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."

And it's a lovely message for the school to blame the airline, instead of their own rotten students that can't behave like adults for a few damn minutes. If you can't behave on an airplane, you don't belong on one. You don't get a second chance to shut up and sit down and turn off your phone. You do it or get the hell off.

It's not the attendants job to threaten you. I'm thinking maybe the first 8 times they asked you to turn it off, and when the captain came back and asked you all, was enough.

Meh, no mercy. You delay the takeoff by 5 or 10 minutes I might be more forgiving, but when everyone has to be asked individually to comply with the farking rules, and you've delayed other people's flights by 45 minutes, causing them to miss connections to where they're going, you're just being a bunch of inconsiderate A-holes. Delays like that cost airlines tens of thousands of dollars as other planes end up jamming up in the pattern, waiting at gates, and creating ground traffic logjams. I hope the other people who were inconvenienced sue the school for their trouble.

deadspace: i actually posted on CNN's forum and it seems they deleted it.  All i said was the following:

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...


I posted about the same thing, had someone reply by linking  this comment from a passenger
TLDR:  Kids brought too much crap for overhead baggage area, flight delayed while some had to be checked, during this time kids were non-compliant, antsy, and disruptive.  Captain tells all passengers to calmly deboard, after which the airline told chaperons that a few of the students would not be allowed back on the flight.  Chaperons tell airline they can't just leave kids behind, so kicking a few off would be kicking them all off, airline told them okay then.

It amazes me how so many people either don't realize or don't give a fark how loud they're being.  I was on a flight out of ATL, and there were a handful of teenage girls traveling with I guess some of their moms.  They were about 6-8 rows behind us.  I was sitting right by one of the engines, and had my earphones in and set to max volume, and I could still hear every word they said, as if they were talking to me directly.  Why do people shout at someone who is right beside them?  Just use a normal farking talking voice.  If they are only 2 feet away from you, your voice doesn't need to travel 30 feet for them to hear you.

We took our son out to a restaurant for the first time when he was just over 2 months old.  We were both nervous about him having an outburst and disturbing people (Don't know why, he's a quiet baby), but we knew we had to bite the bullet sooner or later.  He slept half the time, and spent the rest just calmly looking around.  I realized how foolish I was for worrying about him disturbing someone, when every time I go out to eat, I have to listen to the conversation someone else is having on the other side of the dining room.  From now on, I'm officially not going to give a fark if my baby cries for a minute in a restaurant.  Everyone else is being just as loud, if not worse, and is old enough to know better.

Dear Staff of Joel Braverman High School at Yeshiva of Flatbush:

Airtran did not remove your schoolchildren and their chaperones from the plane for Flying Whilst Orthodox; they were removed because a) the kids were being insufferable shiats who apparently are too damned derpy and distracted to be able to read the in-flight safety brochures and listen to the pre-flight safety instruction that pretty explicitly says "no phones in flight, and no electronic devices until the captain gives the OK and even then the iDevices need to be in airplane mode" and b) your chaperones were doing an utterly piss-poor job at chaperoning and making sure the insufferable shiats mentioned in a) actually followed the instructions of the stewardess.

Perhaps if your chaperones did their job (making sure the kids turned off the electronic devices and pay attention to the safety instructions so they can know what to do in case something goes Very Wrong during flight) and the kids followed the instructions (which are not just a thing that the flight attendant makes up to be an Evil Nazi Meanie but are part of FAA instructions and thus are federal laws), we'd not have to worry about this.

(And just in case you wonder why the attendant gets extra persnickety on this on takeoff and landing--"flight" is basically the art of falling without hitting the ground.  Takeoff and landing are the most dangerous times in flight because you're trying to throw the airplane up in the air in such a way that it will fall without hitting, and then gently having it fall instead of smacking very hard and very fast into the ground.  This also happens to be the times that the pilots REALLY tend to rely on THEIR electronic doodads.)

Shalom,
-GPD

It's no problem on a brand new aircraft where all the wiring is perfect and properly insulated.

Mythbusters even proved though, that all it takes is the right wire to be touching a bit of aluminum bulkhead to make radio signals cause instruments to glitch out.

It's one of those things that's completely unpredictable.

wingnut396: If having phones on did cause such massive interference in commercial aircraft that it was a danger to the plane:
1. It would have happened by now
2. We would have to check the damned things upon entry so they could be stored in a shielded container.


I think the biggest issue with electronics at take-off & landing is that those two moments are when they are most likely to have an emergency.  If the flight crew needs to quickly dish out instructions, they don't want people messing around with angry birds or listening to music on their noise cancelling headset.  It's entirely true that a handful of people will be buried in a book and wearing earplugs, but that's generally not the case, and earplugs are not as ubiquitous as electronics on a plane. They want people to be able to listen to instructions and quickly act on them.  That's also why they want seats and trays up-- so you are not fiddling with the tray table or the reclined seat in front of you as you're trying to get to the aisle.

Once the plane gets in the air, they have plenty of time to run diagnostics if something on the plane isn't working, or get everyone's attention if there is an emergency.  The reason the phone continues to be banned, as another poster pointed out, is that it's attempting to handshake with every cell tower it can talk to and wasting bandwidth on multiple towers at once.

Of course it's way easier to tell everyone it interferes with communications than to talk about the plane potentially landing in the Hudson river, requiring a prompt exit.

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?


Well, let's think about that for second. Airlines are fairly sensitive about their departure times. Airports want their gates cleared and their take-off slots used as per planned. Aircrew know that it's not career-enhancing to mess with either. The likelihood of a single member of the flight crew being allowed to cause a 45 minute delay on a whim is pretty close to zero. The likelihood that being in a large group will cause a sizable percentage of teenagers to go from annoying to insufferable? Almost a given. No, I'm not stumped at all. Flight crew as a rule want passengers to sit down, buckle up, stow their carry-ons and be ready for push-back on time.

All of the kids were hellions? No. But if the flight crew had picked out 10 offenders, they would have had to ask for volunteers from among the chaperones, and wouldn't that have made for some lovely wrangling? Nope, kick the group off. It's educational for young people to encounter an authority that doesn't budge - too bad they had to wait until this late in life.

How many other students around him were asked in the meantimE? 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.

I can't hear everything said in the vicinity of 109 quiet people.   You've made some interesting assumptions about the superhuman senses these kids should have.    I don't think that your conclusion is reasonable.   He may have not had any reasonable warning.   Passenger compartment speakers are not always clear, so broadcast messages may not have been understandable.


Thank you for fixing the missing "e" in "meantime". I saw it after and cursed my proofreading! I hang my head in shame.

I've flown a lot in my life. I usually have minimal trouble hearing the announcements, but that's because I pay attention. Even as a teenager I did - but I treated flying like a privilege and still do.

A plane is a very crowded thing and conversations can be heard, especially when the same thing is repeated multiple times. Flight attendants tend to be a little louder in these situations so they don't have to repeat the same message to EVERY SINGLE PERSON. They may give a gentle reminder the first time or two but, if they see a pattern, they don't want to waste time because passengers on the ground get restless and want to fly.

I don't think I'm making poor assumptions about the situation.

There are degrees of risk. A cell phone isn't going to bring down a plane by itself, but phones can interfere with nearby electronics. If a citation is needed for that, put a GSM phone next to your computer speakers. You'll hear occasional bursts of interference even if it's not making a call.

I have no problem with the airlines using a "better safe than sorry" policy. Even if there were only a one-in-a-million chance that interference from a phone could contribute to an accident, with the number of people travelling each year it would be an unacceptable risk to allow everyone to use their phones.

RF sometimes behaves in strange ways. There was a story on Slashdot yesterday about a beer fridge interfering with cellular signals in Australia. Considering how many important radio-based systems there are on an airplane (communication, VHF navigation signals, GPS, TCAS, etc.) and how many different types of personal electronics there are in the world, it's a bold statement to claim that there will never be any harmful interference, even from defective devices.

I'm giving this a 99% likely scenario that this was the kids' (or at least a few of them) fault.

I fly 2-3 times a week for work and on multiple occasions, I've witnessed the same flight attendant have to ask someone sitting near me multiple times to shut down a device.  Even then, that person usually waits till the attendant is in their take-off seat and pulls their iPad/laptop right out and continues working or watching movies.

Given the financial implications of running an airline, it'd be ridiculous to let a plane take off with 109 seats empty (especially if it only seats 125 as another poster said).  Kicking someone out has to be a last resort for some really poor behavior.  Kicking off 109 people wouldn't be done without a really compelling airtight reason. There's no question the airline had to have reviewed everything the crew used to justify the decision, and they are standing behind their staff.

Unless there's some really other facts behind this, I'm with the airline here.

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"

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.

ceebeecates4: doglover: TNel: Sorry you should have told your students to stop messing around and sit and listen.

Used to be 7 teachers could control 100 students in public because if and when you acted up they had authority to punish you. Hell, Victorian teachers had more leeway than military interrogations do now.

Now, it's freakin' impossible. Not only do teachers not have the legal and social authority to punish kids, the kids know it.

I think you have it backwards.  8 chaperones can't begin to properly control 100 kids.  Maybe my class was terrible, but I remember having 5-6 chaperones for just 20 kids.  That being said, I went to a high school that could still motivate with its punishments.  (CSB: 5-day Sun-Fri boarding school making you stay the weekend was always a nasty punishment.)


The summer after 8th grade, I went on a one-week trip to the East Coast that was run by the school.  Only kids who were invited got to go, so the worst troublemakers were already excluded.  Two dozen 14-year-olds and three adult chaperones.  Now, clearly my memory of things will be biased, but I don't think we were much trouble.  The flight attendants never had to ask us to sit down and shut up; we stayed in our seats the entire flight and, while we certainly chatted excitedly with each other, there were never any complaints made to the flight crew or our chaperones about us being too noisy.  It was a red-eye flight, too, so I'm pretty sure if we'd been too loud  someone who needed sleep would have biatched.

Of course, before we left, all the students were told in no uncertain terms that if they created trouble on the trip, they would be shipped home on the first available flight and their parents billed for the airfare, on top of what they'd already paid for the trip.  None of us wanted to have to call our parents from the other side of the country and say "Hey mom and dad, I've been such a little brat that they aren't willing to put up with me anymore and they're sending me home.  You'll need to be at the airport at ass-thirty tomorrow morning to pick me up.  Oh, and expect a bill for a couple hundred dollars in the next week or so.  That's also because of me."

Have you flown at all in the last 15 years?  I'd bet that no more than 20% of the passengers turn off their phones (and I think I'm being overly generous with that number).  If something were going to happen, it would have happened.

Cell phones don't interfere with plane instrumentation.  I'll go ahead and say that again: "Your federally-mandated-to-not-interfere-with-electronics cell phone does not interfere with a plane's instrumentation."

I posted about the same thing, had someone reply by linking  this comment from a passenger
TLDR:  Kids brought too much crap for overhead baggage area, flight delayed while some had to be checked, during this time kids were non-compliant, antsy, and disruptive.  Captain tells all passengers to calmly deboard, after which the airline told chaperons that a few of the students would not be allowed back on the flight.  Chaperons tell airline they can't just leave kids behind, so kicking a few off would be kicking them all off, airline told them okay then.

It's not the attendants job to threaten you. I'm thinking maybe the first 8 times they asked you to turn it off, and when the captain came back and asked you all, was enough.

jst3p: 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.


It's not a certainty, just a precaution. You can use your cellphone while pumping gas for years and nothing bad will happen, then one day you die in a fire.

I was thinking "maybe the stewardess overreacted"

then they played the race card, and I'm thinking "these people are just making shiat up"

Kicking them off the plane was a solution, but I'm not sure it should have been the final solution.

Electric_Banana: On the way back from Hawaii a couple weeks ago, we ran into a senior class trip going to London.  They were all normal white folk, though, so they were alllowed to be as noisy and obnoxious as they wanted to,.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Only once in all my flights have I ever seen the pilot leave the cockpit to tell an asspipe "turn the phone off or you're gone" so I can only imagine the shrieking tube of misery this plane must have been to inspire such a forced exodus.


Shrieking tubes of misery would be a great band name.

As someone who flies Southwest and AirTran all the time I can only hope that these little self entitled punks fly another airline from now on.

rumpelstiltskin: "We were more behaved than kids should be," he said.

The experiment has failed.
We must bring corporal punishment back to schools.


I'm sorry, Corporal Punishment is busy -- we're going to have to bring in

Flying out of BWI (well, trying to fly out of BWI) Thursday before last there was a group of asshole kids in our gate making so much noise and acting so rowdy that we could barely hear the airline rep who was trying to rebook our flight (would have missed our connection due to severe weather and didn't want to spend the night in O'Hare). Turns out they were with a large group traveling to Houston and the rest of them, including the chaperones, were all 3 gates away waiting to board. They weren't just rowdy little assholes, they were basically playing tag in front of the counter and screeching like drunken parrots. It took every ounce of patience I had not to strangle them one at a time. I can't imagine actually being on the plane with them.

J. Frank Parnell: *reading article, thinking how cool it is they aren't playing the anti-semetic card*

FTA: Student Jonathan Zehavi said he felt they were targeted because they are an identifiably Jewish group.

Dammit.


technically the anti-religion card. TFA added the Jewish aspect as an identifier it seems but yeah, that was the point where I lost all sympathy

I doubt if they will sue, it's not like 109 Jewish people are related to any lawyers or anything.

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.

Despite the length, that article sure does seem like it's only half-finished... as if there's... there's information missing or something.

Beat me to it.  There should never be 108 of ANYTHING on a plane.


I think that's their new slogan.

According to Wielgus, some students may have had to be told twice to sit down or turn off their phones, but everyone listened.

"We were more behaved than kids should be," he said.
