wtf. just sprayed with insecticide in aeroplane

Recommended Posts

Just leaving Madeira and get an announcement that don't be alarmed passengers but there will be insecticide sprayed to prevent any import of dangerous insects etc.

Smells like air freshener.  anyone heard of this before.  never encountered it before.

If we've grown 3 heads when we land will update you all!

You would think that would be on arrival not departure  as Madeira is the small isolated island.

I have a vague memory of something similar happening to me on arriving in NZ or Oz once. Still just the one head (albeit a lot less hair than I had at the time - do you think I should sue?)

Yes, years ago flying middle east to London. To prevent any mosquitoes from getting out at the other end with malaria inside them.  (I used to put the blanket over my head as they passed me by. Yuck. And most likely highly toxic to humans? )

I hate to be the one to break it to you but your feet smell.

The thing is we've been there a few times recently yet this is the first time this happened. We were very pissed off.
