Angry Passengers Engage In A Fight At Florida Airport After 11 Flights Were Cancelled (Video)

A fight broke out on Monday at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Florida, after Spirit Airlines cancelled 11 flights. The angry passengers escalated their rage into a physical fight that included cops. Passengers who had waited for so long for their flight refused to be controlled as they shouted and pounded on the counter as the riot unfolded. 

Security officials made efforts to calm the passengers but it was to no avail. The fight continued even after the police got involved. At least 3 people were arrested before calm returned. Asides the cancelled flights, Spirit Airlines also had to delay 26 flights given that they were in the middle of a union dispute with the Airline Pilots Association and its pilots, who refused to fly out of protest.

Speaking on the incident, a spokesman for Spirit said: "We are shocked and saddened to see the videos of what took place at Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. This is a result of unlawful labor activity by some Spirit pilots designed to disrupt Spirit operations for our customers, by canceling multiple flights across our network."
