Crew are more susceptible to these fume events due to toxic air buildup. The body has only so much resistance. While the passengers are exposed to toxic air on one or two flights, crew are susceptible on many flights. This is becoming a big issue on Airbus aircraft. I think pilots and FA's are worki...
