Three Filthiest Surfaces on an Airplane

November 6, 2018

A big part of surviving air travel is not thinking about all of the filthy germs floating around in that small, contained space.

 

A new study by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Marketplace found the three surfaces on an airplane that have the highest levels of bacteria, and sometimes even bacteria that can make you sick.  They are:

 

1.  The headrests.  They aren't disinfected very often, and they definitely aren't cleaned that well between flights.

 

2.  The seat pockets.  Flight attendants say they've found things in seat pockets like half-eaten sandwiches, dirty diapers, used condoms, and used feminine products.

 

3.  The tray tables.

 

Now you know.  Pack your Purell.
