Explosive decompressions on aircraft do occur. They are more likely on airlines flying out of exotic dive locations; locations where the diver has probably made multiple dives on successive days. So this is a real question.

From the answers I surmise that Mike and others believe that:

If the diver cleans up with appropriate deco stops there should be no significant increased risk in flying right away.

Does this mean that if the deco is done with EANx50 and 02, or does this mean in general?

Lets take the diver who does 6 days of 2-3 dives per day on air with a maximum depth of 60ft always within NDLs and deco stops of 3 minutes at 15ft. Is there any evidence that this diver is cleaned up enough to fly?

If the answer is no, what are the cases that we have scientific evidence for?
