There are general complaints about burning eyes and other problems with mucus in the nose, skin problems. Reporter: The flight, with 287 passengers and 12 crew members, diverting to Dublin, Ireland, because of that strong odor. When the plane landed, the three sickened transported to the hospital. Every airplane re-circulates its air completely every two minutes, so the possibility of this affecting people nearby was quite low.

David? All right, gio, thank you.
