Flying has long ceased to be a luxury adventure and has become a common necessity, but many of us still know very little about this type of travel.

Here are some important and interesting facts about air transport. Where is the dirtiest place in the cabin, why it is always so cold there, at what time of day it is better to fly and why tomato juice is tastier in flight than on the ground.

1. Folding table - one of the dirtiest places on the plane

Microbiologists consider folding tables in front of chairs - one of the most unhygienic places on the plane. According to the stewardesses, passengers use the tables not only for food: they read, entertain children, pile up to sleep. It is not a fact that after each flight they are wiped thoroughly enough, so having a disinfectant is always a good idea.

Among other dirty places on the plane, of course, is the toilet. Especially - the drain button.

2. But the air in the cabin is not so dirty

Some passengers are concerned about how clean the air is that a large number of people spend several hours in a cramped room.

There is nothing to worry about here, because the plane is equipped with a well-thought-out air supply system. It collects air overboard, but can not supply it in this form - at a height of too little oxygen. The system compresses the air with the help of compressors, thereby increasing the density of oxygen. At the same time, the air temperature is equalized to comfortable human values.

The only downside to such "stressful" air is that it is too dry. Therefore, some people during the flight experience constant thirst and dryness of the mucous membranes.

3. Tomato juice in flight does not taste like on the ground

Even those who do not like tomato juice, it is worth trying it on the plane - experienced travelers say that it is tastier there. This can be considered a popular myth, but researchers from the American Psychological Association have found an explanation. The fact is that during the flight due to monotonous noise, pressure changes dull the sensitivity of taste buds. Therefore, regular food can be fresh. Tomato juice has a pronounced taste, which is so attractive to passengers. Some people even think that it is getting sweeter, although some claim that they do not feel any change at all.

4. It is better to fly early in the day

If you want to arrive without delay, try to book a flight at an earlier time of day. In most cases, the later a day is scheduled to depart, the more likely it is to be delayed or canceled. Of course, it is impossible to predict 100% weather conditions and other accidents, but in the first half of the day you have a much better chance of a quick takeoff.

5. The aircraft is specially maintained cool temperature

Those who complain that it is constantly freezing on the plane should know that it is for our own good. The cool temperature in the cabin is maintained specifically. The fact is that during the flight the pressure increases, and if you add heat to it, the body's cells will not be able to saturate with oxygen, causing the person to lose consciousness from hypoxia. The cold temperature allows not to provoke this condition.

6. The places near the wings of the plane are the quietest

You probably already know that the seats in the tail of the plane are the safest. But if it is more important for you to avoid excessive shaking, sit closer to the wings: it is calmest. Pilots are calm about turbulence and call for it to be taken as a normal part of flight. However, if you are very uncomfortable with "air bumps", try flying in the morning or evening. At this time, the air is not as hot as during the day, and turbulence is likely to be less.

7. It is better to check in for a flight among the latter

Those who have luggage should not rush to be the first in line to check in for a flight. When you drop off luggage among the last, it gets on the last cart and is loaded at the very end. This makes it the first to unload, so on arrival you will be one of the first to leave the baggage claim area.

8. The pilot does not hear applause in the cabin

The tradition, which unknowingly continues to be followed by many air passengers, makes no sense. The pilots in the cockpit do not hear your gratitude, so the people in the cabin look at this moment as strange as possible. For some reason it never occurs to anyone to clap their hands when a train arrives at the final station or a bus approaches your stop?

This spicy taste is intensely felt in the tomato juice, which is served on airplanes, not on the ground. In addition, the sweet and salty flavour of tomato juice is enhanced by more spices than usual for consumption on airplanes. Other flavors, such as cardamom and lemongrass, have a stronger effect on our taste buds during air travel. That's the reason why tomato juice in flight does not taste like on the ground.
