Spirit Airlines A319 on approach

Spirit Airlines pilot dispute causes cancellations and airport violence 

Flight cancellations that sparked a brawl in Spirit Airlines’ Florida terminal have their roots in a dispute between the budget airline and its pilot union. Nine flights out of Fort Lauderdale International Airport were cancelled when pilots failed to show up to fly the planes on May 9. Some pilots called in sick, while others declined to pick up extra shifts. The cancellations led to a number of scuffles between airline employees and passengers.
