Millions of holidaymakers preparing to travel abroad this summer have received a warning from two flight attendants about certain beverages that should be avoided while flying.
Deja, a flight attendant who shares videos on TikTok as I.amdejaa, advised passengers in a post, saying, “When you are traveling on an airplane, please don’t drink coffee or tea.”
Deja went on to explain her claim that the water tanks on airplanes are never cleaned and can be quite disgusting.
Instead, she recommended that passengers purchase their hot beverages from cafes or restaurants in the airport before boarding, after going through security to avoid exceeding liquid allowances.
Another flight attendant, Jet, who writes a blog about working as a cabin crew member, also cautioned against certain drink choices.
Jet specifically mentioned Diet Coke, stating, “Soft drinks foam up a lot more when poured out of a can, and the worst culprit for this is Diet Coke – I literally have to sit and wait for the bubbles to fall before I can continue pouring.
If all three passengers ask for Diet Coke, I’ll often get them started, take another three drink orders, serve those, and then finish the Diet Cokes.”
The reason behind the delay in serving Diet Coke is not due to any issue with the brand or taste, but rather the carbonation and air pressure inside the can.
Jet explained that the air pressure keeps the Coke in the can, and when it is flipped upside down, the Coke doesn’t come out until the can is lifted and slightly tilted.
This controlled pouring reduces the risk of spills or overflow.
The same principle applies to all fizzy drinks on airplanes, as carbonation can also contribute to heartburn experienced by many during flights.
Moreover, the dry air on a plane compared to the ground can lead to dehydration, making fizzy drinks and alcohol particularly unsuitable for consumption before and during flights.
Passengers are advised to be mindful of their beverage choices to ensure a comfortable and healthy travel experience.
