On 19 October 2012 a Thomas Cook Boeing 767 flight from Manchester to Tenerife was forced to make an emergency landing in Dublin after smoke was detected in the cabin. All 323 passengers were evacuated from the plane. This was the third incident in October 2012 involving reports of smoke in the cabins of Boeing aircraft. Irwin Mitchell is representing passengers injured in all three incidents.
Cabin smoke during flight is serious as there may be a risk of fire. Furthermore, due to toxins that may be present, inhalation of smoke/ fumes can also cause injury. Irwin Mitchell is investigating the accident to determine what caused the smoke and whether it could have contained any toxins.
