Sounds like the crew didn't want to deal with a plane full of kids.... Jewish school against SW (AirTran whatever)... I hope the students can find a lawyer.

Prost, normally your posts are lucid and sane- this is not one of them. As a long time flight attendant, groups are the most disrespectful, most non-complying travelers out there. I cringe when a group gets on my plane; whether its a sports team, convention, cheerleading team, field trip. Doesn't matter, they are all equally misbehaved. The only group that I will take any day of the week, are soldiers. Always polite, always respectful, and always compliant.

I'm sorry, I have no sympathy for these spoiled little private school kids that didn't get their way. I'm tired of people using the religion/race card every time they get called out because of their shitty behavior. No doubt, they'll file lawsuits, but hopefully all of the other passenger's testimonies and the FAA will, in fact, prove they(students) violated federal regulations and AirTran or Southwest will sue them for money lost due to the delay.

Just because you are privileged, it doesn't give you a right to be an asshole.

We are on the same side. tour groups suck because of the herd mentality... I know the crew didn't want them on there.. Zero tolerance if you get a chance... The lawyer thing was a joke.. My fault for forgetting to write "sarcasm" after it like I used to People sue over every little thing now a days. The kids were Jewish. Out of 100 I'm sure half either have fathers or uncles that are lawyers.. get it haha..

Not profiling, BUT, it's another group of the usual over-indulgent dysfunctional New Yawkers with an exagerated sense of self-importance who got kicked to the curb by a flight crew -- and rightfully so. If rules don't apply to them, then planes shouldn't fly for them, either.
