Blankets and pillows
The next hot spots for the bacteria are blankets and pillows. They are not washed after every flight. The number of passengers has used them before you. I am sure that you won’t like to cuddle in a blanket in which somebody has sneezed. Try to avoid them. When you know that you are on a long-haul journey you will need a blanket or pillow.

Lavatory flush button
