Japan Airlines pilots ‘failed 19 breathalyzer tests’

(CNN)Figures show that you’re safer traveling by plane than by car, but presumably your chances of a safe flight are reduced if your pilot is drunk.

In a development that may worry travelers, it has been reported that Japan Airlines pilots have failed breathalyzer tests 19 times since August 2017, when a more sensitive breathalyzer was introduced for in-house checks.
Japanese newspaper Mainichi Shimbun Thursday cited unnamed airline officials in a report that said failed tests resulted in delays to 12 domestic flights.
