If that was Ammonia based cleaning fluid then I'm not surprised!

Article says " bleach-like cleaning product", which means sodium hypochlorite to me. Equally nasty stuff, as it emits chlorine fumes. Not sure if that is permitted in aluminium aircraft?

Anything used by the cleaners without Hazmat equipment should probably be survivable. Overreaction?

From the article - a passenger said they were stranded in Dublin. They’re in a hotel in a great city. That isn’t stranded. Flight showing operating DUB-PHL tomorrow.

Too late for this hindsight. The dispatching of the flight now appears to have dug the airline into a hole which only will get deeper if the air accident authorities get involved. Will see how the passenger web sites balance this
