Attendant removed from flight charged with intoxication

A flight attendant on a Chicago-to-South Bend flight has been charged with public intoxication.

When the plane landed, the flight attendant from Waukesha, Wisconsin, apparently started crying, under the belief that she was still in Chicago.

Passenger Aaron Scherb took to Twitter, writing: "Our flight attendant appears to be quite drunk on this [flight] from from [sic] ORD to SBD".

He said March "appeared to pass out" in her seat without fastening her seatbelt for almost the whole flight - which was actually operated by Air Wisconsin, meaning it was an Air Wisconsin crew and flight attendant.

Passengers later fastened her seatbelt for her.

"A few passengers reported they felt scared for their lives based upon the apparent condition of Ms. March", charging documents detailed, as per the Tribune.

Her blood-alcohol level was 0.204, which is five times the legal limit for flight attendants.

The South Bend Tribune reports Air Wisconsin Airlines says that it's "fully cooperating with the local authorities".

Passengers were concerned over the lack of communication between pilot and March, and wondered why there was only one attendant assigned to the flight.

March was arrested and booked into the St. Joseph County Jail on August 2, and was released the next day on her own recognizance.
