Hi, everyone.

I have recently noticed that whenever I fly on A320's I develop serious
synus crises, which cause me severe head and nose pain. The situation seems
to develop minutes after when the aircraft  reaches cruising altitude, and
as soon as it starts descending it starts to improve gradually, so that
when I reach an altitude around 10,000 - 12,000 ft the pain is miraculously
gone. This seems not to happen on other types of aircraft - and recently
I've flown B757, B767, A310, B737, and MD-80 series. I've also flown (quite
safely) on B727, B747 and L500.

I wonder if other people have the same problem, and if the situation can be
linked to the pressurisation and humidity (or rather, lack of it) of the
cabin air of the A320. Also, I would appreciate knowing if  other people
have had similar problems on other aircraft.

Any replies welcome. Thanks to one and all.
