Some people thin the bathroom on their flight may be the dirtiest place, but the filthiest spot is right in front of your seat.
The table tray is crawling with germs and bacteria, according to a study by Travel Math.
While bathrooms are cleaned between every flight, there is no way of knowing how often airlines are cleaning their trays.
Tested table trays were found to have an average of 2,155 colony-forming units (CFUs) per square inch.
Trays catch all of the sneezing, coughing, touching, and its right there in front of all the air-sick passengers, in addition to the food that is served.
Other dirty areas include air vents, lavatory flush buttons and seat belt buckles.
Passengers should always try to disinfect the tray before using it.
Though the study didn’t specify which exact kinds of bacteria were found, Travel Math reported that all the samples they took from the planes were negative for the presence of fecal Coliforms such as E. coli, which can potentially be infectious.
Enjoy your next flight!
