Boston Flt Returns.

The Dub-Bos flight had to return yesterday due to 7 out the 8cc complaining of feeling sick. None of them were in need of hospital treatment. The flight was cancelled. Anyone any more news of this?. My source is aertel/rte.

New form of work to rule perhaps, or maybe just a nice day to be at the beach with the family?

Is it not a tad rude to curse on an online forum?

Maybe manners down there are different but certainly up here we wouldn't be cursing.

EIN111 currently on the move,

http://www.flightradar24.com/EIN111/396779d

Is this to bring the pax who had to return yesterday?

I googled the address and it says its SNN - JFK

Would Aer lingus have to get a replacement A/C to even cover people who maybe stuck in Boston?

What I've seen elsewhere is that the SNN-JFK flight is going SNN-DUB-JFK to replace the second JFK flight ex-DUB to give them the craft to do more to Boston. That its a 757 going to somewhere other than Toronto out of DUB seems to suggest that's the case anyway.

Not necessarily, if the crew were serving drinks/food then they would be first affected due to physical exertion. And I would guess that airline crew are trained to identify the symptoms, I would guess some pax did feel less that 100% but may not have known what was wrong.
Isn't lost of judgment one of the first signs of hypoxia?

Would the differential pressure change be seen on the cockpit?
