Flying while drunk
Associated Press reported on May 21, 2009:
LONDON – American Airlines says one of its pilots failed a breathalyzer test at London's Heathrow airport.
The Fort Worth, Texas-based airline says the pilot was given the test Wednesday after airport security staff alerted police.
He was supposed to operate a flight with 204 passengers to Chicago. The flight was delayed while a replacement was found and the plane eventually took off.
American declined to release the pilot's name Thursday.
