Russian passenger Evgeny Kayumov accidentally filmed the scene but didn’t notice it at first. When he did, Kayumov immediately posted the video and tagged Emirates, asking: ‘I accidentally filmed this video, and didn’t even notice this moment at the time, pouring unfinished Champagne back into the bottle.’

‘Is that normal practice Emirates?’

His social media followers were aghast.

In a statement to Moskva City News, a spokesman for Emirates Airline said that Mr. Kayumov witnessed was not standard practice of the airline and it will conduct an investigation.

‘Emirates always strives to provide the top quality service,’ the airline spokesman added.
