That said, when you are traveling on the company dime, whether an ANA employee or not, I don't think it's unfair to be held to higher standards.
We have clear language for being good corporate citizens when travelling for the company, and giving directions for strong moderation in alcohol consumption. I would suspect ANA already had that as well.

I think the guy was a daft idiot for causing this incident, and that he deserves anything that ANA can possibly throw his way. But IMHO, that should really be it. And a fitting public apology.
