Slater himself was involved in a scandalous incident at JetBlue in 2010. That time, he activated the plane’s emergency exit sliding door, then left with two hands clutching two cans of beer. At the time of the incident, Slater was suffering from bipolar disorder and had problems with prescription drugs. He was fired after this case.
Last June, a Delta Air Lines flight attendant, Lemara Thompson, was found to have seven times the amount of alcohol in the body while working at Healthrow Airport in London. She was later prosecuted for drinking alcohol while on duty.
In January this year, a flight attendant in her 20s of All Nippon Airways (ANA) was caught drinking alcohol while working. The incident delayed the airline 4 flights, due to the rearrangement of the flight attendants in place of the girl who drank the other.
