For the second time this summer, flight attendant Steven Slater is saying good bye to JetBlue, but this time it is the airline giving him the boot, has learned.

Slater made headlines in August when he made a dramatic exit from his job at JetBlue.  After losing his cool with passengers, Slater announced he was quitting.  He grabbed two beers, deployed the emergency slide and made his great escape.

At first he was considered a working class hero who did what many dream of doing: telling the boss to stick it.  But as more information came out, his halo disappeared.

JetBlue, which had initially suspended Slater, has now confirmed he's been let go for good. An airline spokesperson said that the "separation"  occurred last week.
