Transcript for Women Caught in Mid-Air Brawl Suing Spirit Airlines
Now to the in-flight fight all caught on camera. Three women suing spirit airlines saying the airline overserved rowdy passengers which then led to that dispute. ABC's David Kerley has all the details. Good morning, David. Reporter: Good morning, Amy. If an airline is serving alcohol to passengers, is that airline responsible for those passengers' behavior? The lawsuit this morning coming out of that jet brawl says yes. A half dozen women in a jetliner brawl gone viral. The fight as the spirit jet arrived in Los Angeles but this had been brewing for hours in the air. A lawsuit this morning says three intoxicated women blasted music from a bluetooth speaker and refused to turn it down despite the pleas of fellow passengers. Three of the passengers who complained and got into that fight are now suing spirit airlines for negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Attorney Gloria Allred is representing the three women. Spirit airlines failed to take meaningful action to monitor and/or to control these passengers. Reporter: According to court documents obtained by ABC news the women were seated behind three female passengers who, quote, thanks to spirit airline airlines' decision to allow them to consume excessive amounts of alcohol became highly intoxicated and emboldened to behave in a rowdy and rambunctious manner". An airline has a duty to train its personnel to monitor and control passengers who do become intoxicated. Reporter: Overnight spirit airlines telling ABC news "Until we see the actual lawsuit and specific allegations, it would be inappropriate to comment at this time." All those women were escorted off the plane but the FBI says, George, nobody was arrested, nobody was charged in this case. Now the lawsuit. That's a little strange. Okay, David, thanks very much.
