Altercation with flier leads to broken leg of Aeroflot crew member

Published on : Wednesday, May 22, 2019

A man travelling on a recent Aeroflot flight tried to forcibly enter the cockpit and became physically aggressive, breaking an employee’s leg during the ensuing altercation.

 

According to a statement from the airline, the passenger boarded Aeroflot flight SU1307, bound for Moscow “in an intoxicated state”.

 

The traveller “was verbally and physically abusive to Aeroflot staff and other passengers,” per the statement. “One of our employees suffered a broken leg as a result.”

 

Several videos of the incident have surfaced. In one, the flyer can be heard berating a flight attendant, saying “Shall I smash your face?”

 

The passenger is now banned “for the maximum period of time allowed by Russian law.”
Police were called and removed the passenger from the flight, which was delayed less than 30 minutes.

 

The airline intends to pursue legal action.
