Drunk on duty, airport agency staffers sacked

Kolkata: Never mind if bars were shut on Independence Day. Two employees of Impressions, the Delhi-based facility management firm that is responsible for maintaining Terminal 2 at Kolkata airport, converted a corner of the snazzy terminal into a cozy lounge to enjoy a drink.
The cheeky duo had even covered the nearby CCTV camera with a piece of cloth to avoid being detected, but was unlucky to be spotted by a hawk-eyed Jet Airways pilot who happened to be walking by for an early morning flight from Delhi. Following the insistence of the captain, who also happens to be the chairman of the Airlines Operators' Committee in Kolkata, Airports Authority of India (AAI) was forced to press for action against the two. Impressions sacked them on Friday afternoon.
