Monday at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport. “When #spiritairlines leaves you stranded in Puerto Rico with no employees in sight and holds your luggage and your money hostage. We have been stuck overnight with no clothes or essentials for our 3 or 1 year old children and we are still unanswered and looking for thefts, ”Arias wrote on Twitter. “We are experiencing operational challenges in some areas of our network,” Spirit said in a tweet on Aug. 2. Spirit has canceled flights to several locations, including Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Las Vegas, according to reports. The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA issued a statement denying that the Spirit Airlines cancellations were due to an employee strike. AFA said: “Spirit Airlines is experiencing operational issues resulting in flight delays and cancellations due to weather, expected month change and IT outages. A few media outlets have wrongly reported that this may have been due to a strike. This is not true. There is no flight attendant strike. Crews are not the problem. Management is proactively canceling flights today to restore the operation and avoid further disruption to passengers. »Credit: Tito Arias via Storyful
