In yet another story to make you feel better about flying commercial, news has come out about Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways pilots skipping hundreds of preflight breathalyzer tests. JAL says that 100 to 200 pilots skipped the test, while ANA says 393 have skipped them this year.

Pilots claim they were in a hurry because a flight changed, while others said they saw other pilots taking the test, and they "forgot" to take their own test.

We were captured during a lay-over or after a trip for a piss test. There was no escaping as you were escorted to the lab room. Supposedly a random test but there were those who got tested more than others which pissed them off..hahaha

Now not to be too politically incorrect but I seem to remember a historical prescident for Japanese pilots drinking Sake before a flight, they didn’t make it back.....


Comforting......

Same thing goes for engineers. I have seen some drunk Russians before. I once saw this guy on a freighter who was lying on the tarmac during refueling, I asked what was he doing on the concrete and was told "oh he is just drunk and is getting some sun and the aircon packs are blowing a warm breeze over him so he can sober up". And I have personally escorted an engineer off the base and told him not to be back till he sobered up because he was waaaay over the limit and had had less than 2 hours sleep. Aviation does seem to attract the lonely and alcoholic types.
