During your time spent at the airport, there are plenty of things on your mind. Among them — "I hope I don't miss my flight", "How much longer until boarding" and "Fingers crossed the screaming baby next to me has a seat at the back of the plane".
But one thing that rarely crosses your mind — unless you're a self-proclaimed germaphobe — is how dirty is this airport. Well, a study by Texas-based company, Insurance Quotes, recently found that the answer is very, very dirty — but some spots more so than others.
Insurance Quotes ran 18 tests across six surfaces inside of three major U.S. airports and airline flights. The dirtiest spot? The airport's self check-in kiosks. One kiosk at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport recorded an astonishing 1 million+ colony-forming units (bacteria and fungal cells, to you and I). Yikes.
