Some people love traveling on planes and some people hate it, but you can’t deny that it’s pretty cool to be served beverages thousands of feet up in the air. But when it comes time to decide what you want to wet your whistle as you soar above the earth, one flight attendant is recommending you stay away from tea, coffee, or any other beverage that involves an unsealed container of water.
According to Kat Kamalani, her experience as a flight attendant has taught her that while bottled and canned drinks are fine, she would personally never drink the tea or coffee offered on a plane. Why? Well, from what she’s seen, the coffee makers that provide the hot water for both the coffee and tea served on planes are “never” cleaned. The issue isn’t the coffee pots themselves, she says, but the actual machines.
Kat explained her experience in depth on a now-viral TikTok video that has over 3 million views, and many people are expressing disgust at her claims and gratitude to her for bringing it up in the first place.
