A video of a fight between passengers in the middle of a Frontier Airlines flight went viral after a witness captured the images with his cell phone, while landing in the city of Miami.
According to ABC7, the fight occurred on a flight traveling from Philadelphia to Miami.
A passenger made accusations of racism, but the police told a different story. Fox News reported that the incident occurred on Sunday, July 18, 2021, around 9:30 p.m.
Instagram page @milli_miami shared the video and wrote: “Fight on Frontier Airlines flight. #Karen strikes again. … This happened #frontierairlines #miami #miamiairport #millimiami #miamiinternationalairport #fightonflight #ohshit #backup #viral ”.
Frontier Airlines told Fox News: “When a flight from Philadelphia to Miami disembarked at MIA, a physical altercation broke out between the passengers in the back of the plane. The flight crew requested police assistance. All the passengers involved were asked to remain on the aircraft, however some ignored the instructions of the flight crew. In the end, the local police got involved ”.
This is what you should know:
A witness to the fight claimed that black and white passengers were treated differently
The video shows a prolonged fight between several people while a flight attendant tries to intervene. “You are all adults … get off this plane!” says a man. “What the hell is that shit? Go! Don’t look back, look ahead, move! ”.
“I have kids here, man, what the hell is wrong with you guys?” He adds.
There were claims of racism after landing.
“You can see the white man on top of the black passenger and hitting him between the seats, the flight attendant got involved, the white man’s wife too, his son, I think his son’s girlfriend, um… everyone was involved,” He said Kiera Pierre Louis, a passenger on the Frontier Airlines flight, who told ABC7 that the white passenger was allowed to leave but the black passenger was not.
However, the police told the television station that the black passenger responded that he should file a police report, opting not to press charges, and said he was not detained.
Louis told WPLG that one passenger was upset that another took too long to remove their bags, and the passenger used a racial slur and hit him. The airline has neither confirmed nor denied whether a racial slur was used during the altercation.
People made fun of the video on social media
These are some of the comments about the video on Milli Miami’s Instagram thread:
“This is what you get when you put a group of people on a plane that sells tickets for 50.00 (dollars) hahaha.”
“Just another day on horrible Frontier airline.”
“People are getting tired of idiots.”
On Twitter, meanwhile, these were some of the comments:
“‘Fights on Frontier’ sounds like a Mel Gibson movie”, pointed a man.
Another, instead, joked in the WPLG-TV comment thread, saying that “when I fly, I act like I’m in church. Never argue, never demand out loud. Just cooperate with the ushers, I mean the flight attendants. “
Another wrote: “First class, economy class and the new lowest cost cage fighting class.”
