Airplanes have a bad rep for being disease incubators. Passengers have been advised to pick window seats and turn on their overhead air vent to avoid catching germs, while some even wear surgical masks during flights. But planes aren’t necessarily more germ-ridden as other places we spend our time, according to a recent study. One of the study's authors is School of Mathematics Professor Howie Weiss.
