When you board a flight, do you ever wonder how clean it really is? From the seat belts and tray tables, to bathrooms, and blankets, we swab and test three major airlines — Air Canada, WestJet and Porter. And we go beyond the surface to check the air quality too.

"we didnt get much training on how to clean the airplane" you dont get training on how to clean your house too, does that mean that your house is drity too? :)

Last time I saw cleaning crew go in @ airport they where 99% blacks or muslims. Job not good enough for whites? No. I think the problem we have here is salary is to low for whites to do this. Our own western economies ( Liberalism) created this by looking down and paying less and less ( also less time ) for lower working class jobs, while these people are the backbone of society. It used to be different in the 50/60s...

They hardly ever wash seat covers unless they are soiled to the point of being soaked. They put these thin sheets of matrial over the headrest in an attempt to compensate. On older planes, the seats were made of a material that could be wiped down... smh. This is all so disgusting.

I think they should have compared their tests to bacteria growing on surfaces at home. I don't think our home are much cleaner. I don't like how this is only going to create more germophobes

They never said anything about the restroom. Because you know somebody’s going to go in there maybe do a little fun don’t know maybe sneeze and not clean up after themselves. It makes you really wonder who has the best airline for cleanliness and who really has the worst airline for cleanliness.

Please test Delta, American Airlines, and United Airlines

Everytime somebody kick my seat from the back, I would stay away from the seat back, and sleep like a horse, you know, without extra support on my upper body, and tell myself I have avoided the danger of getting germs on my head or neck, looks like I won!

If people are paying 10 times more for their fare, I am sure it would be much cleaner lol 😂

🤢😱 bringing so much anti bacterial wipes on my next flight. And a minispray for the headrest.

They aren't even wearing gloves. If anything, their hands were the filthiest. #dirtyhandjobs
