I guess I would try to figure out if he were senior or junior to me in the seniority list....

Would a guy like this be entitled to go out on a paid medical leave or is he chit canned?

Just to be clear, this is not a "new" story. Just a followup to an incident last year.

If I smell booze on your breath you're either calling in sick or I'm calling in sick for you. It's not enough to remove myself from the situation, you prolly need to be protected from yourself.

What about calling in sick for yourself, then immediately getting Pro Standards involved?

Let's say the person denies any wrong doing, what is the angle that you take when the company follows up with you for a last minute cancellation? Get the union to represent you, and speak truthfully of your actions?

Not only that, but these days as the other (i.e. sober) crewmember you could face FAA/criminal/company discipline for NOT doing something about it. :eek:

Once again, a Delta pilot not taking his profession seriously. Does anyone know, where the Delta pilots who landed on the taxiway in Atlanta drunk as well? What about the Delta guys who over flew MSP. I wouldn't be surprised if they were drunk as well.

Reading thru the articles reader comments gave me a chuckle and shows the level of naiveté of the flying public. If they had any idea of how many airline pilots are in the HIMS program in this country you couldn't pay a pax to board an airplane.

It's not the ones in HIMS they should be worried about. It's the ones that should be in HIMS and aren't.

8-12% of any population group suffers from alcoholism or addiction. Take any seniority list and figure 10% and you'll be close to knowing how many people at that company have a problem. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of that are in HIMS.

When questioned at the check point he should of stated " Of course I'm drunk, I came to the airport to let them know I'm unable to fly today"

Their first clue was when they noticed he missed a gold button on his 6 button double-breasted coat. Also his hat, though impeccably polished, was cocked slightly aft of center.

Suprisingly, the authorities noted, the poshness of the uniform did not protect him from poor judgment (or flying skills, for that matter).
