Flight attendant stumbles, passes out before takeoff

Flight attendant stumbles, passes out before takeoff

March was charged with criminal public intoxication, a misdemeanor, and Wisconsin Air - who was operating the United Flight - released a statement confirming she had been fired.

A flight attendant was so severely intoxicated she was stumbling all over the cabin and ended up passing out in her seat for most of the flight, with alarmed passengers having to fasten her seatbelt for her.

A police report obtained by the network stated she required assistance to stand, had bloodshot eyes and wrongly answered "Chicago" when asked where she was.

A United States flight attendant has been arrested and charged after passing out on a plane and not knowing what city she was in once the flight landed, police said.

"The flight attendant involved in this incident is no longer an employee of the company", an Air Wisconsin representative told ABC News.

March was sacked following the incident and was booked into the St. Joseph County Jail on suspicion of public intoxication.

March is due back in court for a hearing August 29 at 8 a.m.

Passenger Aaron Scherb tweeted United saying March was slurring her speech, couldn't walk straight and she fell asleep in the jump seat.

Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, chimed in on the story, WISN-TV reported.

But the flight was operated by Air Wisconsin, and the crew worked for the carrier. "While breathalyzers hopefully aren't needed on airplanes, given the recent incidents with alcohol involving pilots and flight attendants, it might be something that airlines have to consider".

And it appears the regional carrier did indeed take swift and appropriate action.

"We will continue to cooperate with local authorities and assist them as necessary". Nevertheless, he said he has not accepted the bid.
