This was just on the news. A DL flight attendant was stopped by TSA in Buffalo and was not allowed to board plane to work the flight. The reason given was " unfit to fly" Wow, all these pilots and f/a's are losing it. Does anyone have details?

Could be anything, so I find it odd that you've already diagnosed them with 'losing it'.

Do you have a link?

This link (which doesn't say much) just says that the make flight attendant was unruly.

Delta Flight #1266 was delayed at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport because of an investigation into this incident. According to the Transportation Security Administration, a TSA Officer says the Delta employee was displaying 'unusual behavior' and notified Delta

These checkpoint incidents always make me wonder...is it (in this case) that the flight attendant was being unruly by himself or that he talked back condescendingly to TSA and they took offense?

I hope it is not the latter...that would just be childish and retaliatory in nature.

Without the facts, it's just something to ponder

WGRZ news in Buffalo has reported that TSA reported the FA after smelling alcohol on their breath. A new FA was flown to BUF and worked the flight to ATL. I am guessing the FA deadheaded from LGA as it would be the only flight arriving to BUF before the delayed departure time.

Interesting. We probably will never know what happened. I mean this does not sound much like media fodder to me. Not like a pilot going berserk in flight. I may be wrong but I'll bet we have heard all we are going to about this "story". I would like to know more though.

Quoting Airstud (Reply 7):

Under most circumstances I consider it a good restriction. However, there are on occasion some flight attendants who I believe should be encouraged to fly in the buff. Could result in significant load factor increases on some flights. That being said, if some of these ladies fly into BUF, I hope I get those gate calls.

I was in BUF last night getting ready to go to JFK and the news was everywhere (I am sure channel 4 went with DEATH FLIGHT IN BUFFALO again.... gonzo journalism at its finest). According to the TSA agents outside smoking, and of course, chatting, the F/A in question was beyond hammered and teetering while at the checkpoint.

I guess he enjoyed the fact that bars are open in Erie county until 4am.
