airline water safety

An anonymous flight attendant has revealed that the water used to make coffee on airplanes during flights could contain e. coli. The flight attendant, who works for a major airline in the US, said that the water used for coffee is often the same as that used in the airplane toilet.

Other airline employees have stated that containers are not washed properly mainly because flight attendants are not provided with the appropriate tools to clean them. In addition, given the low cabin pressure aboard a plane in flight, water boils at a lower temperature and that may affect the safety of the beverages consumed by passengers.
