If you fly often, you need to check out these secrets that only flight attendants know before buying your next airliner ticket.

Recently, flight attendants chimed in on Reddit to share secrets of their trade that most passengers do not know. While a few of their clues could save their own lives, others are downright disgusting. If you’ve ever checked a container, taken off your shoes on a plane, or been nasty to a flight attendant, get ready for a rude awakening.

1. That might not be water on the floor — it could be blood, vomit, or urine.

In the words of a former flight attendant, “The floor is so filthy it’s ridiculous. And that isn’t water you are feeling.” Especially for short flights, crews have about an hour to clean before passengers committee. At best, they do a quick vacuum and a once-over with a mop.

2. Sometimes fluid from dead bodies leaks on luggage.

Many people think that the last luggage checked is likely to be the first luggage to come through once you’ve landed, but as Huffington Post found out, that’s simply a myth. In reality, all luggage is sorted into bins, then weighed and distributed as handlers see fit.
