fresh air

Has anyone ever asked the FAs to make sure all the air pacs were being used? I think it was Peter Greenburg that I heard on a TV show saying if you ask they have to comply.
I usually get nausiated on even short flights and am taking my first trip to Europe soon. I think the "fresh air" might help a little.

Could you elaborate a bit on this?

Cassandra, I think the way it works is that if the air pacs are turned on air is pulled through the engines, heated and then circulated throughout the cabin instead of the same stale air being recirculated. I think it saves the airlines money to have that funky air flowing instead of the fresher stuff.

I believe nytraveller is correct in his reply to your other post that the ratio of fresh air to recirculating air is controlled by the pilots, not a flight attendant. And each airline probably has its own guideline about the amount of fresh air, as getting that will decrease fuel efficiency.

Since the vast majority of the travelling public doesn't have problem on aircrafts, and that the people who actually should be concerned are the pilots and flight attendants (as they spend more hours in a plane than most travellers).

I also agree with what's being said in the other thread. If you get nauseated in even short flights, you should probably get some medicine from your doctor or over-the-counter to prepare for that.
