This was the absurd moment a New York passenger found himself being forcibly removed from the aircraft at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow - why? Because a couple on the flight refused his agitated request to shake his hand.
It wasn't long before the incident sparked a heated row between the three parties while the persistent man couldn't swallow his rejection. The row grabbed the attention of security, who had to pull the angry passenger off of the plane before shocked onlookers on-flight.
