A video captured by a passenger on a Spirit Airlines flight shows several passengers fighting.

The fight involved about five women after one started to blare loud music from a “boom box.” Several passengers asked them to turn it down, but they turned it up instead.

The flight was heading from Baltimore to Los Angeles on Wednesday.

A plane is probably the last place you’d want to do something like that.

Spirit Airlines spokesman Paul Berry said that one asked: “What are you going to do?”

“Then to provoke the other customer they were holding up their boom box in the air, waving it around,” Berry told the Los Angeles Times.

A brawl then ensued between five women on the plane. One flails at a woman’s face and the other pulls a passenger’s hair.

Police arrived when the plane landed at LAX and pulled the five women involved in the fight off the plane, the newspaper reported.

None of the passengers were charged, police said.

“I’d be really afraid,” said traveler Shamaila Taj, CBS LA reported. “A plane is probably the last place you’d want to do something like that … I would freak out more so than anything else. I would be scared out of my mind because you’re stuck on a plane. There’s nowhere else you can go.”

The FBI also investigated the incident, KTLA reported.
