Groves and his fiancée Jasmine Mapp sat on the right side of the airplane where they were finally able to see the amazing aurora due to the "kind" pilot, after not being able to see them during their trip.
"We were hoping to see them while we were out there but we didn't get the chance," Groves told the publication.
\u201cBig thanks to the @easyJet pilot of EZY1806 from Reykjavik to Manchester who did a 360 fly by mid flight to make sure all passengers could see the incredible Northern Lights \ud83e\udd29\u201d
"We took off and halfway into the flight the pilot turned all the lights off and the view could be seen out the left window.
"But we were sitting on the right-hand side and after a few minutes the pilot switched back and did a 360 loop around for everyone to see."
"After days of jumping in the car at any opportunity to try and find the northern lights without spotting them, finally getting to see them in the sky was the perfect ending to a very special trip." Mapp added.
An EasyJet spokeswoman said: "We are pleased that the captain was able to perform a controlled manoeuvre in order to allow passengers to witness an amazing display from the air of one of nature's greatest sights.
"Our crew will always go above and beyond for our customers and we're delighted to have been able to share this special view with them."
