You beat me to it, I just came here to post exactly this link.

What disturbs me most is the aggressive secrecy surrounding it all.

The air passengers and crew breathe on board in nearly all jet airliners is "bleed air" taken from the flow of air entering the engine and piped into the cabin. The fear is that it can become contaminated by toxic engine oil, containing chemicals called organophosphates.

Ouch. That's... bad. Kind of breathing your car exhaust ?!!

More seriously: imagine if that issue forces a major re-think of the so-called "bleed air" system. This could hurt altogether: airlines, aircraft makers, and engine makers. As if they needed that with freakkin' COVID devastating that industry...
