Reply To: Toxic Air Syndrome

Back to Forum


Hello. If you have had a moment to check out the recommended website ( and there are more similar ones, also in German ) – you will read hundreds and hundreds of fume reports with people suffering during and after a flight/flights and chronically with ill health. Crew members, pilots, passengers! It is too much to post here regarding the medical details that lead to the differences in reaction of people, with which I am referring to the gentleman who said he has been flying for 20 years and no bother ! Lucky you ! yes, that is of course possible ! Some develop cancer, some dont! On the other hand there’s those, like myself, who also flew 20plus years, and became sicker and sicker, and we can now proof that cabin air is contaminated not only from jet engine oil cocktails containing neurotoxic and cancerous gents, but also from other contaminants, like i.e. pesticide sprays etc, and that our health issues are due to inhaling neurotoxic chemicals through analyzing samples which show the typical and unique ” fingerprint” of the jet engine oils in use. Practically all aircraft models are affected, some worse than others – some flights will be fine, others not. The problem is known to be chronically under reported ! Many passengers de-board feeling sick and just put it down to having eaten something or jet-lag! You can also watch a documentary by the Dutch TV Zembla which was released last month on the subject.
