More and more passengers are speaking out against other passengers taking care of their personal hygiene in-flight, especially when it comes to women applying nail polish. Passengers are not allowed to use or carry nail polish or nail polish remover while flying because both are extremely flammable. They shouldn’t even be kept in a carry-on.
Last week a flight from Miami to Barbados had to go back to the airport due to a strong chemical odor. It’s suspected that the odor was highly flammable acetone, the key ingredient of nail polish remover, leaking in a passenger’s carry-on suitcase. Some passengers became sick because of the strong smell.
