[...] Let me clear up a misconception here. The air in a commercial airliner is half fresh, half (or less) recirculated air. It is not currently possible to maintain the same air on board for 8 hours, or even one. As a rule of thumb, you can figure that the air completely changes every three minutes. -- Terry firstname.lastname@example.org "Anyone who thinks they can hold the company responsible for what I say has more lawyers than sense."
