Food to go, no hot drinks and other rules.

Former flight attendant Kat Kamalani shared on her TikTok account (banned by Roskomnadzor) what to do and what not to do while flying. As someone who has been on board for six years, Kat knows what the average traveler might not know and shares that knowledge on her account, according to the Daily Mail.

The main thing is to never go on a flight without taking food for a snack in your hand luggage. “You never know what might happen,” the flight attendant explains. The second is not to drink hot drinks that are offered on board, that is, tea or coffee: “The reason is that the water tanks are never cleaned. They are terrible on the inside. The kettles are washed between flights, but the tanks never. In addition, they are located next to the toilets”. Interestingly, the observation of the flight attendant is confirmed by the results of a study by the City University of New York, the authors of which studied the water in airplanes for potability. Seven out of ten airlines had substandard water quality, so passengers were advised to drink only liquids from a sealed container.

The third point is self-explanatory: "always obey the flight attendants and what they say".

Fourth, before departure, find alternative airports, flights and hotels, so that if everything goes according to an unexpected scenario, return home in a different way.

Finally, the fifth is not to indulge in frank conversations with neighbors in a row.

Kat's followers on social networks added a few more points to her proposals. “I always take a blanket with me when I fly – it can get cold there,” wrote one woman. “I always have a toothbrush and toothpaste in my bag,” added another. Other ideas: never walk around an airplane cabin without shoes; take a change of linen with you in hand luggage (in case of loss of luggage) and eat before boarding. “I always buy food from restaurants at the airport and eat it before boarding. I don’t want the whole plane to smell my food,” another user notes.

So what to do and what not to do on the plane

  • Don't take off your shoes
  • Do not drink hot drinks on board
  • Take a blanket with you
  • Carry on a set of underwear
  • Have snacks with you
  • Obey flight attendants
  • Bring toothpaste and brush
  • Don't be frank with strangers on board
