CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A flight attendant union says crew members from three earlier flights of a US Airways plane that made
people sick in Charlotte haven't returned to work because they're too ill.
The Charlotte Observer reported that Judith Murawski of the Association of Flight Attendants says eight pilots and crew members on flights in December and January haven't returned to work.
Nine people on the same plane were taken to a Charlotte hospital Tuesday after they complained of symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic fumes.
US Airways spokeswoman Michelle Mohr confirmed some crew members from a Jan. 16 flight have not returned work. She didn't know about other flights.
A spokeswoman for the FAA says US Airways mechanics determined bad seals on a rear door allowed engine exhaust into the plane.
