jst3p: tripleseven: On a flight recently, I saw the stewardess tell a kid three farking times to shut off his hone for landing.  Each time, he nodded, then continued to ignore her.

Really, it's not hard to be without your phone for 20 minutes.

Oh, yeah, and before the internet electrical engineer brigade gets on here to tell me that "it's no big deal"  well, I suppose, but lets just say something did happen, would you want to be the assfark who just killed 100 people cause you didn't want to listen?


If it were possible for a cell phone to bring down a plane they would require that they be checked. Your "what if" is silly.


Then the kids learned a valuable lesson: even if you think rules and laws are silly, you still need to follow them or there are consequences.

If nothing else, the rule means other passengers are spared from listening to one side of an asinine phone conversation for an extra 5 minutes and for that it's worth it. If they need to use an excuse about radio signals and guidance systems to shut people up, that's fine.

Kyosuke: TNel: Ok now I feel even less pity.

"They treated us like we were terrorists; I've never seen anything like it. I'm not someone to make these kinds of statements," Zehavi said. "I think if it was a group of non-religious kids, the air stewardess wouldn't have dared to kick them off."

They have to play that card. It's the only one they have.


What right does a woman have telling them what to do anyway?
 
2013-06-04 03:35:20 PM
Should have turned it off as soon as they closed the doors. The chaperones should have known better that this is the rule for all flights and not just stupidly stood by until they were told to turn them off multiple times.

There will be a lot of lawyers to fight. Airline will probably settle.

I would like to know if any of the passengers who remained on the plane has made any kind of a statement yet?  I'd really like to hear what the other passengers on the plane felt about the incident.  I have a feeling the airline was not in the wrong.

i really wonder why they deleted my comment...

This is why I am a member of every religion, because even though there is no proof, any of them might be right. It is also why I do what my horroscope tells me, and why I believe absolutely everything I read on the internet. Better safe than sorry!

It is nice to meet a fellow idiot on the internet. We should get together and do idiot things.

Back in the day, most Rabbis were bright enough to know better than trying to defend actions of spoiled crotchfruit.
There is no winning position, as usual, for these Jews.
And, as usual, it was self imposed.

I've always wanted to see that happen.  Some dickbag breaking every traffic law known to man with no cops around when behind the next hill, Mr. Chopper surfaces.  The driver slows down, but it's too late, missiles are locked, guns already blazing towards Dr. Dickbag.  In a flash, the bullets hit the car just as the missiles vaporize the car and knock its existence from the road surface.  The crowd goes wild.

From another article:

 Here's an explanation from Southwest spokesman Brad Hawkins to us:
"Our crew, responsible for the overall safety of AirTran flight 345 from New York LaGuardia to Atlanta on Monday, had a group of non-compliant passengers leave the aircraft before departing the gate.
"Reports from flight attendants and other customers confirm some passengers in the group would not sit down in their seats and some were using their mobile devices. Both are violations of federal air regulations, as well as our policies.
"The crew, led by the captain, asked several times that the passengers comply with regulations. The issue ultimately delayed the flight's departure to Atlanta. All members of the group were accommodated on other flights."
The airline denied accusations that the students were targeted because they were Orthodox Jews or that airline employees acted too hastily to boot them off, as some of those kicked off have alleged.
"They treated us like we were terrorists," Jonathan Zehavi told CNN. "I think if it was a group of non-religious kids,  the air stewardess wouldn't have dared to kick them off."
(We hope none in the group called the flight attendants "stewardesses" on board the flight.)
 
2013-06-04 03:42:17 PM
Maybe they should have taken the train.
 
2013-06-04 03:42:54 PM

jst3p: I find it kind of funny that your example to support a bullshiat position is another bullshiat position:


They still have the no cell phone warnings at the gas stations around here, and they can cause static, which that article admits is a threat. It's one of those things you can't count on happening, so it's hard to quantify, but people try to be safe anyway.

But you're more than welcome to not take such precautions. Be sure to argue with the flight staff about it, too.

MadMonk: This reminds me of a kid that started college where I work, he walks around telling everyone he's one of God's chosen people and nobody has the right to tell him what to do. I'm not exaggerating, not even other Jewish people like him.


I work for Hasids. One day one of the owners brought in one of his 14 children who is about 12-14 years old. IAC, he came around the corner at the same time as one of the top guys here (poly sales office), they bumped into each other. The guy here said "excuse me" the little boy said "you better be nicer to me and get out of my way, I'm going to own this place one day" or something to that effect. He's now 25 and acts no better.

2013-06-04 03:49:04 PM
Either:

- An entire airline crew engaged in mass discrimination knowing 100+ teenagers with video capable cell phones were their target and felt their disgust and vicious glee would be overlooked by other passengers

or

- 100+ entitled students armed with video capable cell phones behaved like a bunch of rowdy farkheads, got kicked off the plane and withheld their video footage until they can edit it

I dunno, that's a stumper.

Kyosuke: Tom_Slick: BunkoSquad: "Next year at Six Flags!"

I am trying to figure out why the hell a group from an overpriced NY private school planned a senior trip to Atlanta.  I mean Six Flags is OK but for the passed few years they seem to be on the deferred maintenance plan, the aquarium nice but not of interest to most people above the age of 12, white water rafting on the same river where they filmed Deliverance, a little weird considering there are much better rafting opportunities in the Northeast. Atlanta is an airport you pass through going to somewhere good.

They got a deal.


Who would pay full retail for such a thing?
 
2013-06-04 03:49:31 PM

berylman: Always did wonder about that. Great bluff


They really do it (or did at one point.)  They have paint markings on the ground a know distance apart, then time how long it takes you to get from one to the other.

I'm not sure if it's still legal, but thats how it was done.

It's the little things that make me smile. For instance, I'm very glad the author said "one hundred one" instead of "one hundred and one" as the former is correct when indicating 101 of something, whereas the latter means 100.1 of something.

Also (I said this in another thread about this) Airtran attendents are coonts. They'll kick you off for looking at them wrong. I was threatened by an attendant for telling my seatmate that the reason the plane was doing maintenance on the tarmac with us onboard instead of at the gate before we boarded was so they could protect their "on time departure" numbers. The stewardess got up, came back to my seat in (business class) and told me in a no-nonsense voice that I needed to settle down. Someone behind me said "he got in trouble for telling the truth"

That is being "disruptive" to those pricks and they WILL kick you off for less.

StaleCoffee: - 100+ entitled students armed with video capable cell phones behaved like a bunch of rowdy farkheads, got kicked off the plane and withheld their video footage until they can edit it

 

If they were all behaving and obeying the rules, all their phones would be turned off an unable to take video.

Try this one on.  Either:

- One or two of the flight crew were having a bad day and overreacted.

or

- 100+ students with chaperones from the Jewish school were all being uncontrollable hellions.

Still stumped?

FTA: Another student in the group, Michael Mamiye, said he was one of the first to be kicked off the plane. He said a flight attendant did not give him a chance to turn off his cell phone before asking him to "get off the plane."

How many other students around him were asked in the meantim? Probably more than one. He should have taken the hint the first time the flight attendant told one of his classmates to turn off their phone instead of thinking the request didn't apply to him.

Thanks!  how'd you know?

but seriously, to imply that asking a question benignly written, looking for no more than an objective view into the incident is in any way improper is utterly ridiculous.
