Pilot 4 Times Over FAA Alcohol Limit Removed From Cockpit

A JetBlue pilot is in hot water after being removed from the cockpit of a Fort Lauderdale-bound flight earlier this week. This was because his blood-alcohol level was more than four times above the legal limit set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). His removal resulted in a lengthy delay to the flight.

He’s probably losing his license

Look certainly like that way

What a complete blockhead

tbh I feel bad for him. While, yes, he made a horrible decision and deserves the punishment he is given (which, as stated above, will likely be a removal of his license), he just lost his whole livelihood, passion, and a position he spent tens of thousands of dollars and flight hours achieving. So sad to see this happen.
