Lufthansa A346 enroute on Oct 12th 2012, fumes sicken two flight attendants
Last Update: October 12, 2012 / 12:58:43 GMT/Zulu time
Emergency services identified a container containing Polyalkylamines (derivative of ammonia) as possible source of the fumes, however, the container, that had been stowed unsecured in the aft cargo hold, showed no indication of damage or leakage. The source of fumes could so far not be identified with certainty.
Polyalkylamides are rated hazardeous goods by NOAA being a corrosive and highly flammable liquid that (in both liquid and vapour form) can cause toxic effects like severe burns to skin and eyes and the vapour of which can cause dizziness or suffocation.
