Three women passengers created ruckus at Florida airport and attacked airline staff after their flight to Philadelphia was delayed on Tuesday.      

The women identified as Danaysha Akia Cuthbert Dixon, 22, Kaira Candida Ferguson, 21, and Tymaya Monique Wright, 20, were scheduled to fly to Philadelphia on a Spirit Airline flight from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

The women got into an altercation with the airline staff and were filmed throwing phones, shoes, full water bottles and even fast food at the airline staff.

The three arrested women face battery charges and were taken to Broward County Jail, reported Daily Mail.

'The victims were also punched and kicked in different sections of their bodies numerous times,' the arrest report stated. While an airport spokesperson said, "The behavior of the individuals as seen in the video during Tuesday's incident is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our facility."

In May 2017, fights broke out when 81 flights of the low-budget Spirit Airline were delayed in one day.
