A lot of 'germ killing' could be accomplished if the airline companys would do training of the cleaners and PROVIDE disinfectants and tools to do the job right. At best, the aircraft get a fast wipedown with a dirty rag, no disinfectant or hot water provided. Broken sweapers and or floor mops that just move the dirt around. The company hires the lowest paid minoritys to do the job they could care less about doing. Poor supervision of the cleaners, NO inspections by any outside agencys like they do for restaurants. No hot water in the lavatories, no soap, that cost money, it's not in the budget.
Aircraft will never be clean if MANAGEMENT dosent' provide cleaning supplys.
If THEY want clean aircraft, management can get it done. THEY are in charge. The cleaners won't bring supplys from home.

This is another non-story. I often ride the bus between airports in NYC. I wonder how many germs are on THAT vehicle! If you are so paranoid about germs on airplanes, you should lock yourself up at home. Or you can take a stack of sanitary wipes everywhere you go like Mr. Monk! The fact is that the air in airliners changes at a much higher rate than most public places or other forms of transportation. The DMV,(where I just spent three hours with the huddled masses waiting for number B538 to be called), comes to mind.
