There's a scientific reason why tomato juice is so good on planes. The cabin pressure when you're cruising above 30,000 feet combined with the cabin humidity level creates a perfect storm for tomato juice consumption. In 2010, airline Lufthansa conducted a survey and found that they serve 1.7 million liters of tomato juice annually.

Everyone's gluttonous at 40, 000 ft on a long haul flight. They even eat every last crumb of that stale bread and a cheap dessert. Tomato juice is an elixir.
