FORT LAUDERDALE (Hawaii News Now) - A brawl at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport broke out Sunday night after Spirit Airlines cancelled some 81 flights in one day, CNN reports.
Witness video posted to twitter shows a large group of passengers and security officials clashing near the Spirit Airlines ticket counter in the airport.
County sheriffs reported three people were taken in to custody, according to CNN.
Another video shows one passenger who was caught up in the brawl, being taken down by sheriffs.
Anger towards the airlines had been growing after they canceled some 300 flights nationwide in the last week.
A federal lawsuit by the airlines says the cancellations were due to limited pilots. CNN reports the suit blames the pilots' union for orchestrating an unlawful slowdown.
Negotiation talks between the company and the union on the matter will continue.
There were no serious injuries reported in the airport fight.
