Back on September 13th, Australian Captain John Cronly-Dillion popped a few pieces of gum before going through security. Actually, he ate a whole pack, gulped water like a thirsty camel and stumbled quite a bit.
Officials thought this a bit strange as he was on his way to pilot an Emeriates Airlines jet from London to Dubai. On further checking, he was found to be already flying high with a blood alcohol content 7 times over the legal limit.
Captain Cronly-Dillion was sentenced to 4 months in jail this week and, just a guess here, will probably be looking for a new line of work once he is released.
