Former flight attendant Terry Williams, has settled out of court with Boeing after toxic fumes leaked into the cabin of an American Airlines plane in April 2007 and doctors diagnosed her with neurotoxic disorder due to exposure of the fumes.

Williams said she experienced watering eyes, a tight throat, a cough. She also said she developed a headache that still hasn’t gone away. Williams says that because of her exposure to the toxic air, she has suffered memory loss, tremors, vision and speech impairment, disabling coughing spasms, sore throat, asthma, fatigue, nausea, loss of balance, and tingling and numbness in her feet, shoulders, arms, and hands.

During the trial, Boeing turned over nearly 250,000 page of documents, some of which acknowledge cabin air contaminated and show that Boeing has tried to fight the problem with detection and filtration systems. The documents also show that company executives revealed that people could experience health problems if and when toxic fumes leak into the bleed-air systems on the planes.

The amount and conditions of the out-of-court settlement are confidential, the Daily Mail reported. disclaimer: This article: Boeing Settles in Toxic Airplan Cabin Fume Lawsuit was posted on Friday, October 7th, 2011 at 7:14 pm at and is filed under Toxic Substances Lawsuits.
