Honeymoon couple were led off Thomas Cook flight home by police after complaining about the food onboard

Furious newlyweds were escorted off a Thomas Cook aircraft by police after complaining about the food.
Marcus, 38, and Zarrah Hayles, 34, were travelling home from their honeymoon in Cuba when trouble erupted mid-air.
The devastated couple told Nottingham Post they had not been offered any food or drink two hours into the journey.
And when the food did arrive, they said it was the combined main meal and snack, which was due later on in the flight .
Mr Hayles complained about the service and admitted he swore by saying "what the f***", but says the comment was not aimed at the flight attendant.
But a member of the cabin crew told the delivery driver swearing was not tolerated and he could face arrest.
Police entered the aircraft on arrival at Manchester Airport on Thursday August 30 and escorted the couple off the plane.
Mrs Hayles, a Post Office worker, said: "Two officers said 'can you please come with us?' and escorted us off the flight in front of everyone.
"I have never been so humiliated. I have never been in a situation like this before.
"The reason they were called was 'disruptive and abusive behaviour'. I felt victimised. It was the last day of the honeymoon. We were treated like criminals just because of an opinion on how the food was served."
She added cops let the couple, from Sherwood, Nottingham, go once hearing their side of the story and later on that evening they received a phone call saying the matter had been dropped.
Mr Hayles added: "I felt demoralised over being treated the way I was just for having an opinion on the service I paid for. I did not threaten anyone or go over the top.
"It was such a beautiful occasion - the wedding and the honeymoon - and this has left a big dent in our memories."
A Thomas Cook Airlines spokeswoman said: "The safety of our customers and crew is always our first priority and we will not tolerate any form of abusive behaviour on board our aircraft."
