Why is tomato juice so popular on bord an airplane? / explained by CAPTAIN JOE

Tomato juice! Todays question is a classic passenger question :) Sent in by youtube Follower "Sandra S.“: "Joe, why is Tomato juice so popular on airplanes?" That is a great question and I had do some weird research to find an adequte answer. Unfortunately there is not just one answer when it comes to tomato juice on board an airplane. A survey has found out that many passengers order the aromatic red drink because they say it calms their stomace during the flight, cause many passengers get nauseous as soon as the enter the plane. Another source said that it´s just a "thing" like popcorn at the cinema. The cinema is mostly probably the only place where popcorn seems to be the "thing" to eat during a movie and you don´t need cutlery for it. So comes the airplane with tomato juice. Another said that a lot of passengers drink the red vegatable drink cause many airlines don´t serve meals anymore, so they drink the juice instead cause it tastes like cold tomato soup and satisfys like an entire meal. But the statement that really caught my attention, is the reduction in salt tastyness up in the air. Scientist have found out that with increasing cabin altitude your taste sense, especially the on responsible for salt, decrease dramatically. They´ve tested on volenteers who drank tomate juice on ground, and then put them into a pressure chamber to simulate flight conditions, and again let them drink tomato juice, and nearly every test person was claiming that the juice tasted poor in flavour, but adding a teaspoon of salt, made the juice taste as if they were on ground. Similar with all the hot meals on board a plane, cooks use up to 30% more salt when preparing the meal due to the loss in salt taste with increasing cabin altitude. This is my personal explantion and answer to this question, but it still remains a myth if you ask me. Why was it tomato juice in the first place, not carotte juice or any other vegatable drink. One thing for sure, it´s definitely healthier to than a glass of coke. So I hope I´ve answered another aviation-related quesiton for you, this was definitely a fun one to answer, so if you want to see more videos like this, subscribe my channel, give me thumbs up and spread the word.
