Oxygen pressure in the lungs is reduced significantly during a flight, and this means some guests experience a need for extra oxygen en route .
This applies especially to travelers with lung, heart and/or breathing problems. Guests suffering from a disease that means they are likely to require extra oxygen during the flight must therefore bring oxygen for both the outward and return journey .
