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.

Lemon End Gaming l: YOU SPELLED BOARD WRONG YOU SPELLED BORD AHHHH
pls kill meh

Doc Dat: It’s a free small meal ^*

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".

Nicholas Littlejohn: It's healthier than soda.

Brewed Awakening: While being served a meal during flight, I noticed a small bowl of tomatoes turned from red to super red after they served the salad right next to it. I think it was because they saw a salad dressing.

Paola Isabel Hadem: One explanation can be, that when you are in a such high place, like in a plane, your body is confrontated with radioactivity and this makes your body more acid and every sweet drink with gas or black tea or coffee makes it even more acid, but tomato juice is the only drink, which has basic nutritions and which has antioxidants and this can make your body come into a good ph level. So instinctivly people order more tomato juice in the air instead on the earth, because the body needs more antioxidans. This might be an explanation, but of course I am not sure... ;-)

Alex ILIE: Hey I was just wondering the same thing today. Actually I even made a video about it. My first one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e1Ea7_7wbQ

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.
