Travel expert Megan Gudgeon has uncovered several secrets that airlines have been hiding. Having taken more than 300 flights over the past decades, she has learned some little-known facts about airplanes.

Why are there tiny holes in the windows, which part of the plane is the dirtiest, and can you open the door during the flight? The woman shared all this on her YouTube channel and asserted that airlines do not disclose these facts to their passengers, as reported by Metro.

According to Megan, tables, pockets, and seat buckles are some of the dirtiest surfaces on any airplane. She emphasizes that the aisles often contain germs transferred from the bathroom floor, so travelers should avoid going barefoot.

Additionally, Megan warns that the pillows and blankets provided to passengers are usually "reused, and they may only be clean for the first flight of the day."

Speaking of safety, Megan Gudgeon insists that the best seats on the plane are in the middle of the last row at the back. According to her, these seats are not always comfortable, but they have the highest survival rate.

Megan also explained the role of the strange hole that can be seen at the bottom of the window. According to her, it does not pose a threat to passengers during the flight but regulates the pressure in the cabin to keep the window strong and prevent it from fogging up.

The blogger advised her subscribers to always check for a life jacket under the seat before takeoff and to alert the staff if it is missing.

Additionally, Megan warned about the existence of a "secret latch," meaning that the toilet can be opened from the outside. So, be careful not to get into an awkward situation.
