Spirit Airlines continues to see plenty of fights go down, before and after their flights lately. They include flights from Las Vegas to Atlanta, and at Detroit’s airport as well. The latest is at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, where a mother and daughter ended up fighting each other, prior to a flight, according to Fox 2 Detroit.
The two were waiting to get on a flight to Detroit when things all of a sudden got ugly. It got to a point where a man nearby had to come in and separate them. Travelers nearby were surprised at what happened and now, the FAA has released a statement, as 85% of flight attendants who took a recent survey, which were over 5,000, said they’ve dealt with “unruly passengers” this year.
“The FAA shares the concerns of the Association of Flight Attendants, and we’re deeply troubled any time a cabin crew member faces threats while performing their critical, safety duties. That’s why we adopted a zero-tolerance policy, and why we are taking the strongest possible action within our legal authority. We have launched an extensive education campaign so the public knows about the consequences.”
As for the latest incident in Atlanta between the mother and daughter, police weren’t called to the scene.
