An Aeroflot flight had to make an emergency landing in Yerevan, Armenia, at 5:00 am on August 26 due to a drunk Azerbaijani passenger.
The flight was on its way from Dubai to Moscow when a drunk Azerbaijani passenger started speaking loudly, insulting others and bothering the children. According to one of the passengers, “There were lots of children and foreigners. A man at nearly 30-35 years of age started to shout and molested children. The stewardesses failed to cope with him. Then 6 male passengers caught the man and bound him to the seat.”
The plane landed safely. The pilots tried to hand over the man to the Armenian police, but they refused to accept him. The man was finally tamed with sedatives to continue the fight with a 3 hours delay.
The man was eventually detained by the Moscow police.
