The flight was scheduled to take off around 7am, but TSA agents noticed the aviator was acting strangely, and reported the man. The flight was canceled after the co-pilot failed a breathalyzer test. The airline worked to rebook passengers onto other planes, but apparently some were stranded for a while.
