If youve got an early morning flight or youre struggling to stay awake, a cup of coffee will always be of help.
But you might want to avoid the hot beverage on flights because of one shocking reason.
A flight attendant revealed a disgusting secret about the coffee served on planes.
And its not good news for tea drinkers either.
“Its the same potable water that goes through the bathroom system”
The anonymous flight attendant told Vice: “Coffee. Dont drink the coffee on airplanes.
“Its the same potable water that goes through the bathroom system.
“We recently had a test for E.coli in our water and it didnt pass and then maintenance came on and hit a couple of buttons and it passed.
“So avoid any hot water or tea. Bottled and ice is fine, of course.”
Previously, another flight attendant revealed why you should never drink tomato juice on planes.
Andrea Song urges flyers to be mindful about the sodium content in their drinks.
She told Escape.co.au: “I always avoid high sodium foods in the days prior as joints especially in the legs, feet and ankles tend to swell as a result of this food group.
"When flying, I also avoid this food group and advise to avoid tomato juice at all costs.
“I say this because a Bloody Mary Mix contains 12-times more sodium than a soft drink."
