Mother and daughter fight with Spirit Airlines staff over luggage
A 39-year-old mother and her 17-year-old daughter recently got into a fight with several Spirit Airlines employees, and it was all captured on film!
It was DOWN before Spirit Airlines flight to Florida
The ordeal happened at Philadelphia International Airport just over a week ago, according to Daily mail. It is known that the fight broke out because the mother and daughter’s hand luggage was too heavy and then they had to pay an extra fee.
However, the tourists — on their way to Fort Lauderdale, Florida — didn’t take the news very well, and the video opens with them scuffled with staff at the highway entrance.
A boy who appeared to be accompanying the pair quickly left to call for security, although the fighting continued. The boy then turned around and continued to hit a Spirit Airlines employee before running away while crying.
After the brawl came to a halt, tensions ran high as an employee frantically shouted, “She hit me first!”
The situation then continued to heat up again, and the mother even took off her shirt at one point. Meanwhile, a bewildered bystander said what everyone was thinking: “Where the hell is the security?”
Just when the ordeal seemed to be coming to an end, the mother began to rampage again. As a result, an employee quickly attacked the mother—and snatched her wig—before the video ended.

No arrests have been made in the incident
In a statement to the outlet, a spokesperson for the Philadelphia Police Department said that they have not made any arrests over the incident. They also noted that no one was seriously injured and that the only injury was an incision in the eye of a 24-year-old agent.
They also provided more context, noting that the 17-year-old started the argument after she was denied access to the motorway, because she failed to comply with the “extra baggage fee”.
“Several passengers separated a 24-year-old complainant and a 17-year-old woman with her 39-year-old mother during an argument over additional baggage fees. At this point, the 17-year-old girl attempted to enter the Jetway and was stopped by the 24-year-old complainant as she was punched by the 17-year-old girl who was being helped by the 39-year-old woman.
The statement also notes, “All participants were consulted by the police regarding private criminal complaint documentation.”
In the end, the flight was delayed by about an hour, although it seems that everything went smoothly after that.
