Airport Brawl Breaks Out Due To Spirit Flight Cancellation

1


A passenger brawl reportedly broke out at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Monday as angry travelers faced massive delays and flight cancellations from Spirit Airlines.

The low-cast air carrier has cancelled 300 flights over the past seven days, which Spirit blames on its pilots, who they are now suing in federal court.

But things came to a head on Monday after frustrated passengers who had been left stranded clashed with airline employees and local police, according to CNN.

Tensions between travelers and airlines have been heightened since a passenger was violently dragged off a United Flight last month to make room for airline employees.

Spirit’s front ticket counter “turned into chaos” on Monday, according to the report, when angry passengers exited a plane after their flight had been cancelled and swarmed the counter, where there was already a long line. Read more at The Hill.

  1. Only stupid idiot misers fly with Spirit. If someone is so dumb that they fly Spirit, they get what they deserve. Good for them.
