Per the article, airplane tap water is really gross so don’t drink the coffee. Do I chance it as the airport-kiosk-coffee lobby pushing us to buy their cups or this legit?
No more coffee in flight?

My father-in-law is an American Airlines pilot and he definitely gave me that same advice when I first flew because he knows I’m a coffee addict.
In short, water for coffee/tea comes from the tap, and planes routinely fail water safety tests (hence the no drinking sign in the lav).
But wait – you have to boil the water to make coffee or tea. Doesn’t that kill the critters? And where is the ice from. Oh this is awful…
