For those of you who feel like an airplane is a giant petri dish, fear not! There are several measures you can take to prevent contracting a cold or flu.
So why are you about 113 times more likely to come down with a virus on an airplane than in your daily life? The main culprits are the large number of people in extra close quarters and the low cabin humidity on-board your flight.
