Turkish Airlines is thinking about banning the sale of alcohol on all its Russian flights, according to an Izvestia newspaper report on April 25.

The decision could be taken as many Russian passengers have repeatedly shown inappropriate behavior after consuming alcoholic drinks, company officials told Izvestia.

A total of 28 Russian citizens have been taken into custody by the Turkish police for causing trouble during flights, the report said.
