Ahead, the carrier has acknowledged that they need to install more stringent restrictions on the consumption of alcohol for their flight attendants and engineers.

On Dec. 20, the Japan Times reported that a 46-year-old woman flight attendant was marked by two fellow staff members who “smelled alcohol in her breath” after they board the plane at the Narita International Airport, although the woman initially succeeded in passing the first mandatory pre-flight breathalyzer test.

To insist that the pitchfork be re-tested, the woman failed the second test, with the 0.15 milligrams of alcohol detected on her breath, about 0.10 milligrams limit set by Japan Airlines for its pilots.
