Air Compression in the Cabin

Motion Sickness

Jet Lag

Air in the passenger cabin must be compressed because the atmospheric pressure outside the plane cannot support human life. Motion sickness is caused by a conflict between our sight sense and our sense of equilibrium which is located in the inner ear. The main cause of jet lag is the transition to a new time zone without giving the body an opportunity to adjust to the new night and day cycles.
