“They’re dirtier than toilets, they’re dirtier than seat cushions, and they’re dirtier than trays,” she said in a clip that has had more than 3,000 likes.
“Let me tell you why.”
She goes on to say that seat pockets “never get cleaned.”
“Unless someone throws up or there’s something smelly or sticky in there, it doesn’t get cleaned up. All the cleaners do is come in and take out the trash,” he explained.
“So all those germs have accumulated and there’s no regular cleaning of those surfaces, whereas bathrooms are regularly cleaned and disinfected.”

Her followers were understandably upset, with one person even sharing, “This is so true! I once saw a parent put a used diaper in the back pocket of the seat.”
Something the flight crew member said is actually a “crowd favorite.”
Others responded with horror.
“I usually put my phone in there!” it was a comment.
“Never touch it again,” said another, while a third wrote: “I don’t wear them. I will always see people with their feet in them.”
