    I am flying in two weeks. Looking forward to seeing my mother but not the 12 hour flight plus all the time in the airports. LOL I am glad they are trying to recycle.

    I think about all those plastic cups every time I fly. It makes me sick. I am happy to hear that some efforts are being made to recycle. I try to stick to my stainless water bottle while flying.

    I never really thought about it while flying - I guess - I thought they probably did with all the newspapers, magazines, plastic utensils left behind. Interesting. I always loved flying with Jet Blue (free headphones), then I went to several other airlines, the last time I flew was about 3 years ago and since there have been so many difficulties with passengers and crew, airplane crashes and other malfunctions - I don't look forward to my next trip. So - I am thinking - I will take my newspapers & magazines with me. Thanks.

    As a retired flight attendant, I am a bit offended. Flight attendants try to recycle. Much as in the real world, it is the same one a plane. Many airlines do have specified bags for cans. Often flight attendants will put newspapers in a carrier or on a seat for recycling. Items on airlines are touched by numerous people from numerous areas. Taking your trash with you is one of the dumbest ideas I have EVER heard, so I can take it to a hotel with me, to a business meeting. Not feasible and DUMB.

      I misspelled. As in the real world, if a flight attendant recycles at home, that person will be more likely to try to recycle on the flight. Flight attendants have no control over what happens to the trash and carriers once they get off the plane. I have read down to some comments and several of you do carry your trash off the plane. I admire that, but it is not feasible for many people flying. A family of 4 going on vacation, has enough stuff to take off the plane without taking trash. (They could be a bit cleaner on the plane also.) A fellow flight attendant and I would bring several bags of cans off the plane after our last flight of the trip. This was before any airline had recycling bags. Leave your magazines one the planes, often flight attendants take them and read and/or use on other flights. Another form of reuse, recycle, repurpose. As in most things, each person doing their little bit in their part of the world helps.
