A flight attendant from the airline Japan Airlines tried to use his tandplejning as an excuse for his high bac, when she had to fly from the japanese capital, Tokyo, to ferieparadiset Honolulu, Hawaii.
This writes the Japan Times.
It was reportedly two of the 46-year-old woman's colleagues, who called out the guard in the gun, as they thought, to stewardessens breath smelled of alcohol when she went on board on the plane at the airport in Narita, where she had passed a breathalyser shortly before.
Colleagues insisted that the stewardess was tested again and her bac turned out to be 0.15, which is 0.05 higher than Japan Airlines' permissible limit of 0.10.
the Stewardess refused then to have consumed alcohol, but insisted that it had to be her use of the mundskyld earlier in the day, which was the cause of the high rate of per thousand.
the Airline confirms the incident and says that they are in progress of investigating the case further.
It is certainly not the first time that Japan Airlines has problems with staff trying to work with too high promiller.
According to the BBC it is nothing less than 19. time since the august 2017, that employees have dumped the airline's alkoholtests, which has meant that 12 flights have been delayed because of alkoholpåvirkede pilots or flight attendants, while the last seven flights managed to fly off to the time when the airline found alternative staffing.
this is Why Japan Airlines is now in full swing to implement stricter rules for alkoholindtaget among their flyansatte, which among other things includes new alkometre as well as higher penalties for employees who try to fly with too high a bac.
- We take this violation very seriously. The safety of our flights is our top priority, and we apologize to everyone who was touched by our employee's action, says the airline in a written opinion.
Japan Airlines drew headlines worldwide earlier this year, when one of their pilots was sentenced to a term of imprisonment of ten months, because he tried to fly from London to Tokyo with a bac of no less than 1,89, which is nine times higher than the allowed limit.
the Pilot by the name of Katsutoshi Jitsukawa was discovered when the airport security checks in Heathrow smelled alcohol out of the pilot's breath, after which they contacted police, who charged him to break the british luftfartslov.

- It is clear that the consequences could potentially have been disastrous, if not security personnel and the police had interfered, and he had continued his work on the plane in the condition he was in. said Iain Goble, director of lufthavnspolitiet in the uk airport, shortly after the Japan Airlines pilot was sentenced to his prison sentence.
- I would like to acknowledge the security team's efforts. They acted quickly and professionally, and contacted police from a presumption that Jitsukawa was not able to fly the plane, he continued.
