Somehow, i feel that if the pilot was sitting right infront of me, i would feel secure because then i could see his expressions

I always look at the flight-attendants if something worries me. If they don't even blink, no worries. That helped me a couple of times when I heard unfamiliar noises etc.

Thanks alot for your words, i think my fear is a mixture of feelings. Its a mixture of the height, the speed and majorly the lack of control. Somehow, i feel that if the pilot was sitting right infront of me, i would feel secure because then i could see his expressions whenever i was feeling unsafe.this development of mine is fairly new, i have flown almost to every continent in my childhood thanks to my parents who are great travellers!
I dont know what it is, last year while boarding an SQ flight, i was just numb with fear, when they closed the doors, i was panicking like mad, and ofcourse that was despite travelling raffles class :p.
This year flying trans pacific again, i was kind of tense, but not as bad, i realised that a glass of wine does the trick. I have read up extensively on the prolem and it doesnt seem to be all that bad. Its just a silly mind block and the thought that u rarely hear of a disaster but what if i could be on the plane when the next one happens?

I got one word for you Lorazapam, trade name Ativan. It is a tranquilizer. It essentially prevents panic from happening. It takes away strong fear emotions. You are incapable of feeling fear strongly. It really is that simple. Aren't drugs great?

Just don't drink anything except water/juice or you'll end up being arrested like the passenger we had the other day who had a few drinks with them and flipped completely. She was running all over the terminal until the cops spear tackled her....lmao
