A Boeing 777 passenger plane flying from Moscow to Bangkok is getting ready to perform an emergency landing at Vnukovo Airport due to a technical issue, a Russia airline representative said.

A reserve airplane is being urgently readied for conducting the scheduled flight, the representative noted, adding the passengers would be meanwhile offered all the necessary services at the Vnukovo terminal, while they wait for their flight.

Preliminary data suggests the cockpit window of the aircraft has cracked, prompting the pilot to request the landing. There are over 100 people on board the plane, Sputnik reported citing a source.
