  • I HATE flying. Speeding along in a tin can way up high with no way of getting help in case of an emergency, no way out, and no easy way down if something happens freaks me out.

  • I have never flown. It's my biggest fear really. I don't believe I will ever get on a plane in my life.

  • I did after 9-11, In fact, I used to fly all over and I've only been on a round trip flight once since then. I'm feeling better now, but now I'm all shook up about the dern screening. I guess after trying it once it won't seem so bad.

  • Well, I fly A LOT and I used to fret, but when you have to fly alone with 2 very young children, well, there isn't much time for fretting, so I got over it. I have no problems anymore. And a lot of compassion for parents travelling with young children...

  • havent flown since right after 9-11. My dad passed away and i went back for his funeral. The whole nation was so traumatized by 9-11, I was in grief over my dad so I wasnt even thinking about that, but I'd be happy never to fly again if I dont have too.

  • I am so nervous of flying~~~the thought gets me nervous......i've never flown before

  • Flying itself doesn't make me nervous. I've been flying since I was about 6 weeks old. What does make me nervous is getting ready and getting to the airport. Once we're all checked in I'm good.
