TAP Air Portugal had to apologize to over 100 passengers for delaying a flight due to a drunk co-pilot.

The flight originally scheduled to leave Stuttgart Airport in Germany on Mar. 23 to Lisbon, Portugal. It was, however, cancelled last minute when staff found one of the co-pilots smelling of alcohol. He couldn’t even walk straight!

After authorities were notified, the airline decided to keep the plane grounded, reports the NY Post. TAP Air Portugal provided all 106 passengers will a hotel room, and the flight pushed back to Mar. 26.

So the flight delayed for three days all because this pilot!
