Where Germs lurk on Planes.
Having had a good 5 days in Sydney I ended up on antibiotics this weekend with an Upper respiratory staph infection, quite common for plane travellers to end up with bad colds/flu after plane travel so never having happened to me before decided to look up why. Air filtration is good but looks like the real danger is from direct contact with different surfaces.
Thinking about it, how many of us travelling even think of wiping down our tray or personal touch video screen and controls when we get to our seat or that the seat pocket we put our book in could give us an infection?

next time I fly I am going to be prepared taking some alcohol wipes with me.
