Over 100 passengers left stranded when the plane's co-pilot was found drunk
The airline offered replacement seats on the next available flight, which was three days after the initial flight.
106 passengers have been left stranded in Germany when it was discovered that the co-pilot of their flight was drunk.
The TAP Air Portugal flight was scheduled to leave Stuttgart for Lisbon on Friday evening, when an airport employee noticed that the flight's co-pilot was walking unsteadily and smelled of alcohol.
According to CNBC News, the airport authorities decided to keep the flight on the ground, and it is unclear if the co-pilot was detained.
All 106 passengers were put up in hotels overnight, but the airline tweeted to customers to let them now that they would be given seats on the next available flight, which was scheduled to leave for Lisbon on Monday morning.
Hi Andreas, we apologise for the situation and for all the inconvenience it may cause you. Your flights are now rescheduled for March 26th, which is, at the moment, the first day with seats available.
