For many, old shorts are the perfect thing to wear at the airport. They are comfortable, practical and will adapt perfectly to the warmer climate of our destination.
But a flight attendant has revealed that there are some things we should avoid on flights – one of them is shorts, another rests your head on the window, reports The Star.

The advice that might get you squirming, came from a flight attendant on TikTok, @tommycimato, who shared some hygiene and health tips for passengers.
Tommy said, “Don’t fall asleep and lean your head against the window.
“You are not the only one who has done this and you have no idea how many people or children have wiped their hands or other things all over the window. “
The “or other things” is particularly frightening.
Tommy didn’t stop there, “Don’t wear or try to wear shorts when you’re on a plane.
“It’s the same as the window – you never know how clean it will be, so if you have pants on you will have fewer germs. “
Tommy’s advice was extremely germ-focused, which may be helpful for travelers concerned about catching Covid in the air.

“Never touch the flush button with your bare hands. It’s honestly just super unsanitary and pretty gross, so when you flush the toilet use a towel or handkerchief that’s in the toilet, ”he said.
Tommy was also keen to encourage passengers to stay hydrated and not be afraid to ask the cabin crew if you need help or assistance.
