Holidaytravelwatch Assists First Passenger Group Action On Alleged Aerotoxic Syndrome
HolidayTravelWatch is assisting a group of holidaymakers, in what is believed to be the first ever group action in the UK, for the condition known as Aerotoxic Syndrome.
The passengers allege that they became ill on board a British Registered aircraft en route to Florida, a Boeing 767, on 1 February 2007. Amongst the reported symptoms are the following:
• Respiratory problems;
• Chest Crackles;
• Stomach Cramps;
• Gastro-Intestinal difficulties;
• Pins & Needles;
• Chest Pain;
• Memory difficulties
Since their return to the UK, passengers report that they still suffer with many of the aforementioned symptoms, and some are continuing to receive medical assistance.
HolidayTravelWatch is now speaking with, and assisting a number of holidaymakers, affected by this flight.
Frank Brehany, MD of HolidayTravelWatch states,
“This would appear to have been a distressing incident for those passengers affected by illness on board. We are now speaking to a number of affected passengers, all of whom will be receiving legal advices”.
Frank Brehany concludes,
“If any holidaymaker is affected by illness on board any aircraft, then I would recommend that the following action is taken:
1. Notify the airline and the CAA immediately of any smells or fumes experienced on your flight – before you leave the airport;
2. Notify the airline and the CAA of any illness suffered either during or immediately following your flight – before you leave the airport;
3. Make a record of the events you are complaining of – retain that record;
4. Obtain the contact details of fellow passengers also affected by these issues – do not give this to the airline or the CAA;
5. Obtain immediate and ongoing medical attention from your own medical practitioner;
6. Do not provide access to medical notes and records without receiving independent advices;
7. Do not accept any compensation/vouchers without receiving independent advices;
8. Contact HolidayTravelWatch for free and confidential advice”.
All holidaymakers affected by any of these issues should call the National Helpline 01217478100 or make contact through the Organisation’s website – www.holidaytravelwatch.com
