being in the middle of a booze scandal.
The flight attendants had had dinner with 2 pilots during an
overnight-stop and continued to drink after the pilots had left.
This eventually led to an "intimate" video being recorded.
The authorities have been getting complaints of alcohol induced
behaviour from their staff:
"In an unrelated incident, another employee resigned after failing a
breath test before working on a flight.
Last month, the airline launched an investigation into reports that an
intoxicated off-duty flight attendant 'straddled' All Blacks fullback
Following an investigation the flight attendant was warned and allowed
to return to work, and the airline said suggestions that an off-duty
crew member performed 'any kind of dance' were incorrect.
After that incident management immediately stopped the consumption of
alcohol for cabin crew working on short-haul and mid-haul flights.
In July, crew assigned to fly stranded passengers from Hawaii to
Auckland were accused of drinking heavily and becoming unfit for duty
if the plane had been airworthy, the Herald on Sunday reported."
