If these men were Muslim, the story would have dominated the news cycle for a week at least

"Police were forced to board a flight arriving at Luton airport on Monday, after a group of strictly-Orthodox Jewish men refused to sit next to women for religious reasons and plugged a phone into the plane’s control panel. The group, believed to be a wedding party, were described by one passenger as causing “absolute bedlam”. The party of ten men were accused of antagonising staff by obstructing the main aisle and constantly ringing the service button, whilst one man also attempted to charge his phone in a control panel - which led to the plane’s exit light being switched on."
