On flights I love having the window seat, you get to look out, you control the shade, but... there might be one negative to having the window seat.
A flight attendant gave a tip in Reader's Digest of "22 Things You Should Never Do On An Airplane" that has me wanting to Lysol the window as soon as I get to my seat. The flight attendant is Linda Ferguson, who worked as part of a cabin crew for 24 years, and she shared that you shouldn’t rest your head against a plane window because you don't know how many people have turned to sneeze, cough, or done who knows what to that window during flights that came before yours, according to BroBible. Linda also had this to say about it, “I see plenty of people carry Lysol wipes with them that will wipe the area around their seat. If there was a backlight and they could light up a plane with all the germs, I think it would petrify everybody. My rule of thumb, and I never get sick, is I never put my hands in my mouth or near my face.”
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to shower.
