Three women, who went nuts on Spirit Airlines workers at the Fort Lauderdale airport (allegedly) over baggage fees at the gate, have been arrested for getting rowdy Tuesday. Spirit says three workers sustained injuries during the melee. Spirit says it was over a delayed flight.
Delayed flight…extra baggage fees…it’s just another day in the life of flying the friendly skies of Spirit. According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, the women hit the workers with “miscellaneous items, such as phones, shoes, full water bottles, metal boarding signs and fast food.” All three women are from Philadelphia and were heading home.
We spoke to a witness at the scene and he claims the reason the women turned up was because they were going to be charged a baggage fee at the gate. Apparently it was $65 to check your bag at the gate vs. $35 if completed online. The women reportedly weren’t having it so they decided to take things out of their bags. When they were told they needed to step aside and that they will be missing their flight. That’s when all hell broke loose, allegedly.
