“The Office” star Rainn Wilson took to Twitter on Friday to eviscerate US Airways after missing a flight from the Philadelphia International Airport to Scranton, where the cast of the fictional Pennsylvania paper company Dunder Mifflin was to attend the series’ wrap party.

The actor’s frustration only grew as he realized another connecting flight wouldn’t be available for hours.

He wrote that he and six other cast members were being forced to rent cars and drive the two-and-a-half mile journey from Philadelphia to Scranton.

Wilson claimed the small flight left 10 minutes early and noticeably missing several members.

The actor then posted a purported text exchange between himself and a US Airways representative during which Wilson dished out some career advice, suggesting the employee “go work at American,” capping off the diss with, “Oh, and watch our Season Finale!”

Apparently unsatisfied with the representative’s response, Wilson continued his rampage.

Wilson apparently made it to the wrap party – eventually – he tweeted the following late Saturday night after sharing a Vine clip of the festivities.

Still, based on the exchange, don’t expect the actor to patronize US Airways again anytime soon.
