Virgin Pilot Released On Bail

Posted on 29 October 2007

A Virgin pilot has been released on bail after he was arrested for allegedly being over the legal limit of alcohol.

The relief co-pilot was onboard a flight from Heathrow to Miami which caused the flight to depart Heathrow with a replacement flight deck crew.

Virgin Atlantic said in a statement that it "would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused and would like to reassure passengers that the airline will be investigating this matter thoroughly in accordance with its strict company policies in relation to operational staff. The safety and security of its passengers and crew is Virgin Atlantic's top priority."
