The UK authorities are preparing to review the rules on the sale of alcohol in the air harbors in order to bring them into compliance with applicable national laws. If new measures are approved, that in the bars and restaurants of the British airports booze will be available only after 10 am.
According to the Department of civil aviation in the UK, the number of drunken brawlers on flights in recent years has increased dramatically: in 2015, was recorded 195 cases, and in 2017 already 417.
In this case, the drinking alcohol abuse is not only the passengers. On Thursday at Heathrow airport arrested the pilot of Japan airlines. Before flying to Tokyo drunk he noticed the driver of the bus, and the analysis of alcohol in the blood showed a ten-fold excess. During interrogation, a staff member admitted that he drank a half liter of wine and almost two liters of beer.
The trial of the pilot will take place in late November
