BA Captain Held Back Due To Drinking

Sun Jan 26, 2003 7:27 am

I came over this (yes, I know its in Norwegian) earlier this evening, and i shall try to pick out the most interesting/important.

This article deals with the fact that a British Airways captain who was due to fly BA's 8:30 depature from ARN (Stockholm) home to UK, was stopped by security due to suspicion about him beeing intoxiated.
The pasengers had to wait for about 3 hrs, before BA had a new captain ready.

The article ends with telling about how 11 BA pilots were fired after a TV documentary focusing on their on duty drinking.

Yes folks, thats it
