    Thanks for posting this article, Sammich!

    FWIW, it's a good policy to never drink the water from an airplane lavatory sink, regardless of the airline. If you assume that the airplane's water is always non-potable (i.e., not drinkable) you will never be disappointed, and will avoid one almost-sure source of bacteria-laden drinking water!

    Yeah I have never drank from an airplane lav sink before...always bottled water or boiled.

    Plus IIRC I remember someone saying that the water tank is right beside the waste tank :confused::rolleyes:
