An employee of a major American airline who wished to remain anonymous, told The Daily Mail about why she does not advise anyone to order coffee or tea during the flight.

The thing is that the water on which coffee is prepared is exactly the same as used in toilets for washing and washing hands. Initially, it is considered to be drinking and relatively harmless, but, according to a flight attendant, tests for the content of Escherichia coli in this water showed positive results. Including, if the water is hot - low cabin pressure means boiling at lower temperatures than on the ground (by the way, that's why coffee and tea on board are so tasteless).

A spokesman for the airline claims that the chances of becoming a victim of infection are zero, since the system has a special design that does not allow dirty water to “reach” the drinker on board.

But the stewardess is not the first who does not recommend drinking coffee in flight.

Back in 2012, the US Environmental Protection Agency found that in 12% of cases, the water on board commercial airline aircraft contained a dangerous amount of E. coli bacteria. Employees of other airlines said in an interview that the water tanks on airplanes are cleaned only once every 6-12 months.
