Flight attendant explains why she’ll never drink the tea or coffee on a plane

Without a doubt, becoming a flight attendant can ultimately be one of the best – but also one of the most demanding – jobs in the world.

Have you ever wanted to go behind the scenes of working as an employee on a popular airline and flying the world?

Putting things into reality, TikTok star Cierra Mistt shared some of the little-known secrets of her job – and it’s bound to shock many.

The video – which has gone viral and has surpassed a whopping seven million views – left viewers conflicted after she admitted why she never drinks tea or coffee on a plane.

She captioned the post: “Secrets about pilots and flight attendants”.

“Unless we’re super desperate, we will not drink the coffee or tea that’s supplied on the plane,” she said.

“The water that we used for the coffee and the tea come from the same spot – and guess what? It never gets cleaned.

“And while the airline may tell passengers that they do regular water quality tests, we’re told that’s it about six to nine months for even one test on one plane to happen.

“They’re not going to clean out that tank unless they find something.”

Viewers were in disbelief over Cierra’s comments – whilst some were grateful for the tips others weren’t fully convinced on what the TikToker had to say.

However some fellow users did vow never to drink the tea and coffee again.

“Thanks for the water tip… definitely never drinking that damn water again,” replied one.

Another agreed, saying: “I won’t unless I absolutely HAVE to.. (aka those red eye flights)”
