When I fly, I usually order water from the inflight service. For all of these years, I thought I was going the healthy route to stay hydrated and boy was I wrong!
Fox News reports that “a 2019 Airline Water Study conducted by Hunter College NYC Food Policy Canter and DietDetective.com investigated the water quality on 23 different U.S. airlines. According to the results, many airlines allegedly provide passengers with unhealthy water.”
The study took a look at 10 major and 13 regional airlines. Water was scored on a level ranging from 0-5 with a 5 being the top score.
A score of 3 and up meant the H2O was safe and clean. Alaska Airlines and Allegiant scored the highest with a 3.3. Hawaiian wasn’t far behind with a 3.1.
The two lowest scoring major airlines were Spirit and JetBlue who each scored a 1!
Fox mentions that all of the regional airlines had low scores besides Piedmont.
The study suggests to not drink any water on flights unless it’s from a sealed bottle. You also shouldn’t think about drinking the coffee or tea.
The worst part… The study says that you should not wash your hands in the bathroom and to bring your own hand-sanitizer instead!
