Sri Lanka’s na­tional car­rier has sus­pended a captain who failed a breathal­yser test just be­fore he was due to fly 274 pas­sen­gers and crew from Frank­furt to Colombo. “Upon re­ceiv­ing the re­sults (of the test) Sri Lankan Air­lines took im­me­di­ate steps to sus­pend the ser­vices of the said captain and took al­ter­na­tive mea­sures to op­er­ate the flight to Colombo,” the air­line said. An air­line source said flight UL554 was held up at Frank­furt air­port for more than 15 hours on Au­gust 19 as staff scram­bled to find an­other captain for the Air­bus A330.
