AAL Flight Crew Sickened After Landing

Generator Fumes Blamed

The flight crew of an American Airlines flight that landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport Saturday afternoon complained of feeling nauseous after the flight landed, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

According to FLL airport spokesperson Greg Meyer, paramedics treated the eight-person crew, as investigators inspected the aircraft to find the cause for the crew’s dizziness,

"They're not sure what it could be," Meyer said of the cause. "They're basically trying to figure what sort of problem it is."

Officials believe fuel from a generator may have leaked into the aircraft's cabin, and the fumes may have made the crew sick. Paramedics administered oxygen to the crew, and interviewed them. It was unclear if anyone was taken to the hospital, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The affected aircraft was an Airbus A300, operating Flight 1988 from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Meyer said. According to the airline's website, the flight left Haiti about 1:00 pm and arrived at Fort Lauderdale about 3:00 pm.

None of the passengers were affected. They deplaned and were able to claim their baggage and head home with their families, Meyer said.
