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.

How They Fly: රස අඩු උඩු ගුවන...
ඔබ ගුවන් යානයක ගමන් කර ඇත්නම් පහත විස්තර කර ඇති සංසිද්ධිය ඔබටත් හුරු ඇති බවට නම් සැක නැත.
සාමාන්‍යයෙන් ගුවන් ගමනකදී මගීන් හට ආහාර සැපයෙන්නේ උස අඩි 30,000 න් පමණ පසු බව අපි කවුරුත් දන්නා කරුණකි. නමුත් මෙලෙස අහාර ගැනීමේදී එම අහාර වල යම් රසෙන් අඩු බවක් හෝ යම් අවරපදමක් ඇති බව ඔබට දැනී තිබෙනවාද? එසේ නම් එයට හේතුව මෙයයි.
මිනිසාට සුවඳ සහ රස දැනෙන්නේ නහසයේ සහ මුඛය තුල ඇති රසාංකුර(Taste Buds) වල උපකාරයෙනි. විවිධ ගන්ධයන්ගෙන් හා විවිධ රස වලින් මෙම රසාංකුර උත්තේජනය වන අතර එමගින් අපට මෙම ගන්ධයන් හා රසයන් වින්දනය කල හැක. නමුත් අඩි 30,000 ක පමණ ඉහළ අහසේදී මෙම රසාංකුර වල සංවේදීතාවය 30% කින් පමණ අඩු වෙයි. මෙම හේතුව නිසාවෙන් ඉහළ අහසේදී යම් ආහාරයක් ගැනීමේදී එම ආහාරය නිවැරදිව පිළියෙළ කර තිබුනද එම ආහාරයේ යම් වෙනසක් ගුවන් මගීන් හට දැනෙයි.
මෙලෙස රසාංකුර වල සංවේදීතාවය අඩු වීමට බලපාන ප්‍රධානතම හේතුව වන්නේ ගුවන් යානයේ පීඩනයට ලක් කරන ලද(pressurized) බද තුල පවතින තරමක අඩු පීඩනය සහ ඉතා අඩු ආර්ද්‍රතාවයයි(Humidity). මෙහි ආර්ද්‍රතාවය 12% ක පමණ ඉතා අඩු අගයක් ගන්නා අතර එම අගය බොහෝ කාන්තාර වල ආර්ද්‍රතාවයටත්(වියළි බව) වඩා අඩුය.

David J: The reason I don't drink coffee on a long flight for example L.A. to Hong Kong is because I want to sleep. It's not fun to be totally awake and staring at the tops of clouds unable to move around after you've seen all the movies on the airplay tv.

Magen Is back!!: With not being able to taste salt properly, so that's why pringles don't taste right.

Nour Fraezer: Joe i am inspired by your videos a lot and i have changed my dream from a nurse into a pilot but the problem is that i am Syrian and i have no chance to work as a pilot in sweden so is it possible for me to be graduated from sweden and work in another place and how good is the Swedish certificate ranking 😊

Big Fat Al: A Tomato is officially a fruit😊

Ta Yet: I like drinking tomato juice because it isn't sweet and refreshes my sense of taste and smell. I don't like to not be able to taste or smell and it happens quite frequently on flights. At the same time you couldn't get me to drink tomatoe Juice on the ground. Down here it tastes too intents and tart.

I also thought it came from people ordering bloody marys on the flight, and after AA people started ordering it w/out the alc.
