1. Nice, your husband thinks it is safer but he doesn't go with you when he knows you are freaking out from flying. Cool. Hugs. How long is the flight? Don't give the children anything to eat half an hour before the flight. When the plain start its way the tummy gets loads of pressure so they can throw up. When you are on the plane don't give them too much drink or food. Don't feed them just to ease their behaviour. Take something to chew on so if your ears hurt it can ease the pain. Chewing toys for the kids are good as well. Take some books or an IPhone, IPod with music or fairy tales in it. So you can read to the children or make them listen some music. Find out if there is video on the plane you travel with. If yes, you are safe. You can just put a children movie on for the 3-year-old, so you only have to entertain the one-year-old.

2. Try not to show to them that you are afraid of flying. They can freak out because they can feel you are insecure. If you are lucky they will sleep the flight through. I am crossing my fingers. Put every paper you need in a little bag so you don't have to search for them in panic. Put some book, sandwiches, favourite toys, IPad, IPhone, IPod, portable DVD player (if there is none on the plane. 7 and half hours!!! You are gonna be my hero if you will be alive to tell the tale:D Lol, sorry, I couldn't resist to say that:) I am sure everything is gonna be ok. Just make sure someone will wait for you on the airport. Oh and there are sick bags under every seats. Flying with children is tough. I hate flying as well. I would rather drive.
