Episode 12 – Kathrin Bary-Schüller

Guest Speaker – Kathrin Bary-Schüller

Kathrin is a 39 year old mother of two beautiful sons, who started her career in aviation 18 years ago as check in agent while still studying economics at university. In 2005 she felt like she needed a break from studying and started flying. She never went back, the virus infected her. She loved it!

3 years later she became Purser (head of the cabin).

Her career had a rough ending in 2016, after experiencing 5 Fume Events within 22 months ( 2014 – 2016). In 2018 she became permanently unfit to fly due to the chronic health effects and impairments that resulted from the fume events.

Kathrin is the founder as well as board member of the nonprofit organization Patient initiative Contaminated Cabin Air, P-CoC in short. She also runs her blog “Kabinenlobby”. She also advocates politically for the improvement of the legal status of affected crew after fume events.
