I'm sure you are not the only one afraid to fly. Have you ever flown before?

Don`t be afraid to fly... Statisticly, you are in a better chance of dieing driving to the airport than flying.  Smile

Flying is very fun, so don`t worry. And my favorite airline is Delta. www.delta.com

Yes, you are the only one.

Just kidding. My mom hates flying. My advice is: don't be like her. Flying is great fun (well, I shouldn't say that) and it's a unique experience.

Flying should be great fun, but the airlines sometimes make it a real pain. Where are you? (Nation). Airlines in the USA tend to completely forget that they are flying PEOPLE and start to think of us as cows.

"How many more people can we cram onto a 727?" is something asked very often here.

But other than issues like this, flying in itself is a great thing, enjoy it because flights never last very long it seems.

Flying is awsome and look at it this way if something happens to you it was bound to happen no matter were you are. And dont be scared during turbulence just buckle up while you are seated.
And my fav airline is TWA.

While waiting to board your flight, look at the people around you. I'd say a large percentage of them are scared. It may manifest itself as nonchalance, but they still might be afraid. BTW, what is it about riding in an airplane that worries you?

Flying actually is safer than driving. they make news about plane crashes because it happens a couple of times in a year. if they would make news about car accident, there will be tons! Statistic say you actually have to fly thousands of flight per year to experiance an accident, so don't worry!

Have a good trip, and enjoy..

The most dangerous part of any flight is getting to the airport, and that is a fact.

I am scared to fly(I'm sure you could tell by my user name) but I've realized that you are safer in the air than you are on the ground. Just think about how many airliners are in the air as we speak safely cruising at 30,000 feet. When I fly, I normally bring along one of my favorite CD's or a good magazine. That normally helps me conquer my fear. Have fun on your trip!
