A man had to be booted off a plane after he kicked off mid-flight.

Footage has been shared on social media showing a very irate passenger having an argument with cabin crew, allegedly over not receiving his preferred meal.

The United Airlines flight was travelling from Houston, Texas, to Amsterdam when trouble started brewing.

In a clip posted to TikTok by a fellow passenger, @ifyoureashleyanduknowit, the man can be seen standing up as he has a row with one of the stewards.

At one point, he says 'f**k you' to members of staff as other travellers watch on in shock.

He is then heard saying: "I've been a United flyer for a long time. I paid £1,000 bucks for my way.

“I don't want to comply with anything because...whenever the government and the regulations tell me, that's where I need to be.

The man had a row with staff.

“You're a douche. You know it though. You know you're a douche.”

The other passenger, who posted the clip on TikTok, said: “We got to stop in Chicago to let this super nice guy off the plane.

“He continued to laugh and antagonise the United crew after these, and they handled it with such calm!”

A second video shows the man being confronted by police after he was removed from the plane in Chicago.

They went on: "He said, 'I am a regular traveller like everybody else, but I decided because I have injuries that I'm going to take a 9.5 hour flight to Amsterdam, and I'm going to pay the extra $1,000.

“'And all I wanted to do was get a meal.

“'You can take me wherever you want. Am I under arrest? What are you going to do? Who are you anyway?'"

The plane was diverted to Chicago so the passenger could be removed.

As he filmed the officers escorting him away, the unnamed passenger said: “I would love for you to be on Fox News.

“Why do you think that one of your flight attendants is able to decide that I don't get to be treated like everybody else?”

In a statement, a spokesperson for United Airlines confirmed that one of its passengers had been removed from a flight following an incident with staff.

“United flight 20 from George Bush Intercontinental Airport to Amsterdam diverted to O’Hare International Airport and landed safely following a passenger disturbance," the statement read.

“Law enforcement met the aircraft at the gate and escorted the passenger off the plane. The aircraft then continued to Amsterdam.”
