Don't Drink the Water

Well...now I know that at least on Alaska the cup of coffee isn't likely to kill me.

And instead of washing hands in the airplane's bathroom, the study encourages passengers to use hand sanitizer.
Who knew Q400's were so ahead of the times!

Gives a new meaning to Pee D B if you drink the coffee before takeoff.

I think there are multiple articles out on the web talking about the limited sanitation for the water holding tanks used for onboard water, and drinking with that is YMMV.

I once read somewhere depending on the plan the port for empty lavatories is right next to the port for filling the water, hmm.

Anyways it is water ( bottled ), wine/beer, club-soda only for this flyer, and I'm the last person to be a germ phobe.
