I probably could stop just writing “Spirit Airlines in Atlanta.” But what’s unique here is that there are some passengers who actually get denied boarding by Spirit!
A Spirit Airlines gate agent was assaulted by a passenger they’d just denied boarding to out of a belief that the customer was intoxicated. The story is just coming out, though it occurred May 11 around 9:40 p.m. The passenger tried to force her way onto the jet bridge, and punched the gate agent in the face when that didn’t work.
Fortunately the agent was fairly unscathed. The passenger was arrested and charged with assault.
A Spirit Airlines Atlanta fight went viral only a month ago. It always surprises me how long it takes for law enforcement to respond considering the number of different government agencies on site at the airport, and that there are cameras virtually everywhere.
