(AP) - Japan Airlines Co. has apologized after one of its co-pilots was arrested in London for failing an alcohol test before flying on a London-Tokyo flight.
JAL said Thursday the co-pilot was arrested Sunday for violating British aviation law.
According to Japan's NHK television, the driver of a crew bus at Heathrow Airport smelled alcohol on the co-pilot and reported it to police.
JAL said the co-pilot, whose name was withheld, acknowledged that breath and blood tests found alcohol levels "ten times" over the legal limit.
JAL said the flight was delayed more than one hour and had to be operated by the remaining two pilots.
