UK: 55-year-old Olga Bezmelnitsyna and 41-year-old Sergei Gorlov have both been fined £500 for outraging public decency after a series of incidents on a 12-hour flight from Brazil to London.
The cabin crew received complaints from passengers about the pair and staff found Bezmelnitsyna face down in her companion's lap. Despite being warned she was caught later in the flight with her hand on his groin with his trousers unzipped.
All the incidents were in full view of other passengers including children. The pair both pleaded guilty and are reportedly extremely remorseful. A lawyer for Bezmelnitsyna blamed the incident on alcohol.
