Think twice about ordering coffee or tea when you’re traveling by plane. According to a story published by Travel and Leisure, most flight attendants won’t drink a hot beverage made on the plane, because the water used comes from the tap. Water samples taken from planes have shown a high percentage of harmful bacteria; in fact, one in eight planes fails the Environmental Protection Agency’s standards for water safety. Instead, bring a reusable thermos and fill it up at the airport prior to boarding.
