A & # 39; drunk & # 39; Russian man, 36, who himself & # 39; Dima from Moscow & # 39; was arrested on board an Aeroflot flight from Barcelona to Moscow on Friday
On the line between business and economy class, where a crew member is blocking his way, the man says: & Do you really all think we're flying to Warsaw because of me? & # 39;
& # 39; Hey everyone, add me on Facebook, & # 39; he cries.
He told the passengers involved: & # 39; Business class is useless! I had an unpleasant accident … that's why we're landing in Warsaw now. But I promise … I'm Dmitry from Moscow. & # 39;
At a certain moment he saw how he threw a bag on a chair.
In the aftermath of the Friday incident, Aeroflot has demanded that the Kremlin allow its crew to take more vigorous action against violent passengers during flights.
The airline – the national airline of Russia – said: "The passenger did not respond to verbal and written warnings.
The business class passenger flew into anger after what he reported a & # 39; unpleasant incident & # 39; before calling his fellow passengers and crew members.

& # 39; Because his actions were a direct threat to flight safety, the pilot had to request an emergency landing at the Warsaw airport.
& # 39; The man resisted Polish law enforcement officers when they held him.
& # 39; Aeroflot intends to claim the most severe penalty possible for this particular aircraft accident, with the reimbursement of losses caused to the airline. The man will be put on our blacklist.
& # 39; The police are currently conducting a preliminary investigation with the potential to bring a criminal case against the passenger. & # 39;
Aeroflot wants the Russian government to allow additional equipment on board to limit passengers. This includes plastic handcuffs.
A new law goes through the Russian parliament to give the crew all the necessary measures and tools to control aggressive passengers.
Aeroflot said the man posed a direct threat to the flight, disregarded repeated warnings from the crew, and then resisted arrest after landing in Poland

Allegedly he is confronted with a considerable fine and possible imprisonment in Poland.
A father sitting in front of economy class said: & # 39; Our children were near the aisle and were very scared when the masked police seemed to be holding the man. & # 39;
Identified as Vladimir S, from Moscow, the father said: & It is so sad that more and more passengers are getting so heavily drunk. & # 39;
An angry woman on the run said: & He ruined all my plans. I am late for a connecting flight and will not make it in time for a family reunion that I have been looking forward to for months. & # 39;
A Warsaw spokesperson Frederic Chopin Airport Piotr Rudzki confirmed to TASS that the emergency landing had been made by Aeroflot because of an aggressive passenger.
& # 39; He has been removed by border guard personnel and is now staying in Warsaw & # 39 ;, said Rudzski.
