A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the dirtiest part of the plane that everyone uses – and it isn't the toilet.
The flight attendant who goes by the name Flightbae.B on TikTok explained the gross secret in her latest video.

She explained: "Did you know that seatback pockets are actually the dirtiest surface on the aircraft?
"They're dirtier than the lavatories, they're dirtier than the seat cushion, and they're dirtier than the tray tables. Let me tell you why.
"It's because they are never cleaned".

The video has been watched more than 20,000 times.
