Baldwin was ejected from an American Airlines flight prior to take-off on December 6 because he refused to stop playing the game 'Words with Friends' on his iPhone.
The actor subsequently launched into a tirade against American Airlines on Twitter and even spoofed the incident on Saturday Night Live.
30 Rock creator Fey discussed her co-star Baldwin's recent controversy on The Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday (January 5) and revealed that she is partly to blame.
"Alec, bless his heart, he had some trouble on the plane a few weeks ago," Fey told David Letterman. "When I heard that news story, my first reaction [and] the thing that I was upset about was [that] last spring… I said to [Alec], 'Hey, there's this really fun game called Words With Friends'."
She continued: "[I told him] 'It's a lot like Scrabble, but different. You should get it'… He was like, 'I don't know'. So anyway, I didn't think he ever got it because he's never invited me to play him! But, apparently he did buy it."
The American Airlines incident resulted in New York grocery chain Wegmans Food Markets pulling a television advertisement starring Baldwin from the air.
The company later resumed airing the ads and apologised to Baldwin following an outcry from the public.
Fey and Baldwin's series 30 Rock returns Thursday, January 12 at 8/7c on NBC.
