Flight Attendant Reveals This Plane Germ Hotspot

Nats Hacks

Chattanooga, Tennessee—

Travel expert and former flight attendant Jane Hawkes encourages travelers to bring wipes to clean the parts of a plane that routine cleanings miss.

“Regardless of cabin class, there are some parts of a plane which are dirtier than others,” Hawkes said. One such spot is the seatback tray…where you put your food and drinks.

“Seatback trays are not routinely cleaned between boarding especially on short turnarounds,” she warned. Next time you’re flying, you might want to give this spot a good wipe!
