Yeah, she was pretty tipsy, alright.
A flight attendant for United Express and Air Wisconsin was fired yesterday after being visibly drunk during the United flight from Chicago O’Hare to South Bend, Indiana operated by a CRJ-200. Since it was a CRJ-200, she was the only flight attendant onboard. Signs showing the flight attendant was intoxicated included:
Needing assistance putting on a seatbelt
Unable to respond to questions
What’s even crazier was that this all happened on the ground, and the flight STILL TOOK OFF!!! It is uncertain if the cabin was secured before takeoff. During the flight, she even fell asleep! When she was taken off the plane in South Bend, she was given a breathalyzer test, which she failed miserably with a 0.2% blood alcohol content.
What a shame. What if there was a medical emergency? Who would be able to help the passenger, besides other passengers? In my opinion, she should be given a fine or arrested. According to the video she has been charged with Public Intoxication.
What are your thoughts on this?
