US airlines disable oxygen generators over security
Has anyone heard of this? I've never flown - what effect might this have on overall air quality inside the airline?US airlines have over the past three weeks removed or disabled bathroom oxygen generators on 6,000 jetliners and other aircraft over security concerns, officials said on Thursday. The Federal Aviation Administration issued a secret directive to airlines in February to address the issue, concerned someone could exploit the privacy of the bathroom to use the generator to fuel an explosive or fire.
The FAA said it was working with manufacturers to develop a tamper-proof generator for the bathroom.
