Why you should NEVER wear shorts on a plane, according to a flight attendant

The ideal outfit for travelling on a plane can make all the difference for the journey.

On the one hand, you want to be comfy for the journey, but not so comfy that you look like a total slob – and you often want to be ready for hot weather at the other end of the flight.

So with this in mind, it's hardly surprising that we often settle on a sweatshirt and a pair of shorts.

But TikTok user Tommy Cimato has warned against bottoms that end above the knee in a viral video, because the chairs aren't regularly cleaned.

He said: "Don't or try not to wear shorts when you're on an aeroplane.

"You never know how clean it's gonna be, so if you have pants [trousers], you're going have less germs."

As tempting as it is, Tommy also warned viewers not to lean against windows.

He said: "Do not fall asleep or lean your head on the window.

"You are not the only that has done that and you don't know how many people or children have wiped their hands or other things all over the window."

Then, as if aeroplane bathrooms didn't stress us out enough, the flight attendant also recommended not pushing the flush button with bare hands.

You never know how clean it's gonna be, so if you have pants, you're gonna have less germs.

He said: "It's honestly just super unsanitary and pretty gross, so when you flush, use a napkin or tissue that's in the lavatory."

While you're engrossed in a movie or a good book, it can be easy to forget to drink water throughout the flight – and the attendant was quick to stress just how important it is to stay hydrated.

"Don't forget to drink water," he said. "You wanna have about 16oz for every flight you go on, so keep that in mind."

Finally, Tommy urged passengers not to be shy about asking attendants for help if they need it.

He added: "Let a flight attendant know if you're feeling sick. So if you need food, water, or an air sickness bag, please feel free to let us know."
