Pi­lot over limit

The New Zealand Herald - - News -

A Sin­ga­pore Air­lines flight to Welling­ton was can­celled on Satur­day af­ter a pi­lot failed an al­co­hol test. Sin­ga­pore Air­lines spokesman Karl Schu­bert said flight SQ247 from Melbourne to Welling­ton was can­celled due to an op­er­at­ing crew mem­ber be­ing deemed un­fit to fly. “The Civil Avi­a­tion Safety Au­thor­ity of­fi­cials un­der­took a ran­dom drug and al­co­hol test of all crew. The pi­lot in ques­tion did not pass the test due to hav­ing a higher than suit­able blood al­co­hol limit,” he said.
