Description

WLS-TV (Chicago) investigates why thousands of passengers flying to the U.S. from more than a dozen foreign countries are sprayed with pesticide, in the plane cabin, before they land. Passengers are getting sick and several airlines are getting sued over a practice done for decades. As a result of the story several foreign air carriers were notified that they did not need to spray inbound passengers and that they were breaking U.S. regulation by doing so prior to landing, 1994.
