It's no secret that airplanes are floating petri dishes in the sky. It's inevitable that someone on a plane will contaminate everyone sitting around them with all that recycled air and close quarters. That's why people always get sick after they fly. A new report revealed some very gross facts about flying that will make you think twice about what you touch when traveling to your next exotic location.
Next time a flight attendant offers you a blanket or pillow, be polite but never accept. This is so gross ... the blankets and pillows NEVER get washed! They just get refolded and placed back in plastic bags.
Better to buy one of those neck pillow things and either bring your own blanket from home or travel with an extra sweater or sweatshirt to keep you cozy, warm and germ free!
