    Why do I start coughing everytime I fly?

    I'm fine before take off and after landing.  Is it due to the altitude change and other atmospheric factors?

    The exact same thing happens to me. Before take off and after landing, the air conditioner is turned off. I think we cough because the air conditioner comes on during the flight and we cough up the little particles that are blown out of the air conditioner. After about five minutes of coughing, I'm usually OK.
