Traveling is officially a nightmare.

On Monday, a straight up brawl erupted at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport when Spirit Airlines canceled a reported 11 flights after a legal dispute with the Pilots’ Association.

More than 300 flights have been canceled over the past week, and in video captured by onlookers last night, Florida travelers clearly had enough as they are seen clashing with airline employees and the police. At least three people were arrested as a result.

In a statement to TMZ, the airline said:

“We are shocked and saddened to see the videos of what took place at Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. This is a result of unlawful labor activity by some Spirit pilots designed to disrupt Spirit operations for our customers, by canceling multiple flights across our network.”

CNN reports the company plans to sue the pilots in federal court. Woof.
