According to a spokesperson for the airport,
We are shocked and saddened by this isolated incident. We take a zero-tolerance approach to violence and continue to assist the police with their enquiries.
We would like to sincerely apologise to any passengers affected.
Five of the 17 arrested were released and one subsequently is out on bail. No explanation for what started the fight was given, so I’d love to hear more from readers as additional details develop.
Fights don’t usually rope in this many people, although I suppose if it were going to occur at a London airport it would be at Luton which brings together multiple Spirit Airlines experiences on the east side of the Pond.
