Spirit Airlines reports major delays

Spirit Airlines says it's conducting a proactive and voluntary check on its aircraft engines.

The checks started Wednesday night and led to major backups at airports.

Spirit Airlines anticipates the checks on each plane will be done by noon Thursday.

Police dealt with passengers who were said to be unruly at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport.

Last week, a Spirit Airlines flight from Dallas to Atlanta suffered an engine failure.
