- The Spirit Airlines flight was from Baltimore to Los Angeles
- The fight started after the flight landed at LAX
Spirit Flight 141 from Baltimore had just landed at Los Angeles International Airport and was taxiing to the gate when the incident began.
"Two customers, who appeared to be intoxicated, were playing loud music on (a) portable speaker," Spirit Airlines spokesman Paul Berry wrote in an email.
"Several other customers asked them if they could turn down their music," he said. "The first two ladies refused to do so and stated 'What are you going to do?'
"Then to provoke the other customers, they were holding their speaker in the air taunting the customers who had asked to have the music turned down. This prompted the second group of customers to approach the first group and a fight broke out."
Five women were involved in the brawl. Other passengers captured the scene on their smartphones.
Airport police and FBI agents responded when the aircraft reached its gate, but no charges were filed.
