The alleged air rage passenger was a high profile oil company executive who heads an offshoot of giant Rosneft in the Chinese capital. The senior manager named as 37 year old Andrey K was removed from the flight in the Siberian city, and after checks at the airport, sent to appear in court. 

The disruptive passenger was reported by Russian media to be the head of OOO RN Lubricants LLC, a daughter company of Rosneft in China. He has been working in this company for about two years and was flying to Moscow for a business meeting.

A narcissist who can't handle alcohol shouldn't be in the position he is in now, there are better suited candidates for RN-Lubricants.
