The pilot of a domestic US flight has been suspended after failing an alcohol test as he prepared to fly.

Forty-eight year old Kolbjorn Jarle Kristiansen aroused the suspicion of security agents who smelled alcohol on him while travelling in a lift together.

The flight was delayed for two and a half hours while another pilot was found.

Officials say they are waiting for the results of blood tests before deciding whether to charge Kristiansen.
