NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India's airline authorities caught 57 pilots over the alcohol limit about to take to the cabin of passenger-carrying jets over the past two years, but most were cleared to fly again, media said on Friday.
Only 11 of the pilots found to be under the influence of alcohol in random pre-flight medical tests between January 2009 and November 2010 lost their job, the Times of India newspaper said, citing a statement by Aviation Minister Vayalar Ravi to lawmakers.
The rest were hit with varying punishments determined by their airline, such as warning letters or a fine.

Oh jeez, the same here, the East Indian truck drivers. Six or seven in a cab, they'll buy a bottle or three and hit the hwy. You can bet whoever is driving has not got a licence. Ever see the way they drive in India? Now put those guys and a bottle on N American roads in a semi
