LONDON-The crew of a Japan Airlines flight was travelling by bus to Heathrow Airport here when the bus driver had a suspicion that there was something wrong with the co-pilot.

Japan Airlines apologized for the pilot's actions and said it would take the violations seriously.

Japan Airlines Co. has apologized after one of its co-pilots was arrested in London for failing an alcohol test before flying on a London-Tokyo flight.

Tests found the 42-year-old first officer had 189 milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood in his system, nearly 10 times the 20 milligrams limit for a pilot.

The legal limit for pilots is 20 mg, while drivers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are allowed as much as 80 mg.
