No. But then again, I've yet to experience some of these horror stories of the plane lurching in all directions; there was a nasty bout of turbulence on a ZRH-LIS flight which resulted in anything not strapped in (including people) flying, and pax screaming/throwing up. But I didn't feel ill. Also had something similar on a Southwest flight into Orlando, I was at the back, several people in front of me threw up meaning I had to spend about half an hour inhaling eu de vomit whilst he biohazard was cleaned up.

Strange really, I have balance problems related to my hearing, so I thought I'd be more sensitive to changes in altitude/turbulence etc. Instead I sit there oblivious to the discomfort of everybody else.

Nope, not yet at least. I was a little worried yesterday on my Taca flight from MGA to MIA, though as I had gotten REALLY sick 2 days before we left at the VidaJoven camp in Nicaragua. But I did great.  Smile

And I've only seen one person get sick in-flight.

I only get airsick on long haul flights, or if I'm particularly nervous about something. If anybody gets really airsick there is a travelsickness pill that I take, called Bonine, I got it from PHX, I don't know if you can purchase it from other countries aswell. It works real good, I actually survived a 7 hour flight DFW-LGW without puking!

That's a 9 hour flight so that's even better.

For me I got sick and threw up on a horrible UA flight from ORD-SYR like 5 years ago. It was on a 737-200 and the weather and pilot sucked.

YES...unfortunately...!!!  Wink

During a flight in support of Operation Deny Flight in 1996 (?)...my fellow Surveillance Operator (CMSgt Santa Croce, Italian Air Force,...sorry buddy, but is was your fault!!!  Big grin Big grin) didn't feel too good...

After about 5 hours into the flight ( so about 3hrs on-station time...) he came running into the galley area of our E-3, while I was eating my lunch...he was already puking as he past me, heading for the toilet.

So...I got in line and used the toilet right behind him to clear my guts....  Wink

But in 2800 flying hours it was the only time....and the only time ever.

I haven't used one personally but on my recent trip to Perth a 10 year old child got up and ran to the toilet but he puked before he got there.

When I was 11, I flew New York-Orlando Intl- Song. Then I felt sick, but not physicly Sick, I just felt like it.

It would be an Interesting Question-
When people are sick on Aircraft, Are they normally Widebody or Narrowbody?
I would guess Narrow Body because of the confined area, but what are you guys normally sick in?
The Song was a 757- Narrowbody, So my only time sick, it was in a Narrowbody

Never been airsick or seasick. Never experianced anything more than moderate turbulance. Worst I've experianced was some years back flying aboard a C414 back from Wichita-contineous light to moderate turbulance for 100-150 miles due to weather. Didn't have any way to go around or over it so we just snugged our belts down and did our best to keep from wearing our sandwiches and sodas.

Never actually sick, although flying in very small planes can sometimes make me feel queazy. I went on a training flight with the SAAF once, in a Cessna Caravan, and the guy was practising stall turns, which was a bit vomiscuous, followed by 3 or 4 touch-and-goes.

I took a seaplane trip from Strahan, Tasmania, up into the wilds of woolliness, and that was very bumpy on the way back, I was kind of glad when we landed back in the harbour at Strahan.

I've only ever used a sickbag "in anger" once, and that was on a ferry, between Plymouth and Roscoff - euwuwuwww !! Deeply hideous.

First time I was really sick was in a VC-10 on a training flight from Brize Norton, doing circuits and bumps around Fairford. It was empty, no seats other than a row right aft. I was sick as a pig from start to finish. 3 1/2hrs  Sad

I was ill again on a Nimrod flight arranged by my wife for my 40th birthday. Spent the whole flight holding my head in the galley - another 3 1/2 hours, this time low level around the Moray Firth.

I got my revenge though. Sent her up in a glider flown by my boss. As he dumped the tow line he looped it - frightened the crap out of her Big grin

Strangely enough, I was sick in a C-130 when we landed at Incerlik from Cyprus. Mind you, that had something to do with being on the piss from 6pm to 3am and then getting up at 7am to fly at 8.30.

Anyway, not something I am proud of but, sick happens Big grin

Didn't actually get sick, but got really queasy today on a Cessna 152...my first flight in a PPL training course. Didn't really notice it until we were out of the plane, though. It was a hazy day...a little windy & bumpy this afternoon & some scattered clouds. I got really queasy on an Embry-Riddle discovery flight in 2001 as well. This could be a long couple of months...

Other than that, I've never been really airsick.

No, although I have experienced some nasty turbulences. Fortunately, I have a very stable stomach  Smile

I've never been sick on a commercial flight, and despite many rough flights I have never seen anybody throw up - thank god, because as soon as I smell it I am next...
BUT I have been pretty sick on a C172! The weather was perfectly sunny in VXO, but our pilot asked "do you want to do some stomach tricks?" We happily agreed, but after a few spins and stuff we had to get back to the groud quickly, else all three of us would have puked all over the plane. We made it in time, and we all recovered within minutes after having been back on the ground!

Fun fun fun

I'm with you there. Never been airsick. And I don't get carsick or seasick. I only felt a little strange when I was fishing in Grand Cayman. We were in over 1000 foot deep water in a 17 foot boat, and I sat at the bow staring into the water. After a while, I had to stop doing that because of slight discomfort. The only time I feel queasy in a car is when we are turning alot while I am reading in the back(especially if it's hot in the car). I have never really been through bad turbulence. I would like to experience some moderate sometime, that is if everyone else around me holds their lunch in....
