This is the moment an entire plane full of disgruntled passengers cheered as two women were escorted off an easyJet flight by police after they allegedly shouted 'Allahu Akbar' during two hours of 'rowdy' behaviour.

The pair were filmed being taken away by officers after causing 'drama' on a Valentine's Day flight from Prague to London Stansted.

As the officers removed them the passengers can be seen cheering and clapping - but one of them still grins back at them.

The mobile phone footage was captured by Thomas Hayward, 25, who had been on a romantic break to the Czech Republic with his girlfriend Megan Nisbet, 25.

He claims the pair even yelled Allahu Akbar during the flight - a phrase often shouted by terrorists at the moment of their attack.

But despite their alleged anti-social behaviour police decided against arresting them and let them go home after giving them a warning.

Thomas Hayward, 25, captured the moment passengers celebrated as they were taken off and a police officer tells them: 'I'm sure these people have had enough of this'. 

Essex Police were called to the airport after reports of disruptive behaviour on the packed plane and escorted the passengers off the plane at 9.15pm on Valentine's Day.

Mr Hayward, a teacher from Twickenham, south west London, was returning to the UK following a romantic break with his girlfriend recorded the moment passengers cheered on his phone.

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.'

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

He said: 'When we landed, the pilot asked everyone to stay seated.

'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 police spokesperson said: 'Essex Police 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.'
