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.

graycloud057: Because it goes good with vodka.😁

Kenneth Dunn: Captain Joe is sooooo cute

mrmiyagi5: to make bloody marys

Clay Taylor: Was anyone else thinking it was a leftover from a Bloody Mary fad that went out of style with the aircraft not dispensing liquor as easily? 😂

Lonnie Moore: What? No cease and desist demand from Coca Cola? Lol 😆

Aidan The Lover Boy O'Dwyer: Maybe that is an euro thing. My flights were always ginger ale all the way.

Jeffrey Pozo: Hey Joe are you Anjunafamily? Lol that track you got playing is one of my favorite deep house tracks. It is 16 Bit Lolitas "Beat Organ" Anjunadeep a great music label

Ryan Provonsha: I don't get nauseous on planes or anything, and I don't drink it because I can't taste anything, or to avoid going to the bathroom (I do like to sit by the window whenever I can). I drink tomato juice on planes because I know the vitamins vegetables have are in there. If people are sick on the plane, I feel like it will give me a better chance of fighting off their germs. And from all I can tell, this strategy usually works!

Lemon: YOU SPELLED BOARD WRONG YOU SPELLED BORD AHHHH
pls kill meh

Doc Dat: It’s a free small meal ^*

searchfortech: Yeah the sence topic is totally right,but from the other hand tomato juice is almost the only more or less healthy thing to drink there. What is the choice: tropical juices with nothing good inside,coca-cola, alcohol, just water or hot drinks. Yeah, tomato is the choice

Bernhard Ehm: as far as i remember tomato juice wasn´t always so popular... i remember the times where bloody mary was the choice in the first place ;)

FlightSimDev: The scenery used in simulators how accurate is it and how is it made, can you do a video on this please

Kristijan Grdjan: The only time I take the tomato juice (and it is always in the plane) is at the morning flight when alcohol is not served!

Charles Johnson: It´s so easy why TJ is popular.
One idiot starts with it and hundert idiots follow him.
No matter what that moron in front of me ordered, I never drank TJ, EVER!!
Not at home, not on a bus, not on a train not on an airplane!
I drink lots of water, coke zero if available and a double Baileys on the rocks before taking a nap.
Case closed!

MyTech: Tomatoes are cheap, easier to juice with old technologies, and I recall some old recording of either Linburgh or Amelia Earhart saying they drank tomato juice during their long flights.
BTW tomatoes are American in origin.

gaming and phoning source rocks: Joe can u help me with the meaning of transition altitude??

Edward Nicasio: Hey captain Joe I wanted to ask what studies do you need to go through to become a pilot... Can you just get your PPL and CPL together?

Leila Saleh: I felt personality attacked when he said "or as Americans would say TO-MAY-TO".
