Srilankan pilots threaten work-to-rule campaign

Srilankan pilots are scheduled to launch a work-to-rule campaign tomorrow demanding that action be taken to ensure that the methodology adopted by the airline to find out whether pilots work under the influence of liquor confirms to internationally accepted standards.

A spokesman for pilots said the trade union action was being taken on account of the interdiction of a pilot who had objected to the manner in which pilots were being subjected to alcohol tests following a recent incident where an allegedly drunk pilot delayed a flight.
