Fight breaks out aboard a Russian Plane

I bet they downed a few duty free bottles.

Not as spectacular as I had expected. They don't seem drunk either

4 mins I am never getting back.

I could not make out the issue they were fighting about, but the only thing clear was the guy by the window screaming "he hit me".

Yes... why was the other guy not wearing a shirt?

But you see... all the other on the plain got involved to get the issue resolved. I am sure in the states, you would have most people just try and watch.

Admittedly, I'd probably punch someone, too, if I were stuck on a Russian plane.

Russians don't need to be drunk to flight for sure

Actually the guy walked away and took off his t-shirt, couldn't understand why.

And people were really kind not to allow the problem to escalate.

If someone speaks Russian I'd love to understand what (am presuming) the captain was saying.

I was on a Russian flight once from Chelyabinsk to Moscow (this was my flight from hell) and a group of Russians got plastered from the bottles of vodka that they were passing around and got extremely belligerent. It didn't help that the flight was over an hour late in boarding and then sat around another hour or so before take-off. The flight attendants just disappeared at one point and hid for most of the flight. I did my best to make myself invisible. Ahhhh. anotehr fond memory of living in Russia.

Every youtube video I've ever seen involving russian's fighting, at least one of the combatants has taken their shirt off. I think it's the universal code for I'm willing to throw down. Not worth the 4 minutes to watch it though.
