No More In-Flight Coffee (or Tea)

There have been several articles about tea and coffee on flights. It is rare, even more so in economy class, that beverages served on long-haul flights are any better than the worst microwave-reheated service-station dishwater. Furthermore, it has been scientifically proven that these hot drinks kindly offered by the world’s airlines contain a high concentration of pathogens. It might be best to abstain from in-flight tea and coffee. For those who are bolder or past masters of quibbling, should your stewardess, your seat neighbour, or your own clumsiness scald some part of your body with one or other of these drinks, you might like to know that the fault always, whatever the circumstances, lies with the airline from the moment it is airborne above the vast European landmass.
