Here’s Proof That Naomi Campbell’s Pre-Flight Ritual Isn’t That Extreme At All
By Stephanie Ogbogu
Last week, Naomi Campbell shared her pre-flight airport routine with thousands of fans via her vlog on YouTube. In the video, the supermodel strolls through the airport doing what most common people do like shopping for snacks, people watching, and taking a few pre-flight selfies. The stand-out part of Naomi’s video is when she demonstrates how she obsessively sanitizes the aircraft before she gets settled in for her flight.
Naomi uses anti-bacterial wipes to clean everything her body would come in contact with, including armrests, tray tables, remote controls, screens and the seats themselves.
There are quite a few people who think Naomi’s housekeeping ritual is a bit excessive and possibly germaphobic. However, several recent viral videos prove that the cover girl has the right idea and we should all be taking notes.
Just this week, a video showing a passenger using her bare feet to scroll through the touch-screen in-flight entertainment aboard a Delta Airlines flight went viral.
The video sparked a lot of concern, rightfully, but it’s not the first of its kind.
Last year, a passenger felt it necessary to give themselves a full pedicure aboard their flight. The video has received over 288,000 views and thousands of comments on Instagram alone.
Let us not forget the time a female passenger aboard a Ural Airlines flight to Moscow from Turkey decided to dry her cotton underwear using the overhead air vents.
Some people have really disgusting habits, especially while traveling, so it’s actually not a bad idea to take sanitary precautions to protect yourself from ruining your vacation by falling ill.
Experts say surfaces like tray tables, seatbelts, armrests, and seat pockets on are germ hotspots, so wiping them down can reduce your risk of getting sick. Besides feet and underwear, your seat could be exposed to used tissues, dirty diapers, and even fecal matter. Washing your hands with soap and water along with staying hydrated while in the air will also reduce your risk of illness.
