Passengers Cheer As Two ‘Rowdy’ Women Are Removed From EasyJet Flight For ‘Shouting Allahu Akbar’

This is the moment a plane full of passengers cheered as two rowdy women were escorted off an easyJet flight by police – for shouting “Allahu Akbar”.

Thomas Hayward, 25, captured the moment officers boarded the flight at London Stansted after it arrived from Prague.

Essex Police confirmed they were called to reports of disruptive behaviour and escorted the pair off the plane at 9.15pm on Valentine’s Day.

Thomas, a teacher from Twickenham, south west London, was returning from a romantic break with his girlfriend when the women

He said: “The flight was only an hour-and-a-half but felt like forever.

“The two girls were sitting next to the emergency exit and were causing all sorts of dramas.

“They were being really loud, having strange conversations at the top of their lungs and refusing to be quiet.

“At one point they even shouted ‘allahu akbar’ – despite being two white British girls.

“Everyone on the flight sat quietly, but you could tell everyone was getting more and more annoyed.”

Thomas was on his way back to London after a romantic holiday with girlfriend Megan Nisbet, 25.

He said: “Megan and I were coming back from a couple of days holiday.

“It was quite late at night and the flight attendant had told them if they didn’t stop being disruptive we might not be allowed to land.”

Thankfully, the plane landed shortly after 9pm and police were waiting to greet the two girls.

“But the first two to stand up were those two girls despite the seat belt sign still being on.

“They kept saying that they thought people would steal cigarettes in their bag.

“But then the police came on the flight and everyone started cheering.

“150 people were happy to see them being taken away, the whole plane was delighted.”


A spokesperson for Essex Police said: “We were contacted at 9.15pm on Tuesday February 14 following reports that two passengers were being disruptive on a flight arriving from Prague.

“Officers attended the incident and spoke to two female passengers. No-one was arrested.”

An easyJet spokesperson said: “EasyJet can confirm that flight EZY3068 from Prague to London Stansted on 14 February was met by the police on arrival as a result of a passenger onboard behaving in a disruptive manner.

“The passenger was escorted away by the Police. The safety and well being of passengers and crew is always easyJet’s priority.

“Whilst such incidents are rare we take them very seriously, do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour onboard.”
