Unite’s cabin crew members have long-standing concerns about ‘Aerotoxic Syndrome’ – the effects of contaminated air they breathe on planes, and potential health problems.

In most modern aircraft unfiltered ‘bleed air’ from jet engines is used to supply the cabin, but due to design and in the event of an oil leak, fumes can make their way directly inside the aircraft cabin via the aircraft ventilation system. The only airliner not to use bleed air is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The union is calling on the airline industry to monitor cabin air and for an independent inquiry so that dangers can be fully assessed and investigated in an open forum.
