A FLIGHT attendant has revealed five things you should never do on an airplane.

Tommy Cimato, a flight attendant from Arizona in America, has shared a list of dos and donts for travellers – and they might surprise you.

Top of the list of advice, shared on TikTok, was to never lean on windows.

Tommy said because you don't know who he touched the window previously, it is best to avoid it.

He added: "You don't know how many people or children have wiped their hands or other things all over the window."

Tommy also advises not touching the button or level to flush the toilet.

He said: "It's pretty gross, so when you flush, use a napkin or a tissue that's in the lavatory."

The flight attendant also reminds his viewers about the importance of water, especially on long-haul flights, in his next tip.

He said: "Stay hydrated. You want to have about 16 ounces (470ml) for every flight that you go on."

The experienced flight attendant also stressed the importance of informing staff if you are not feeling well and not keeping it to yourself. He says attendants are "there to help".

And finally in one of the stranger tips, Tommy advises people to not wear shorts on planes as "you don't know how clean" the plane is.

He added: "If you have pants, you're going to have less germs."

Airline staff have previously taken to TikTok to show how unclean some planes can be.

Tommy's Tiktok has received more than 653,000 likes and many comments.
