Sick Pax And Crew, Different Flights, Same Airplane
« on: March 16, 2010, 06:30:24 PM »
"CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Nine crew members and passengers aboard a Jamaica-bound US Airways flight were taken to a hospital with coughs and sore throats after smelling strong odors Tuesday, two months after 15 people aboard the same jet were treated for similar problems."

"The same aircraft, a Boeing 767, was yanked out of service for five days and inspected after seven crew members and eight passengers aboard a Jan. 16 flight arriving in Charlotte from St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, complained of scratchy throats and itchy eyes, Mohr said."


"Ground crews found the jet had a slight fuel leak that vaporized into the cabin air system. They repaired the problem, Mohr said."

Below is an article I saw on Av Herald a few days back about the Jan incident:

"...engine oil had leaked through a faulty seal into the bleed air supplying the air conditioning system."
