A COUPLE have revealed why they take a strange item on planes every time they fly.
Traveling by plane can be a messy experience when snack wrappers and empty soda bottles pile up.
However, with just a 1p item, husband and wife team Brian and Amanda (@bdfagan) are able to keep their seats clean and tidy, making life easier for both the flight crew and themselves.
In a video on Tiktok, the pair revealed that they take a dog poop bag on board flights, meaning they effectively have their own trash can right between their seats.
Amanda untangles the bag and ties it to the tray table, giving the duo hands-free access when needed.
The bags are available from Waitrose for just £1.10 for 100, making them just 1.1p per bag.
The couple captioned the video, “I don’t have a dog but I take these everywhere.”
One Tiktok user was very impressed with the idea and just said, “So smart!”
The poop bags are far from the only unusual item people take with them when they travel.
For example, Points Guy writer Ashley Kosciolek never flies without a roll of duct tape.
While she said she knew it sounded “suspicious,” she explained why it works.
She told Express.co.uk: “Two years ago I was traveling home for Thanksgiving and decided to check my hard shell carry-on luggage at the gate.
“When I picked it up at the end of the flight, it was torn in two places and had a huge hole on top.
“Luckily I had a roll of duct tape inside so I patched it up for the duration of my trip.”
Elsewhere, Debbie, who works as an in-flight services manager for Air New Zealand, always flies with a silk pillowcase.
She admitted to the New Zealand Herald that it “sounds a bit luxurious”.
However, she uses the pillowcase to cover the pillows provided on the plane, which are often made of cheap material.
Meanwhile, these are the weirdest things you can take on a flight if you really want to.
And those are some of the weirdest things being banned from the cabin.
