Emirates Flight Attendant Caught Pouring Champagne Back into Bottle

Flight Attendant Pouring Champagne Back in Bottle

A video has sparked outrage after it appears to show an Emirates flight attendant pouring champagne back into a bottle. The video was captured by Russian passenger Yevgeny Kayumov, who filmed it while travelling in business class on an Emirates A380 to Dubai.

The video has been shared tens of thousands of times, and has understandably caused something of a furore. Yevgeny shared the video on Instagram and tagged Emirates, saying ‘I accidentally filmed this video, and didn’t even notice this moment at the time, pouring unfinished Champagne back into the bottle.’

He asked the airline: ‘Is that normal practice Emirates?’

Emirates have responded: ‘Emirates always strives to provide top quality service. Actions recorded on this video do not comply with our quality standards. We are currently investigating the incident.’

Some commentators have speculated that the flight attendant could have been pouring the bubbly back in the bottle for later disposal, as liquids are not allowed to be disposed of until the plane is in flight. We wonder – if this is the case – why she chose such a difficult vessel to pour the drink into.

Big thanks for the £304.70 transferred to my bank account today. My claim related to a three-leg flight from Norwich UK to Phoenix USA via Schiphol. The CAA suggested I had a good case but could do nothing because the delay occurred within Dutch jurisdiction. I twice did battle with KLM/Delta myself but they would not budge. Another claims firm tried but threw in the towel. So congratulations to Claim4Flights for taking it on and winning – and for getting the money transferred into my bank account within two days of notification. Very impressed!
