"Are you sure you're not a pilot"? None better, and even Dean Martin couldn't stop laughing. Had an encounter or two during my corporate/charter flyin days that were not so funny. ADXbear has the right idea that will never fly, but the airlines have the power to fix this but won't. FAR's, Sec. 121.575 — Alcoholic beverages. (c) No certificate holder may allow any person to board any of its aircraft if that person appears to be intoxicated. Seems clear to me.

I hope they fixed the leak prior to landing.

LOL... I love the terminology... Not quite accurate, but descriptive... I think Joseph meant to say
"Dumping Fuel" not "Leaking Fuel" - LOL...

When will airlines link the common denominator with many in flight problms... stop selling booze in the airports of aircraft.. have a V8..
The cost to airlines has to outstrip any profits for alcohol sales.

;there are substantial costs that united incurred because of this sloppy drunk, plus the bartenders at heathrow may have given her far too much to drink. The drinker in question ought to be on the hook for some larger dollars here.

I notice the squawk says a 43 year old women. Shouldn't it be woman? Seems like someone else was drunk as well.
