Steven Slater told the CBS' "The Early Show" on Wednesday that he knew if he went out the front door he "was probably coming right back." Slater said he felt a "slow burn" while coping with a crowd of rushed passengers on the Aug. 9 flight from Pittsburgh.
On NBC's "Today," Slater said he'd been out the night before and was sleep-deprived. But he also told ABC's "Good Morning America" that he was never impaired.
Slater avoided jail under a plea bargain that requires him to undergo counseling and substance-abuse treatment. He must pay $10,000 in restitution to JetBlue Airways Corp.
