He would have a whale of a time getting to .04 with Vick's NyQuil or any similar product. I strongly suspect that NyQuil is not the culprit here.
Since they arrested him, I am thinking that he blew .04, or over, since that is the level at which pilots may be sent to jail. Otherwise, he would simply have been removed from the airplane for the British to deal with once he got back there.
