WOW, I can't believe I got so many replies! you guys are incredible and really reasuring.
Just to make a point, in no way or form am I trying to make Mexico look bad! I am Mexican! Please understand it's just that when flying all sorts of creepy litthe toughts come into my mind! if it was another country (USA) I'm sure my brain would manage to come up with specific little worries for that specific airline as well...Didn't mean to offend anyone!
Thank's a lot for the info and the positive comments, I feel better, really, I am flying tomorrow! I don't fly that often (because of my fears) but I would love to come here often and share with you as well as to learn!
The idea one of you gave me of taking pictures of the trip is awesome! my cammera isn't exactly great tho, it's just a 2 megapixel cammera so the quality of my pics will most likely suck but I wil take pictures as much as I can.
The last time I was nervous about flying was when I took a continental flight from Monterrey to Houston, it was an Embraer plane and as I said before, my brain managed to start geting worried, even if it is continental, because it was a small plane etc...
I was worried and I came to this site looking for info on the embraer planes and read some threads about the plane and felt more reasured, needless to say I loved the embraer! The flight from Mty to Houston was REALLY bumpy cos there were storms all over the place and I really got nervous on the plane but there was a guy beside me and I managed to start a conversation with him and that took my mind off the bumping little aircraft but once I got off the plane I just couldn't help but love the nifty cool little aircraft.
I hope I feel the same way when I get off the MD
THANKS A LOT guys, each and every one of you have been an incredible help, believe me!
BTW.. any tips on what to do on a 747-400 flight that lasts 10 hours?! I've been on long flights before, on a Continental 777, needless to say, the 777 is awesome, I love it but I get so nervous on flights that I am unable to sleep... I flew from Houston to Tokyo, that was like a 14 hour flight, if you include all the time I was in the aircraft (grounded as well) I was well over 15 hours inside the plane.. so I know for a fact I won't be able to sleep either in this one.
I've never been on a 747 on a long flight, the only time I have been in one was when I was in Japan (same trip I mentioned before) I was going from Sapporo to Tokyo on a 777 but I arrived late to the airport so I had to take the next flight instead, which lucky me, was a 747! and I had allways wanted to be in a Jumbo plane, so I got into the Japan Airlines plane really happy but I couldn't really tell that much from the flight because it was a short one. Now I am going to be on a 747 (I think 747-400, I am not sure) from Mexico City to London, anything in particular I should look towards flying this plane?
one thing I noticed on the 777 when I flew to Tokyo was the incredible power the engines have.... since it only has 2
