London–APA. The pilot of a Boeing 777 due to fly from London to Mumbai in India was taken off the plane by police after a breath test showed he had consumed excessive amounts of alcohol at a Christmas party the night before, APA reports.
It said armed police swooped the cockpit of the Indian-based Jet Airways plane at London’s Heathrow airport to arrest 62-year-old Michael Harr shortly before take-off.
Among the 300 passengers were on last Sunday’s flight.
