Nervous fliers, stop reading now.

Jitsukawa was apprehended as a crew bus driver caught whiffs of alcohol and informed the police, CNN cited Japanese broadcaster NHK as confirming.

A Japan Airlines co-pilot was arrested earlier this week after he was found to be almost ten times over the legal alcohol limit shortly before takeoff at Heathrow Airport.

Following the arrest, Japan Airlines temporarily doubled the time where pilots aren't allowed to consume alcohol from 12 hours to 24 hours before a flight.

First officer Katsutoshi Jitsukawa, 42, was already in the cockpit when police detained him on Sunday evening.

He appeared in court in London on Thursday and pleaded guilty to exceeding the alcohol limit, according to the BBC. The legal limit for a pilot is 20 mg.

Jitsukawa was scheduled to fly a 244-seater Boeing 777 aircraft.

It is also required that carbon monoxide alarms be installed outside all sleeping areas so you can hear it when you are sleeping. While changing the batteries, check for the age of each alarm; smoke and carbon monoxide alarms don't last forever.

After over an hour's delay, the flight departed under the charge of the two remaining pilots.

He confessed he drank two bottles of wine and a pitcher of beer the night before his flight.

He was ordered detained until he is sentenced on November 29.

In a statement, Japan Airlines said: "The company does not condone the individual's actions and takes this violation seriously, as safety remains our utmost priority".

Speaking to the Asahi Shimbun newspaper, Japan's transport minister said the government would look into toughening regulations on alcohol consumption by pilots in the wake of the incidents.

Japan Airlines is not the only major Japanese airline forced to apologize for alcohol-related disruption, Agence France-Presse reported.

Nor is the issue confined to Japanese airlines.
