Air NZ Crew too drunk for flight. It's big headlines across the Tasman - read the NZ Herald and others. Should they all be sacked? I say yes, without a doubt.

Without a doubt, you would be surprised if you knew just how regularly this happens without being detected. Maybe not drunk but not 0

I hope you meant just the cabin crew..? Either way, you'd think so. Couldn't be too many industries around with a tolerance for being drunk on the job. Especially so in one where employees are granted some degree of responsibility for public safety, etc, etc.

Its a misleading title, crew weren't breathalysed and caught drunk prior to flight, all crew were getting on the piss while maintenance was hapenning to fix a fault, the point is that if the fix was successful then the crew obviously would not be ready to fly.

I read original article and IMHO all issue is exaggerated. As I understood they was not “drunk” by any means, but just break 12-hour "bottle to throttle" no-drinking rule. Not saying that anything good about it – they indeed should be more responsible. From other hand kudos to Air NZ not to sweep matter under the carpet .
