Just like air travel in the 50's. Ah, nostalgia.

The incident happened just before midnight, as passengers were getting off a Frontier flight from Orlando, Fla.

I flew Frontier from CA to WA and was ready to fight someone after I got off that uncomfortable, shiatty plane. A Frontier flight from FL to MN that landed around midnight (meaning it felt like 1:00 or 2:00 to people from FL)? Surprised no one died.

The red zone is for loading and unloading only. There's no fighting in the white zone.

How in da fuq did no one get immediately arrested for that.

Wow, Reddit mods certainly cleared up that thread since it was Boobiesed. The comments sounded like a Fark Central Time Lunch thread.

That fight was impressive, but not as impressive if they were fighting, while dragging Tyson and Ali up and down that airport for an hour.

Glad to see the TSA continuing to keep the traveling public safe.

Not threatening actual airport security?

If any of them had a water bottle or bag of beef jerky, they would've really been in for it!

As a Minnesotan I support attributing dumb things that happen in our state to Florida.

Like when they took down our bridge
 
2021-11-30 8:17:30 PM  
That fight was simmering the whole flight.

too bad none of them knew how to throw punches

Don't Troll Me Bro!: Frontier Airlines. Florida people. It's definitely not news.


Like someone in the Reddit thread mentioned, not many Florida people travel to MN in November.  They were probably on vacation in Florida and returning home to Minn.
 
2021-11-30 8:40:34 PM  
Florida and Frontier Airlines. This is not surprising at all. Only Spirit Airlines could be worse.
 
2021-11-30 8:45:59 PM  
I believe the legal term for black on black violence in MN is "Mutual Combat". Or is it IL? Hmm either way cops weren't able to get their licks in so no charges needed.
 
2021-11-30 8:48:24 PM  
Someone needs to tell these people about the benefits of trepanation
 
2021-11-30 8:51:03 PM  
Surprised no one got knocked out cold.

I've been there several times for a connection and I mostly remember walking and walking.  Bad layout.

On the plus side, the old Northwestern lounge had a beer tap with unlimited pours.  I enjoyed my connections.

That white dude just standing there all nonchalant.
 
2021-11-30 8:58:12 PM  
Oh, but I'm in an unloading zone...
 
2021-11-30 9:37:08 PM  
That was epic. Must have been awkward standing around in the baggage claim waiting for your bags to pop out on the carousel.
 
2021-11-30 9:46:39 PM  
Now now, no need for that.  Just be patient.  There's more than enough lutefisk for everyone!

Jerry Curlan's Horsey: Someone needs to tell these people about the benefits of trepanation


I strongly considered doing that to myself after the fourth or fifth migraine that had me in the ER.  The doctor eventually gave me fentanyl because he was tired of seeing me.  I figured a hole in the head would be preferable to filling that script.

You ever been in a airport baggage claim after 11pm?

It's a ghost town. Any airport workers you might see are scurrying away like cockroaches, doing their best to avoid any human contact.

/my experience come from pre - pandemic.
//I can't imagine it got better.

My drunk uncle fell headfirst down a set of stairs. The swelling on his brain was killing him. His family decided to let him die without any intervention at all. Trepanation may have saved him

I was in Midway Airport in the early 90's, at around that time and somebody on the PA was doing the, "Paging Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard" routine. Nobody looked up or laughed, except me.

I need that like I need another hole in my head.

That's why they call it Frontier airlines. The passengers are like something out of an old western so of course a barroom brawls breaks out.

I remember when that's pretty close to what it was actually like walking through airports.  Sure 911 made flying a lot harder and more annoying but at least it got rid of the solicitors.

Now arriving at Miami International Airport. Passengers are reminded, you are not in a Dave Barry novel. Have a nice day.

You haven't lived until you've been in a terminal at 3am after the airline's system has crashed and flights are all at a standstill. That's the epitome of "avoid the passengers at all costs"

Jesus.  That's pretty awful.  Were they sick of his sh*t?
