The flight attendant says soft drinks foam when poured from a can, and the worst culprit is Diet Coke, meaning crew have to wait for the “bubbles to fall” before serving the drink
A stewardess has revealed why you should never order a Diet Coke on a commercial plane – because it foams too much.
The flight attendant, named Jet, explained that the cabin crew “cringes” every time a passenger orders one because the staff has to wait for the “bubbles to fall” before the drink can be served. reports the MEN.
In a blog, they write, “Soft drinks foam a lot more when poured from a can, and the worst culprit for this is Diet Coke — I literally have to sit and wait for the bubbles to fall before I can continue pouring.”
They continued, “Often, if all three passengers ask for Diet Coke, I’ll get them started, take three more drink orders, serve them, and then drink the Diet Coke.”
In a video showing how difficult pouring Diet Coke can be, cabin crew said, “What you can’t see is that if you turn the can upside down, the Diet Coke doesn’t come out, until you lift them up and tilt them slightly.
“That’s because the air pressure keeps the coke in the can. This makes it very easy to control the Diet Coke and reduces the risk of spills or overflows.”
So if you want to be friendly with the cabin crew, it might be worth ordering something else, e.g. e.g. tea or coffee. They will probably thank you.
