Indeed Barking mad, the level of ignorance on here by so called aviators is quite staggering.

For anyone in any doubt here is a list of possible symptoms:

So that's what wrong with me!!


What do I do now, who do I blame?

Who can I sue? seeing as I have flown zillions of different flights. I already contacted the authorities and they seem helpless in understanding.

Is there some kind of support group that has money that I can tap into? My doctors don't have any known cure other than placebos and I'm destitute.

Cliff notes of the linked ITV report - of 100+ only one(?!) person gets carbon monoxide poisoning. Apparently non pilots are immune.

Study shows no link but people still looking.

^^^^ Soooo, how does the aerotoxicity figure into this????

How does the aerotoxicity know how to stay in the cockpit and not go into the rest of the cabin?

There was a mist and strange odour throughout the passenger cabin too, confirmed by the cabin crew.

Humble pie for ignoring how serious Aerotoxic Syndrome is to the industry.

British airlines 'face multiple toxic air claims'

Seventeen former and serving cabin crew are planning legal action against British airlines saying they have been poisoned by contaminated cabin air.

The cases are funded by the Unite union which represents 20,000 flight staff.
Workers believe they have fallen sick after breathing in fumes mixed with engine oil and other toxic chemicals.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) says incidents of smoke or fumes on planes are rare and there is no evidence of long-term health effects.

Yes interesting read. I note one group of "experts" are saying the victims are possibly suffering from the Nocebo effect.

Let's not refight the "yes it exists - No it doesn't" argument again but concetrate on the legal action

Trouble is once you are in the Courts you are inteh hands of jurors and the legal profession - neither of whom are likely to be impressed by a straight denial of harm -

for a start a guilty verdict opens up a whole new profitable set of actions for m'learned friends.............

Can we revisit this as something new, after the verdict? We have enough politics in our daily newspapers and in existing threads

every job has its own risk.
if not happy they should leave aviation.
As long as you fly, you need to accept toxic air and cosmic radiation. That's life.

Just the same as the sheep dip farmers and asbestos victims were told it was all in their head. The truth always comes out, having a potent neurotoxin in the air of the small confines of an aircraft cabin is obviously a threat to anyone's health.

From the linked article:

"In 2013, an independent group of scientists, the Committee on Toxicity, looked at the evidence of long-term health effects for the government. The levels [of harmful chemicals in planes] were as low or even lower than those in the home or the workplace," said Prof Alan Boobis, current chairman of the committee.


"We can't be sure what the levels are in fume events, which are very rare, but we do have some information which would indicate that even in those circumstances levels are probably below those which would affect health in humans."


Obviously, this committee is part of the "vast conspiracy" that is engaged in a "cover up" of the "mass murder" now happening in the skies all over the world.
