Airline Water - Coffee & Tea Drinkers beware

Do you drink the water on an airplane? Forbes suggests that you might want to think twice about that.

All I can say is eeeww....

Nice... Sick

And how timely as we're flying to Europe tomorrow and will be a 9 hour flight. No coffee or tea for me! Actually, I don't usually drink that on a plane anyway.

BUT, I wonder where the ice comes from? Because I DO like to have a cup of ice to "sip on". Keeps me cool and hydrated.

And that is a very good question KenJ!!!!! I usually like a cup of ice also......I don't even like the soda, I think it tastes wired too and I know it comes from a can....and I hate the fact that you can't even get a full can of soda! They have to split it up between everyone and you just get a small cup.

Yuck! I'm definitely sticking to a can of ginger ale or my own bottled water from now on.

Every time I've flown, I've gotten my own can of pop.

I don't usually drink coffee or tea on a flight. I have motion sickness that occurs in vehicles (long distances) and when traveling by air. I usually get ginger ale to help settle my stomach if I'm not sleeping when they come by.

Well I guess I won't be drinking coffee on the plane anymore. I will make sure that I bring my own water and my own cup of java. Ick, ick, ick.

Oh gross. Gross. Gross. I'm a huge coffee drinker. And I'm just now remembering last week flying to Orlando, the flight attendant offered to refill my Dunkin' Donuts cup with coffee so I had an extra LARGE cup of it!! GROSS!!
