CHAOS AT FLORIDA AIRPORT: Furious Passengers Brawl With Airport Staff, Police [VIDEO]

Violence and chaos on airlines has become seemingly commonplace, as airline after airline finds themselves dragged into the headlines. First, it was United, then Delta… and now, Spirit Airlines is having their turn in the spotlight, after a brawl broke out among their customers at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Monday night, 11 Spirit Airlines flights had to be cancelled, with 26 more delayed. A group of passengers were furious and they began taking out their rage on Spirit employees. The customers began beating on the counters while they yelled at the staff, so police were called. And when they arrived, one group of passengers attacked the police.

The reason they attacked police? Because they were angry about possibly missing a graduation ceremony. As they were led out of the terminal, passengers around them applauded.

Three people specifically are being accused of causing the crowd to become aggressive. Desmond Waul, 22, Janice Waul, 24 and Davante Garrett, 22, were found to be threatening the Spirit Airlines employees. Once they were ordered to leave, they refused and police say that it was their actions that caused the mob to turn violent.

The flights were cancelled due to negotiations between Spirit Airlines and a union, the Airline Pilots Association. Spirit just announced that they had filed a lawsuit against the union for “unlawful job action by Spirit pilots.”

In a statement, Spirit spokesman Paul Berry laid the blame on the union. “We are shocked and saddened to see the videos of what took place at Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport this evening,” the statement read. “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. These pilots have put their quest for a new contract ahead of getting customers to their destinations and the safety of their fellow Spirit Team Members. It is for this reason, Spirit has filed suit in Federal Court to protect our customers’ future travel.”

In John Hawkins’ new book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in number 20 of the book how to deal with the police.
