Flight attendant Kat Kamalani thinks passengers should never ask for anything on a plane that has hot water

“I’ve been a flight attendant for almost 6 years!” Kat said. “You just learn these things while flying for your job”

“I would advise people to try to bring their own water and snacks if they are flying! Especially if they have a certain diet restriction.”

An aircraft flies to numerous destinations and may pump drinking water into its tanks from different sources at both domestic and international locations. The water quality onboard also depends on the safety of the equipment used to transfer the water, such as water cabinets, trucks, carts, and hoses.

Unhealthy water violates the federal government’s Aircraft Drinking Water Rule (ADWR), which was implemented in 2011 and requires airlines to provide passengers and flight crew with safe drinking water.

And it appears to be working. The number of ADWR violations by all airlines in 2018 was significantly less than the number in 2012, the first year after the ADWR was enacted. For major airlines, violations have decreased 69% (262 to 81), while violations among regional airlines have decreased 71% (351 to 103). However, some experts think the decrease might reflect a lack of enforcement by the EPA, which has issued few penalties in recent years.

A 2019 airline water study, for example, reported that many airlines continue to violate the ADWR.

And every now and then, water samples test positive for E. coli and coliform bacteria. JetBlue and Spirit — the major airlines that performed worst in the study — had a high number of ADWR violations.

“To be extra safe,” the researchers said the same thing Kat did in her TikTok: travelers should not drink coffee or tea on board, and “never drink any water on board that isn’t in a sealed bottle.” After using the bathroom, they also suggest travelers use hand-sanitizer.

Debora, Once past security, you're allowed to bring liquids on board over 3oz. . Most airports in the U.S. now have the filtered water stations where you can refill your water bottles and those are cleaned regularly (most of them have a log stickered to the machine showing when and by whom it was sanitized). Or if you're feeling carefree, you can always purchase a celebrity endorsed designer water at any of the airport for a mere $10.00 a pop! lol

Nap,

I bought a bottle of MtDew past security at Incheon airport in Seoul to drink on the plane. They wouldn’t let me bring it on the plane, even though I bought it past security. It made no sense.

Hugh,

That was probably more due to the fact that a grown adult was intending to drink that sh!te on their flight.

'...Bring their own water...' Trust me, I'm a professional - for almost 6 years. smh...

@izi Do you even look at these before you post them?

Btw: there's a word for 'flight attendant'. It's 'stewardess'.

Theodora,
Until Covid, I've traveled a few times a week for years. I bring my own, or ask for the sparkling. I find this post to be totally accurate. And the times I have let down my guard I have paid dearly.

Sh#t Knowledge. Coffee on airplanes always sucks because they keep heated all the time, burning even more the coffee. The taste is horrible! It is only good to wake you up.rs

Ever look inside a water main, or a hot water heater? Ever drink water from a mountain stream that has (gasp) mud on the bottom?

Matty,
You sound like one of those privileged snoots who's never had to do a hands on job and think those kinds of jobs are easy. They're not. Flight attendants are crazy busy and busting their humps and in any case are not provided the tools and devices needed to break down equipment or wash it, which couldn't be done anyway when the plane is being boarded or while in flight.
