Julianne March from Waukesha, Wisconsin, appeared under the influence on a United Express flight from Chicago to South Bend, Indiana, on August 2.

She is 49 years old.

Julianne March Drunk

On Aug. 2, passengers onboard the United Airlines-owned Air Wisconsin flight noticed March acting oddly, charging documents say. Some passengers thought she was drunk, while others worried she was having a medical issue or even a stroke. Passengers later told authorities that March’s condition left them feeling “scared for their lives.”

Aaron Scherb, a passenger on the flight who tweeted about the incident, wrote that March could not make it through the security announcement and seemed unable to stand or walk without stumbling.

When the plane finally landed in South Bend, St. Joseph County Airport Authority officers boarded the plane and found March sitting down, charging documents say. She started crying and at first refused to stand. Officers asked her where she thought she was, and March allegedly answered, “Chicago.” When she did, March needed to hold on to a seat to steady herself.

Officers observed March’s bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, poor balance and the smell of alcohol on her breath, charging documents say. They did not believe she had a medical emergency. After verbally agreeing to and later refusing a breathalyzer test, March was transported to St. Joseph County Jail. On the way, she told the transporting officer than she had taken two vodka “shooters” before going to work that morning.

Julianne March Tests and Charged

March later consented to a breathalyzer test, and her blood-alcohol reading was 0.204. She was released on Aug. 3, and charged with a misdemeanor Thursday.

Drunken airline staff

The incident is not the first time United Airlines staff have come under fire for apparent drunkenness on a flight.

Just last week, two pilots were arrested when they turned up drunk to a flight from Glasgow Airport to New Jersey.

The flight, number UA162 to Newark in New Jersey, was due to leave Glasgow at 9am, but was cancelled after the pair’s arrest.

Remarkably, the incident comes three years after two other United Airlines pilots were arrested for being drunk before flying the same Glasgow Airport to Newark route.

First Officer Paul Grebenc, 35, was sentenced to 10 months in prison while his colleague Carlos Roberto Licona, 45, was jailed for 15 months for attempting to fly while under the influence of alcohol.

Last year, a British Airways flight attendant downed eight bottles of vodka miniatures while working on a long-haul flight.

A passenger smelt alcohol on her breath and the divorced mother-of-two was arrested at Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5 when it touched down on February 21, 2018.

On July 18, 2016, Air Transat pilots Jean-Francois Perreault, 41, and Imran Zafar Syed, 39, were arrested minutes before a flight from Glasgow to Toronto was due to take off.

Blood tests found they were above the legal alcohol limit but the case collapsed in 2018 when prison staff destroyed some of the samples and they managed to avoid jail.

Meanwhile, on a United Airlines flight from Newark to Glasgow in September 2018, the plane captain was spotted having a nap.

Passengers were stunned when they saw the captain change out of his uniform and get some sleep in first class, just an hour into their flight.
