JAL pilot admits being almost 10 times over alcohol limit

A Japan Airlines co-pilot arrested after failing a breath test shortly before a London to Tokyo flight has pleaded guilty to being nearly 10 times over the legal limit for alcohol.

The first officer, identified as 42-year-old Katsutoshi Jitsukawa, was arrested after a breath test indicated he was in breach of United Kingdom aviation laws. British police made the co-pilot take a blood test to confirm the results.

The airline's management said they believed the in-house breath test hadn't been conducted properly.

For comparison, the legal limit for drivers in England and the U.S.is 80 mg per 100 ml of blood, a BAC of 0.08%.

After the bus driver alerted authorities, the co-pilot, Katsutoshi Jitsukawa, 42, was arrested at Heathrow - 50 minutes before his flight to Tokyo.

In a statement, the airline said: "The company sincerely apologises to the passengers and to all affected by the employee's actions".

JAL said the flight was delayed more than one hour and had to be operated by the remaining two pilots.

The airline issued an apology, promising "immediate actions to prevent any future occurrence".

The incident came just a day after All Nippon Airways revealed a hung-over pilot had caused multiple flight delays.
