  The 3 Longest Flights In The World Are Not For The Faint Of Heart <p>If you really hate layovers, these are the flights for you.</p>Airlines are constantly outdoing each other for the longest commercial passenger flight in the world, and the lineup changes frequently as carriers announce new routes or change existing ones.

Airline chow is infamous for being inedible, but one beverage is worse, according to an industry insider.“ Don ’ t drink the coffee on airplanes . It’s the same potable water that goes through the bathroom system,” an. unidentified flight attendant “for a major American airline” revealed to Vice.com.

“Don’t drink the coffee on airplanes. It’s the same potable water that goes through the bathroom system,” an unidentified flight attendant “for a major American airline” revealed to Vice.com.

“We recently had a test for E. coli in our water and it didn’t pass, and then maintenance came on and hit a couple buttons and it passed,” the flight attendant added. “So, avoid any hot water or tea. Bottled and ice is fine, of course.”

That said, sipping bottled water could lead you to use the plane’s bathrooms, which the anonymous stew called “the most disgusting places on the planet.”

“There’s no way these people act this way in their normal lives,” the source added. “But they get on a plane and go, ‘Cool, I’ll just pee all over the floor and dump my peanuts right on the ground.’”

Airline pilot speak: Codes pilots use and why they talk the way they do

  Airline pilot speak: Codes pilots use and why they talk the way they do In the cockpit there's a special language that the pilot and co-pilot use which makes no sense to the general flying public. "We're gonna be in the Hudson."And with those final words before contact was lost, Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger landed his US Airways Airbus A320 on New York City's Hudson River in January 2009, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew.The tape of the conversation between Sully and the operator at New York Tracon, which controls air traffic in and around New York City, is instructive.

Airline meals are known for not being good But the beverages are worse, according to industry insiders Flight attendants are warning passengers about the coffee “ Don ’ t drink the coffee on airplanes .

Flight attendants have said they stay away from non-bottled water on airplanes and drinks that use it, like coffee and tea, because the water can be stored in dirty tanks. While an anonymous flight attendant told a Business Insider editor that soda cans on airplanes tend to be dirty

But if flight attendants catch you doing something annoying, being too demanding or needy, they have their ways to get revenge, the “sky mole” (Vice’s term) confessed. “Usually, I spend the majority of my time just ignoring them.”

The source also says that contrary to what many believe, traveling all the time for work is not so cool. “It’s not nearly as glamorous as people let on,” the stew said, “but you figure that out pretty quickly.”

Asked about the sky mole’s in-flight coffee warning, Alison McAfee, spokesperson for the industry group Airlines for America, said that she couldn’t speak to this particular remark.

“However, what we can say is that the safety of our passengers and crew remain the airlines' primary focus, which includes the provision of clean drinking water,” she told the Daily News.

“The airline industry is subject to the Aircraft Drinking Water Rule,” she added, “which requires rigorous processes to ensure onboard water systems are regularly disinfected and that clean drinking water is available.”
