A flight attendant explains why it’s never a good idea to wear shorts or lean your head on the jet window.
A FLIGHT ATTENDANT has warned the perils of resting your head on a window or wearing shorts on a plane.
Tommy Cimato routinely posts on TikTok about what it’s like to work on an airplane. He often gives passengers advice, with some of his most recent advice astonishing travelers when he warned against two typical occurrences: wearing shorts on a flight and putting your head on the window.
“Do not fall asleep or put your head on the window,” Mr Cimato advises in the video.
“You are not the only one who has done that, and you have no idea how many individuals or children have wiped their hands or other things all over the window.” In the age of the coronavirus, germs are a major concern for travelers.
The flight attendant delivered a similar warning about wearing shorts on an airplane, which is guaranteed to remain in the minds of individuals who are accustomed to having their legs out.
“Don’t, or at least try not to, wear shorts on an airplane,” he advised.
Mr Cimato’s other top suggestions for travellers include how to avoid germs in the bathroom, staying hydrated, and what to do if you become sick.
“Never touch the flush button with your bare hands,” he said. It’s just unsanitary and unpleasant, so when you flush, use a napkin or tissue from the toilet.
“Don’t forget to stay hydrated. Keep yourself hydrated. Keep in mind that you should have roughly 16 ounces for each flight you take.” He also recommends passengers to seek the attention of the cabin crew if necessary.
“Don’t be scared to tell a flight attendant if you’re feeling sick,” he warned. So, if you need food, water, or an air sickness bag, please let us know.” Many people who commented on TikTok questioned his suggestion, claiming that if the plane was sanitized between trips, there would be no need for what he suggested.
Others on TikTok have stated that they will do it on purpose. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
