Airborne Gets Nailed

I've used their product for years. Yes, the marketing worked on me but the idea proposed by the company, that one dose can instantly protect you when flying, is incorrect.

The makers of Airborne have agreed to refund money to consumers as part of a $23.3 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit for false advertising. It does not admit wrongdoing or illegal conduct.

Products included are the Airborne Effervescent Health Formula, Airborne On-the-Go, Airborne Power Pixies, Airborne Nighttime, Airborne Jr., Airborne Gummi, and Airborne Seasonal (formerly sold as Airborne Seasonal Relief).

I'm not sure if I'll ask Airborne for a refund and I don't think I'm any worse off for using the product. And, when all is said and done, I really didn't believe that I would be immunized from disease. Rather, I expected an immune system boost.
