“The number of ADWR violations by all airlines in 2018 was significantly less than the number in 2012, the first year after the ADWR was enacted. For major airlines, violations have decreased 69% (262 to 81), while violations among regional airlines have decreased 71% (351 to 103). However, the decrease might reflect a lack of enforcement by the EPA, which has issued few penalties in recent years” (Hunter College NYC/Diet Detective, p.1, 2019).Results The study rated the water quality of airline companies from 0-5 (0 being the lowest, 5 being the highest) based on criteria including but not limited to “fleet size, ADWR violations, positive E. coli and coliform water sample reports and cooperation in providing answers to water-quality questions” (Hunter College NYC/Diet Detective, p.1, 2019). A score of 3.0 or higher suggests the airline offers rather clean and safe water for human consumption.

How can you protect yourself on board?
It is suggested that while on board an aircraft, do NOT drink water that isn’t from a sealed bottle or container (per TSA regulations, you cannot bring your own bottles filled with liquid that are more than 3.4 oz in your carry-on baggage through security, but you can buy bottled water in the shops afterwards) (TSA, p.1), do not order coffee or tea during flight refreshments, and bring your own hand sanitizer to use instead of washing your hands in the restroom.
