawberryy Daquiri, a Margarita or a low calorie beer.

    The twins can flat-out hold their liquor. They can drink a sailor under the table. This is words of testimony from an acquaintance of MaryKate.

    RE: Reta’s 2nd comment:….”leave thanksgiving out of this”.

    So, if someone did you a priceless favor, such as push your kid out from in front of a car, or someone shielding your body in a plane going down, or a fireman rescuing you, then you think it would suck to give thanks? Just wondering if this is what you meant.

    Regarding your dad: That must have been an awful sad time for you, and I pray (oops) you have been able to put it behind you.
