RE: Taking Water Onboard - An Idea

Quoting YULWinterSkies (Reply 33):
Water in the lavatories on aircraft is NOT potable water,

The water in the lavs is always supplied by the aircraft's potable water system. That is the exact same water that goes into the galleys.
(Ref: Any AMM, chapter 38)

Is it a good idea to drink it? = NO yuck

he washed his teeth with Evian

In some countries, until you adjust to the local water, this can be a wise choice.

does anyone else remember the world before everyone had to have a bottle of water with them twentyfour hours a day? i'm not trying to get nostalgic here folks, but it's really not that big of a deal, or inconvience to not be able to take one on.
United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?

I can only speak for myself, but when flying longhaul in a full Y cabin, I cannot count on the FAs being able to get me the quantity of water I prefer to avoid dehydration and arrived ready to go to work.

Sounds like a job for that "Dirty Jobs" show!

Oh no. There's nothing dirty about it at all, Quite a clean job. I still wouldn't drink it. After doing that job and chatting with my colleagues, I went home and sent an email to family/friends advising them never to drink the water on an aircraft, not even the tea/coffee.

I don't know about other airlines, but CO and NW use bottled water when doing a beverage service. Not sure about the coffee though!
