Two QR crew members who were on duty arrested at HEL

QR 304 HEL-DOH today 16 April is delayed by some 12 hours. Helsinki Airport police have made a statement this morning that they have arrested two QR flight crew members, one of whom was the co-pilot. The two crew members are suspected of having been under the influence of alcohol as they were about to fly on duty. Police will continue to investigate the case and will not give further details for now.

From the other source:

Police said Tuesday that they are looking into the case of a Qatar Airways purser and flight attendant suspected of flying while inebriated.
