The couple were reportedly performing a sexual act before being told off by a flight attendant and later arrested. The move allegedly took place in economy class, on a flight from Moscow to Vladivostok.
A video shows a flight attendant ordering the couple: “Come on now, calm down and settle down quickly!
“The plane will land and you will get out of here.”
In other footage, a female flight attendant scolds the man, saying: “Let’s not argue, you will follow our recommendations.
“I hope until the end of this flight you will sleep in your seat, the one you were lying in before.”
The passenger replies: “So what?”
The stewardess continues: “And we will fly to Vladivostok.”
Another female flight attendant then says: “You know, the captain has been informed that you performed sex in a public place.
“There is video footage, and we will be forced to report you to the police.
The man questions: “With which one?”
The flight attendant later says “all this has been filmed”.
The pair had met at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, possibly in a bar, before boarding the flight, reported Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.
According to the Russian Interior Ministry, the two passengers face up to 15 days “administrative arrest” and a fine.
