WATCH: Airline Employee Gets Into Fight with Hostile Passenger
On Thursday, an employee of Spirit Airlines was involved in a physical altercation with a passenger at DFW Airport.
There was a problem with seating on the flight, according to the reports, which is what triggered the brawl.
After discovering that there was no seat available for her on the flight, a female passenger can be seen on video screaming at an employee of Spirit Airlines.
The dissatisfied passenger was instructed by the employee of the airline to get in line so that a gate attendant could assist her.
According to Fox 4 KDFW, the passenger cut in line and punched the airline employee in the face after a supervisor grabbed her boarding pass.
It was at this point when the employee of Spirit Airline approached the customer and knocked her to the ground.
The employee has been placed on administrative leave pending the results of an inquiry.
Fox 4 KDFW reported,
Spirit Airlines said it suspended an employee who got into an argument with a traveler that got out of control at DFW Airport.
Airport police were not on the scene while the fight was happening, but they are investigating. They took a report based on the accounts of the two people involved, plus witnesses who recorded video.
The fight apparently started over a problem with seating on a flight.
No one was taken into custody as both parties were released from the scene after being interviewed. So far, no one has been officially charged.
DFW Airport police confirmed the investigation is still ongoing.
This is becoming a regular occurrence at airports. I honestly see videos like this all the time. People have grown entirely too cold and hateful of others in this country. If we’re ever going to get back to living the lives we used to, we’ve got to get away from this entitlement mentality and start treating others the way that we would want to be treated.
