Sober BA Capt Sentenced To Prison For Drunk Crew

Sat Jun 25, 2005 10:10 am

The tread when it happened.

From the Norwegian television web-page http://www.nrk.no/nyheter/innenriks/4853426.html

It basically says:
Capt sober, convicted to prison for 6 months, even if he was sober. Purser convicted to 45 days. Trial for FO is not up yet. Court says that capt should have cancelled the flight, due to alcohol-levels in crews blood. FO had 0.102 % and purser 0.134%, (which I must say is quite a lot, the morning after). The rest of the crew, including the capt, had 0.0

Tough, but I guess that it goes with the rank.
