Airline cabin air is recycled as much as 100% on newer craft. During flight delays the filtering system is not completely functional adding additional risk to infection through your respiratory system.  In addition the extremely low in humidity of the air can dry the mucous membranes of your nose, mouth, throat and breathing tubes) reducing your bodies ability to keep out viruses and bacteria. Besides the increased risk of infection the low oxygen content can be irritating to those with less than healthy lungs and your eyes can become irritated by the low humidity.

With the exception of drinking lots of fluids and avoiding alcohol which can dehydrate you there is not a lot you can do. For foreign trips you can research whether the airline allows smoking on domestic legs. You can plan ahead should you catch a cold or illness. If you have chronic lung problems or a compromised immune system be sure to check with your doctor before flying.
