Fights break out after flight cancellations

On Monday night videos surfaced on social media showing passengers screaming at each other, pushing and fighting with law-enforcement officers at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport due to the cancellation of several flights

The airline company, Spirit, blamed the Air Line Pilots Association for an “illegal work slowdown” that prompted 300 cancellations and the loss of $8.5 million over the past seven days, according to a lawsuit filed Monday against the labor union.

The carrier had 38 cancellations by Tuesday afternoon, following 65 on Monday, according to the flight tracking service FlightAware.com. The shares fell 3.1 percent to $55.65 at 2:09 p.m. in New York after falling as much as 5.4 percent for the biggest intranet drop in nine months.
