Police said Tuesday that they are looking into the case of a Qatar Airways purser and flight attendant suspected of flying while inebriated.
Police said they were following up a report lodged at 8.28am on Tuesday morning while the plane was on the tarmac at the Helsinki Airport.
Officers from the Itä-Uusimaa police department said that they received a report that the two male cabin crew members appeared to be under the influence as the flight was about to take off.
Airports operator Finavia said on its website that the flight was due to leave Helsinki at 9.50am for the Qatari capital of Doha, but it was delayed and will now leave at 10.00pm on Tuesday night.
Finnair media relations director Päivyt Tallqvist said that the airline will not comment on the case, since it concerns flight operator Qatar Airways.
