Canceled flights from Spirit Airlines caused an all out brawl at Fort Lauderdale’s airport  on Monday.

 

Patrons, Spirit employees, and police clashed as thousands of passengers became stranded over the weekend due to over 300 canceled flights.

 

The budget airliner blanes it’s pilots for the cancellations and says they intent to sue them in court.

 

Yet and still, the cancels left passengers infuriated, as they began to express their anger about the canceled flights, long lines, and no answers to their questions about flight reassignment or reimbursement.

 

Some passengers were even aboard aircrafts when announcements were made that flights were being canceled, and that passengers had to leave the aircraft.

 

While footage from the tense environment shows some customers being very visibly loud and irate, things did get ohysical between some passengers, leading to some arrests on site.

 

Check out the footage below. We hope Spirit gets it together.
