'It's Never Clean': Flight Attendant Reveals Why You Should Never Consume This Drink On Airplane
A flight attendant has warned against ordering a specific drink when on a flight.Celina Bedding has highlighted the food and drinks travellers should "never" order when flying at 30,000 feet. The crew member argued that holidaymakers should never drink tap water and avoid plane food as much as they can.It would also be wise not to drink coffee or tea that was prepared on board, Bedding advised.Celina urged passengers to "avoid plane food as much as you can" as it often contains high quantities of salt and sugar in order to counteract the taste-bud-numbing effects of flying. This also tends to make it quite unhealthy.The flight attendant explained: "The reason behind it is the fact that because of the cabin pressure, we lose around 30 per cent of our taste buds. So the companies that prepare food for the airlines add much more salt to it in order to have a nice flavour at 40,000 feet."Despite ham and cheese toasties and sandwiches being the most popular meals on a plane, the crew member recommended ditching these and opting for a salad instead.
