United Airlines: drunk pilot

It seems like it is the norm these days; a pilot shows up to work a little tipsy. The Telegraph in London reports that a 44 year old man was arrested by authorities aboard a Boeing 777 that was bound for San Francisco. Passengers did not have a clue for hours, until they were finally notified of the situation.

I know London has some great pubs and some awesome ales, but really? What is happening to this profession? Pilots landing on taxi ways, drinking and showing up to work, overflying an airport by 150 miles?
