“For any passengers out there, whether you are a frequent flyer, an occasional flyer, a seasonal flyer or will be a first-time flyer soon, I would like to say to you: Never drink tap water from the plane bathroom,” flight attendant Celina Bedding told the Mirror on Monday.
“Many studies have shown it’s not sanitary for drinking. You may have seen the sign already as most planes have it by the tap. You may have thought it’s just a way to get you to buy a drink. But it’s actually for your own health. So definitely do not drink tap water on a plane.”
A 2019 studyby Hunter College found that many airlines have possibly provided passengers with unhealthy drinking water.
The researchers recommend flyers only consume water from sealed bottles.
It would also be wise to not drink coffee or tea that was prepared on board, Bedding advised.
