Pilots offloaded due to drinking is rare

Pilots not allowed to fly due to consumption of alcohol as in SQ 247 recently is rare. As far as I can remember there was only another occasion whereby the captain of a flight was bumped off due to drinking alcohol. This happened some 30 over years ago. Strangely, a pilot from another airline complained to the authorities when he noticed the captain appeared intoxicated drunk they checked out of a hotel in Bangkok.
There were more cases of stewards reported for drinking during flight. However, without 1 or 2 cabin crew, the flight would still operate.

Cabin crew are insignificant (not important)

SQ is an accident waiting to happen.
