Riley, however, had earlier failed as a company, breathalyzer in 2013, in an incident that has been determined to be related to drinking. The Department of Transportation has a policy in place that bars anyone who is not on more than one occasion to work on board of a plane, “for each such employer.”

“I don’t want to be punished, and take the consequences for something I did not do that,” Riley told Fox 46.

Riley’s claims about the keto diet, is not entirely without merit. According to the doctor, who spoke on the Health of Men in 2019, when are the keto diet, and was gaining in popularity, especially breathalyzer devices that can give false positives when used by people who are in ketosis.

In a statement shared with Fox News, Riley’s attorney, Charles Adkins, stated that Riley was invited to participate in a breathalyzer after a flight from Las Vegas to Charlotte, N. C., at which point he blew up in a .0050 and .0052. But, according to Adkins, Riley’s colleagues have never detected any odor, or drunken behavior, as Riley during the last four-hour-plus flight.

“For the House to blow up, with a 0.05 to 4 hours and 15 minutes of flying, he would have had to have been a stumbling drunk on the flight, and mini-bottles of airplane alcohol to stock up without having to be noticed by the other passengers and crew members, and that is to be processed by any log,” said Adkins.

Adkins also said that he believed that Riley’s keto diet, which in combination with the “outdated” technology of the particular breathalyzer machine used, who was responsible for the false positive.

Riley added that he was afraid the same thing will continue to happen to other staff members on the ketogenic diet, unless the air carrier of changes in the hardware.

“I just want to make sure they use a more accurate test to see if a person is giving you a reason as to why this might be happening,” he said.

Riley reportedly wants to be reinstated as a flight attendant with American Airlines. The carrier has declined to comment on the matter at this time.
