Who knows what started it. Seems to be a good response from the crew though, calming things down and restraining the aggressor.

As I do not understand Russian, could you please let us know what was being said between the two men?

Unfortunately, with the level of background noise and general hub-bub I can't really make out anything they actually said to each other. The only stuff I can adequately hear is when the crew starts imploring them to calm down and stop it, which is probably fairly obvious anyway.

Be fair, there have been plenty of fights and incidents on flights from other countries. The last guy I seem to recall being tied up was in Icelandair.

Too many drinks maybe?

One could also say that maybe if they had been given a little more, they wouldn't be good for anything other than staying put and perhaps dozing off. Or singing.

We all know that stereotypes are wrong, and should be avoided! but in many countries Russians have a reputation for uncontrolled drinking and misbehavior. I even heard in some countries (Cuba) they try to avoid Russian costumers.

PS- Brazilians have a bad reputation too, watch your wallets guys LMFAO.

That's why. I don't have that view of russia- i have many russian friends here in tokyo- but I do see it quite a bit on stuff people post on YouTube...which perpetuates the stereotype.

I don't have any problems with Russians myself and even have Russians friends but i think that there is some concern in the tourist sector about the behavior of some of the Russian tourist.
If you go to travel shops in Holland you can chose hotels in several country's which has a remark that they are 100% Russian free.
If there was no concern (right or not) why would they advertise with Russian free hotels.

There are dozens of similar videos on YouTube, all with the same scenario: drunk Russians on a charter flight to PUJ, AYT, HRG (insert your leisure destination here) swearing and brawling while others just watch and do nothing except for snapping pictures and shooting videos on their mobile phones.
This is the reason why I would never fly a Russian airline (UN, for example) which carries a critically high share of Russian package tourists.

Yes, Saw this myself several times.
This is already available from 2005 and after this it only increased.

( see news article from 2005 , sorry only in Dutch)

http://www.nu.nl/economie/622936/tur...ers-willen-rus-vrije-vakantie.html

Basically it says that more and more people are requesting holidays without Russian people in their hotels.
The article mentions that several travel organisations are offering hotels (in Turkey etc) with a guarantee that only west European holiday makers are guest in those hotels.
It is not something they advertise a lot off-course but it is very popular in the last few years.

that's discrimination and should not be encouraged, is there some hotel association that can stop it.

For sure you can call it discrimination.
But if the customers are asking for it, the travel industry (some of them) will provide it as it is not illegal, simple as that.
And believe me or not it is getting more and more popular.

After the way some Brits behave abroad as well...

Quoting 777way (Reply 18):

It may be discrimination if a Russian tried to book one and was told he/she couldn't because it was a Russian-free holiday location but I'm not sure that this is discrimination in itself.
