Drunk Pilot Booted From Flight Moments Before Takeoff

A SriLankan Airlines pilot was removed from a flight from Frankfurt, Germany to Colombo, Sri Lanka just minutes before takeoff due to failing a breathalyzer test. The flight, which contained 274 passengers, was delayed by 15 hours Friday after the crew noticed the pilot acting “visibly” drunk, and SriLankan Airlines was forced to find a replacement pilot for the flight to Colombo. An investigation of the incident is underway, and the carrier claims that it will comply fully with authorities.

What worries me is how often this happens and the drunk pilots actually fly.
