Passengers became flushed, overheated and nauseated. Two people allegedly vomited.

    What a way to spend a special day in a party bus :( Every monday your maint. Guy should start the vehicle while they clean the interior with the ac on to make sure its working.

I would like to know the age of the vehicle in the article
