Come Fly With Me? Report to The European Aviation Safety Agency

In 2009, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) called on pilots, crew, airlines, aircraft manufacturers and other interested parties, to submit their views on the problem of smoke or fumes escaping into aircraft cabins/cockpits.  We have written extensively on the issue that has become known as Aerotoxic Syndrome and the profound effects upon pilots, crew and passengers following exposure to engine fumes/smoke.  We launched our own online petition - The Brown Bag Campaign - which seeks to highlight the 'intelligent' debate on this important subject.  We have submitted our own report, whjich follows on from our own report to The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority.  The report to EASA contains the latest HolidayTravelWatch survey which contains important pointers and compels politicians that the time for action is now!

    How can I claim?
    • Have you suffered with failures in your holiday or flight contract?
    • Does your complaint against your holiday company arise in the last 6 years (UK Only) (flights 2 years)?

    Whatever type of claim you have, the level of damages you can hope to get is based on a number of factors. Firstly you have to prove your case and then an assessment is carried out to determine the level of damages.
