Frontier airlines told Fox News, “As a Philadelphia-Miami flight disembarked at MIA, a physical altercation broke out between the passengers who were in the back of the plane. The flight crew requested assistance from law enforcement. All the passengers involved were told to stay on the plane, but some ignored the flight crew’s instructions. Ultimately, local law enforcement got involved. ”

Passenger claimed white and black passengers were treated differently
The video shows a prolonged fight between several people as a flight attendant attempts to intervene. “You are all adults… get off that plane!” said a man. “What is that—?” Go! Don’t look back, look ahead, move!
“I have kids here man, what’s wrong with you guys?” he adds.
There were allegations of racism after the robbery.
“You can see the white man above the black passenger and beat him between the seats, the flight attendant got involved, the white man’s wife got involved, her son I believe that his son’s girlfriend, uh, everyone was just involved, “said Kiera Pierre Louis, a Frontier Airlines passenger, who told ABC7 that the white passenger was allowed to leave but the black passenger was not.
However, police told the TV station that the black passenger said he filed a police report, choosing not to press charges, and they said he was not detained.
Louis told WPLG that one passenger was upset because another took too long to collect his luggage and the passenger used a racist slur and hit him. The airline has neither confirmed nor denied whether a racial slurs was used during the altercation.
People laughed at the video on social media
Here are some of the comments on the video on Milli Miami’s Instagram feed:
“That’s what you get when you put a bunch of people on a plane that sells tickets for 50.00 lol.”
“Just another shit day on Frontier Airline.”
“People are fed up with bullshit talkers.”
People wrote on Twitter:
“‘Fights on Frontier’ sounds like a Mel Gibson movie,” noted a man.
A man joked, on the WPLG-TV commentary thread, “When I take a plane, I act like I’m in church. Never argue, never demand loudly. You just have to cooperate with the bailiffs, I mean the flight attendants.
Another wrote: “First class, economy class and the new low cost cage fighting class. “
