Why You Should Think Twice Before Ordering Coffee or Tea on a Plane

You may want to think twice before you order that coffee or tea on a plane.

The water for tea and coffee comes from the tap, not from a bottle, while in flight. And that water could be downright disgusting.

According to a 2004 EPA sample of 158 planes, 13 percent contained coliform. Two of the airplanes were found to have dangerous E.coli in the water.

An additional EPA study found that one in every eight planes fails the agency’s standards for water safety.
