Recently, a Russian passenger was travelling on business class in a Dubai-bound Emarites flight when he chose to film the luxuries on the upper deck of an A380.
However many have suggested it is common practice on planes to pour liquid back into bottles for storage, for disposal on landing.
The immediate assumption by many people who viewed the video that Kayumov took while panning across the Emirates cabin was that the flight attendant may have been pouring leftover drinks from glasses that had already been served to Emirates passengers back into the champagne bottle, perhaps to be served on later Emirates flights to additional passengers.
"What the video depicts is not in line with our service standards".
"We're not allowed to pour things out while we're on the ground".

A spokesperson told MailOnline: 'Emirates always strives to provide the top quality service.
Becoming an Emirates flight attendant is no easy feat. Kayumov wasn't even attempting to capture the moment, but accidentally filmed it while he was taking a video on the upper deck of the A380 for his social media followers.
'I could be wrong but realistically that's probably what's going on. being a flight attendant is all about efficiency and consolidating haha'. "I bet they're pouring it all back in the bottle so they can then pour it out at cruising instead of dumping it all in the trash can making it all soggy".
An anonymous cabin crew columnist told The Independent that he thought she was likely conserving it.
Others commended the employee's thoughtful action. "We are now investigating the incident", a spokesperson was quoted. "We can't pour hot liquids out when we are parked at the gate, but I get rid of them by putting it in the toilet and flushing".
However, in a comment thread about the video on Reddit, a flight attendant gave one possible explanation for the action, saying it was probably not about reusing the champagne at all.
