Airline Kicks 100 Jewish Students Off Plane For Not Putting Away Phones


This photo shows an AirTran Airways jetA group of around 100 high school students traveling from New York to Atlanta were ejected from an AirTran flight after the pilot and crew lost patience with kids who wouldn’t sit down and put away their phones.

Student Jonathan Zehavi believes they were targeted because they are Jewish. “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 told CNN. “I think if it was a group of non-religious kids, the air stewardess wouldn’t have dared to kick them off.”

Maybe after hearing an Iceberg took down the Titanic, The plane staff was not taking a chance with a Goldberg, Greenberg, or Rosenberg.

A plane full of New York jews is heading south to Miami.

After a while, a woman stands up at the front of the plane and shouts, "A doctor, I need a doctor! Is there a doctor on the plane?"

There is a pause, some discussion among passengers, then a young man stands up and replies, "Excuse me madam, but I'm a doctor."

"Good!" says the woman, "Come here and meet my daughter, what a nice wife she would make!"

Turn off your electronic devices or the plane will plummet into the earth killing everyone  onboard, everybody knows that. 

I once crashed a 747 leaving LaGuardia because I was playing Angry Birds but luckily I used my cushion as a flotation device and jumped down the big yellow slide so I was totally fine.

Q: Why do Jewish men have to be circumcised? A: Because Jewish women won't touch anything unless it's 10% off

I think he is using the Jewish card to get a free flight out of them next time.

It's not targetting jewish people it's more likely you were told at least 3 times to turn off electronic devices and you entitled pricks ignored them. That's just what you get. No one gets kicked off a plane unless you're a true douchebag.

They were all texting their parents in unison to complain about the lack of complimentary peanuts and the scratchy free blanket.

"Student Jonathan Zehavi believes they were targeted because they are Jewish."

They're doing a fine job teaching these kids to be perennial victims.

Or is Alec Baldwin also a victim of airline anti-semitism?


Turn off the phones you stupid self-entitled teeanged twats and quit inconveniencing the passengers that actually have to be somewhere.
