There is bacteria and mold on everything, everywhere. That's why we have an immune system. Yes, most planes are gross but it is unrealistic to think we can sanitize planes completely between flights. People would be complaining about the time being taken to do it.

You people realize your exposed to this stuff every single day? And its part of what keeps your immune system strong to fight off the more serious viruses. This show is making a mountain out of a mole hill.

You have to be the absolute lowest kind of human being to leave a used tampon into the seat pocket. A F..ING USED TAMPON!!!!

5:35 Did they all bring sunglasses when they had the interview on the roof, or were they all given sunglasses? Either way, I'm finding it way funnier than it actually is.

I'm NOT surprised that the headrest is the dirtiest because EVERY TIME someone stands up they grab the headrest in from of them and when they walk down the aisle, they touch the headrests AFTER they opened/closed the restroom door. I get upset when someone grabs my headrest because most likely their hands aren't that clean.

Antibacterial wipes to create more and more and more waste.

Wearing face masks helps A LOT! Thats why so many Japanese people wear them in Tokyo. not due to air pollution but to shield themselves from colds and flus. I always wear them when I do international flights now.

Also many people don't wash their hands! ickkkk!bring a pair of disposable medical gloves before you use anti bacterial wipes or you'll be adding that bacteria on your hands.
