Do You Feel At Home On An Airliner?

Hi,

Especially when no one is sitting next to you, do you feel at home on an airliner? I certainly do, it feels like you are away from everything and when you get served, it's just a place that you love. Sometimes, my flights are almost completely in the clouds and that makes me feel right at home on board a plane. So, do you feel at home while on an airplane?

Rgds,

I'm always nervous during takeoff. For some reason, I'm a little afraid during takeoff. But once the plane is in the air, I feel right at home. I just sit and stare out the window and think. It's almost like meditation.

I've gotten used to the fact now that riding in a plane is safer than walking across the street.  

Take-off is the most dangerous part of the flight, but the best too!

It's fun and frightening at the same time, especially when you're in a rocket like the 757.

I usually feel at home on a 3 hour plus flight, because you normally have time to recline a little bit and take a nap or go to sleep.

I never feel at home on a plane.....it's an irrelevant comparison.

Do I feel "comfortable" while in flight ?

Yes...no question about that.

I feel very much at home on an airliner, especially when I have a section of seats to myself, either the other seat in a pair or the other two seats in a set of three. When I am served, I can use two tray tables, so I don't feel so confined. Not having to share my space gives me a feeling of contentment that is unmatched in any other environment. It's too bad that planes are usually so full, and I don't get this feeling when I am crammed in next to people I don't know.

I felt more like being in a five star hotel, almost as good as home.

To someone who's not "one of us" this would probably sound weird, but I really do. I'm only 5'1" so I don't have problems with leg room even on smaller, more cramped aircraft. I have yet to take a flight longer than BDL-MCO, about 2 1/2 hours, but I can't wait, because every time I've flown, I've literally enjoyed every second of the flight, except my first time when I was just terrified until we got up where I couldn't see the ground (go figure). But I even ended up enjoying that flight, I guess, because my grandfather says that when he asked me what my favorite things about Disney World were, I said Jungle Cruise, meeting Minnie Mouse, and the plane ride. (Please keep in mind I was only eight!)

I feel particularly at home in aircraft on long flights; the cabin, along with audio entertainment, seems to become a world unto its own.

I definitly do!

Sometimes, though, the flights get to be SO dull and SO boring that all I want is to land quickly. You can only look at SO much high desert from SMF to DEN!

After almost 1.5 million miles on assorted airliners, they begin to feel like home anyway!

Although I take a childish pleasure in the sensation of flying, being stuck in the same seat (no matter how comfortable) for 8+ hours is not my idea of fun. I can think of any number of ways I would prefer to pass that time.
Flying to me is a means of getting to my destination. The flights I enjoy are relatively short, in small aircraft, at low altitude and in good weather (so I can sit with my nose pressed to the window and watch the world go by).
