Travellers were forced to disembark from planes as flights were delayed during the dramatic downpour.
Love Islander Zara McDermott and her Made In Chelsea boyfriend Sam Thompson were among hundreds caught up in the chaos.
She posted snaps online showing showers of water raining down over her restaurant table – ruining her meal.
Shocked Zara wrote: “The roof is coming down in Luton Airport wtf. Sat in Bella Italia.
‘THIS IS INSANE’
“I cannot believe this is happening was just trying to enjoy my pizza”.
In the footage she can be heard shouting: “I’m getting wet Sam” – and adding: “Oh my God, this is insane.”
Other snaps showed massive puddles forming on the floor during the 15-minute flash flood.
And in one pic, worried Zara wrote: “The roof is coming down in Luton airport WTF!”
Luton Airport apologised for the delays – caused by what it described as “a period of unprecedented rainfall”.
Passenger Claudia Harris also posted video footage of water coming through the terminal roof.
She is heard saying: “That’s all water coming through – it’s flooding right now.”
Melissa Restrepo wrote: “Stuck in the plane at Luton Airport because apparently the terminal was flooded by a quick rain. Fun.”
And Evan Hood said he had been cleared off a plane which was just about to take off.
He added: “We were sitting on an #easyjet at #lutonairport when that rain hit…and then our plane started smoking.”
