I guess the new crewing requirements are 1 and 1/5 to pilot an airplane.

Ok. He did a stupid thing. He did not seek help before his problem got he best of him. But, Alcoholism is a real thing. As everyone abandons him, I just pray there is someone left who will help him through recovery. He has certainly already reached his low point.

THREE times the legal limit ? How did he get past "security"

So he is going to be allowed to take innocent lives back into his hands yet again?
3X the legal limit?
If that is 0.24 %, that is 1/2 the lethal amount 0f 0.5%.
So what will be the punishment the next time he does it?

3X's legal limit. Is this in accordance with the company's policy or local/civil law? I'm not condoning this by any means; especially when innocent lives are put in jeopardy! Just curious.

Threw his life away along with the empty bottle.

I've seen passengers refused boarding at the gate just for having booze on their breath and this jerk stumbles on a plane and passes out at the wheel !! I just read where TSA workers tested positive for drugs and alcohol.......When I fly anymore it's a crapshoot as to whether I will get to my destination anymore...alive !
