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?
Quote: Buffalo, NY (WKBW)- According to Delta Air Lines, a male flight attendant was removed from flying after a TSA officer observed him acting 'unusual' at checkpoint. 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

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): I didn't think anyone was permitted to fly in the buff...
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.
