A USA man who was accused of taunting a Pakistani couple while they were boarding a flight has found himself booted from the plane - to the cheers of fellow passengers.

Speaking to the Washington Post, United Airlines spokesperson Jonathan Guerin said the removed passengers were placed on a later flight to Houston.

The incident aboard Flight 1113 from Chicago to Houston began after a Pakistani couple in traditional dress boarded the plane.

A passenger on the flight recorded the man who reportedly asked if a couple had a bomb in their bag.

"At that point he said all illegals and all foreigners and need to leave the country".

The man and his co-passenger were asked to gather their belongings and leave the plane by the United employees. As the incident unfolds, the unnamed man abusing and a young woman who accompanied him were already seated in the row ahead of the victims in a flight headed to Houston.

In the video, a flight attendant can be seen asking the man to leave the flight, which he agreed to do.

Debris ripped through the cabin and Flight Attendants prepared for an emergency evacuation.

The plane is believed to have taken off once the two passengers had been removed. "Hey, I'll come back you'll be gone!" A woman, seemingly his companion, left the flight with the man after making obscene gestures at nearby passengers.

"This is not Trump's America", one passenger said, while another added "bye racists".

KHOU reported that several passengers told the airline staff that the man's comments were making them uncomfortable.

In cellphone footage captured before the man and his companion were escorted from the flight, the man can be heard saying that all "illegals" need to "get out".

"Most customers appreciate a place where they feel safe and where they're not going to be attacked and we want to provide that", he said.
