3 women arrested; airline praises workers’ professionalism
When an employee for Spirit Airlines told three women in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., earlier this week that their flight to Philadelphia had been delayed, all hell broke loose in a hurry.
Three employees suffered minor injuries, news station WPLG reported, after being attacked with phones, shoes, full water bottles, metal boarding signs and fast food.
Tymaya Wright, 20; Danaysha Dixon, 22; and Keira Ferguson, 21, were arrested on battery charges in connection with the violent encounter, according to local authorities.
Spirit, in a statement praising employees for their “professionalism and quick actions,” said that “violent behavior is completely unacceptable and has absolutely no place in airports or any other place of business. We will not tolerate abusive behavior of any kind.”
