Ever wonder what really goes on behind the scenes when you travel? Recently a handful of flight attendants opened up to passengers about all the things us frequent fliers don't know.

Recently flight attendants did an “ask me anything” forum with travelers on Reddit answering the question “what don't passengers know.” The top rated answer advised passengers to count the number of rows between you and the emergency exit. She says in an emergency it will be hard to see and counting the seat backs will help get you to where you need to be.

Another important answer was to place one hand on top of the other when asked to brace for impact. Interlacing your fingers could cause an injury.

Other helpful answers were ones that people might not have wanted to hear. Tray tables are rarely sanitized so you should think twice about putting food directly on them. Or sometimes when a plane transports body parts of a cadaver to a hospital sometimes the liquids involved can leak onto luggage. Another tip; don't walk around a plane barefoot. Maybe ignorance really is bliss.
