Japan; ANA Airlines flight delayed after pilot far exceeds blood-alcohol limit after a big night!

 An All Nippon Airways flight captain was found to have exceeded the company’s blood-alcohol limit prior to a flight on Saturday, the airline said Monday. 

The flight in question, Flight 175, was scheduled to leave Kansai International Airport for Hong Kong at 10:15 a.m., but was delayed for 74 minutes because of the incident, NTV reported.

The 62-year-old pilot showed a blood alcohol content of .19 ml per liter of blood, exceeding the limit set forward by ANA policy. The captain was found to have consumed about 2 bottles of sake and 1 large bottle of beer the night before the scheduled departure, NTV reported.

ANA, which is still reeling from a similar incident that occurred last month, has pledged even stronger measures to prevent another repeat.

  1. I would not be very happy if I found out that the one that will be piloting my flight is kinda drunk. Though there are still no air accidents relating to alcohol use, this practice is still unacceptable.
