Police: 2 women arrested after fight on JetBlue flight
NEW YORK — Two women have been arrested after police say they attacked each other as their flight arrived at New York’s Kennedy Airport from Jamaica.
Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo says it happened at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday.
He says the dispute started after a 61-year-old passenger at a window seat tried to climb over another woman as Jet Blue Flight 960 approached the gate.
The older woman used an eyebrow razor to slash the 52-year-old woman and a man who tried to intervene.
The Port Authority spokesman says the younger woman then used pepper spray on the knife-wielding passenger.
Seven passengers were treated for difficulty breathing.
Police say the 61-year-old was arrested on assault and weapons charges. The other woman was arrested for possessing pepper spray.
