CBS 4 Miami’s Tiani Jones Reports this morning from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.


There was quite the commotion at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) Monday after hundreds of passengers were stranded, reports CBS Miami.

It turns out a legal showdown between Spirit Airlines and the pilots association is playing out not just in the courtroom but at FLL.

A total of nine flights were canceled.

Twitter user Jose Rodriguez has posted a video that allegedly shows the scene at the Spirit Airlines counter after the flights were canceled.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office was on hand to keep the peace as one deputy explained what travelers could do to make the process easier.

CBS West Palm Beach affiliate WPEC-TV cites a Broward County Sheriff’s deputy as saying three people were arrested and another one was detained.

Spirit Airlines issued a statement saying they filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Airline Pilots Association (ALPA) — members of Master Executive Council — for “unlawful job action by Spirit pilots.”
