Kat Kamalani is a flight attendant who is perhaps keeping things too real on her TikTok account about all the disgusting stuff on planes that we should avoid.
You could start by avoiding planes entirely since we are still in a pandemic, but I know that’s unrealistic for everyone who wants to go on vacation.
Kamalani has quite a following revealing all these dirty secrets. In fact, it’s a little surprising that she still has a job to expose.
In this popular recent TikTok, she explains what you should not enjoy eating and drinking from the flight attendant’s cart.
“Rule #1. Never consume any liquid that is not in a can or a bottle. The reason being is because those water tanks are never cleaned, and they are disgusting.”
“Talk to a flight attendant. We rarely, rarely drink the coffee or tea. They come from the same water tank, and so when you’re drinking that coffee or tea…it’s absolutely disgusting.”
“So these little coffee guys, they are rarely cleaned unless they are broken. [The pitchers] are taken out and cleaned between flights, but the whole machine is never cleaned.”
She also suggests that parents who want to give their baby a bottle of hot water should ask for bottled water, put it in the baby’s bottle, and then dip the whole thing in hot water from these filthy pots.
This has brought up a lot of questions for me, like, parents feed babies bottles of hot water???
Some people are grateful for the info, but others are wondering why the stuff that is so filthy, like the pots of water, never get cleaned.
It technically isn’t Kamalani’s job to do that kind of cleaning, but it’s also weird to be serving something that you know if toxic and full of fecal matter from the nearby toilets. There are also a bunch of flight attendants in the comments who insist this isn’t actually normal:
Well, I’m bringing my own water bottle and a stack of wet wipes everywhere I go from now on no matter what, especially after watching this other Kamalani video. It will make you completely paranoid about touching anything on planes, too.
It’s actually very useful in the time of coronavirus, explaining all the crevices and surfaces most likely to covered in human waste.
I can’t believe I’ve put my phone in that seat pocket…
