And the evidence is mounting.

Look up 'Aerotoxic syndrome' and why Easyjet suddenly and mysteriously decided to change all of its cabin filters after being sued by one of its pilots who got a medical death sentence from exposure to organophosphates.
Oh, and remember, if you work in the pointy end, you get the full, 100% undiluted stuff straight from the pack.
Maybe I'd rather breathe passenger farts after all.

Not if you fly the 787, oh wait CX donít have any.
