VIDEO: US passenger thrown off flight after demanding to shake another traveller’s hand


An irate passenger was removed from a flight in Moscow after he aggressively demanded to shake the hand of a fellow flyer.


An angry man demanding to shake the hand of a fellow passenger was thrown off a New York-bound Aeroflot flight.


Video shared online shows the large man shouting “I’m going to shake your hand” repeatedly as the plane was preparing to leave Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow.


Disturbed by the man’s behaviour, the couple he is addressing – who appear to be Jewish – nervously step backwards from the man.


A crew member can be seen attempting to control the situation, before the man shouts “I want to shake his hand” and calling another passenger a “stupid son of a bitch”.


A separate video shows the angry passenger being arrested in the terminal.
