The British AAIB (Air Accident Investigation Branch) released their bulletin concluding ¬†the probable cause of an incident that British Airways A321 had near London on Dec 20th 2011 :
“The symptoms experienced by the commander may have been the result of the after-effects of a cold, combined with coincidental head and aircraft movement. The temporary symptoms experienced by the co-pilot may have been a reflection of the potentially evolving situation of an incapacitation at an early stage in the flight leading to possible mild hyperventilation.”
