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.

GamerFTW 184: a pilot being a passenger on an airplane.
i thought u get kinda like vacation when you land in a new destination

BrainsON: On bord

gemini star: Astronauts often comment that their sense of taste and smell us reduce when in space also. So they often use extra sauce , particularly spicy sauces. (Also the surface tension holds the food on the spoon)

Reise taking flight: I stick with my Ginger ale and pretzels. It’s just something I do. And on the ground at the gate waiting for my flight it’s usually a redbull and gummy bears.

Untold Secrets: You did not ask with your viewers why do they like tomato juice on the plane!!!!
Well, I would like to tell ... when I feel bloated which is very often I liked to have tomato juice bcoz having this juice releases all the air from my abdomen without doing any walking or other exercise 😝

Shankar S R: Captain 👨‍✈️Joe as charming as ever saves the day! 😊

vinkuu: Tomatoes contain natural MSG, a flavour enhancer.

Dan Hughes: Tomato juice is a standard bar item. It's mostly just used in Bloody Marys. Adults drinking soft drinks is a fairly new phenomimom. Most long haul flights will also carry Tonic Water, Ginger Ale and Orange Juice (in addition to soda) for the same reason.

wrushbo: Because it goes fantastic with Vodka and Lime....

Yaamen HUSKY: Hi captain Joe , you wear a corpse in plane ? It's true? ?? (Excuse me for my English) im the new follower ^-^(no make video for this please )

Tuton25: I drink coffee on long flights and go to the bathroom quite often, but that's why I almost always try and book an aisle seat

Piacco2706: I always drink tomato juice on flights and i mostly eat popcorn at the cinema, but I also drink tomato juice at home, just because I like it. :D

anton notna: Love the fact, that I understand his English.

S0l0M0N004: Tumaaaàaaatooooooo

JP's Workshop: I prefer a G&T when I fly

NeOn: Haha!! I never would have thought about this! LOL!

Amir H Kioumars: Joe, you are super great. I really love your videos. You explain things very nice, clear and simple. Keep it up. You are amazing. Thank you for all your hard work.

Daniel Smith: Probably a hangover from it being stocked in the old days of aviation when you dressed up to fly and drank cocktails on board to mix a classic Bloody Mary hence there is usually Worcester sauce and tabasco on the trolly with the tomato juice

Giant Z: In some parts of America we pronounce tomato "maiter"

Francisco Cascales: I think the reason why the sense of taste is worse at altitude is because the meal served in planes is tasteless as hell, just try the same food at sea level and I bet the taste will be as bad. Try a good Jamon Serrano Pata Negra de Jabugo at 10.000 feet and then we talk. I promise to send you a package if you want to do the test Joe
