BROOKLYN - One hundred Brooklyn students were kicked off an AirTran flight on Monday because they allegedly would not sit down and put away their phones.

The seniors from the Yeshiva of Flatbush were traveling from LaGuardia Airport to Atlanta. Sources say some of the students believe they were not rowdy at all, and were kicked off because they were Jewish.

The executive director of the school says he has launched his own investigation because he feels the action taken by the flight crew was unjustified.

Southwest Airlines, which owns AirTran, says it did its best to get the students on the next available flights.
