Two women were thrown off a Thomas Cook flight from Turkey to Gatwick over the weekend after they allegedly claimed three Muslim men in thawb or thobe (also called the dishdasha in Oman or the kandourah in the United Arab Emirates) were "terrorists" and a "threat" to the safety of the plane, other passengers have claimed.
