Try not to think of the flight so much. Listen to music and read do other things to take your mind off it.

If you enjoy reading bring a good book with you and read the whole trip. It takes your mind of things. Works for me, I also dislike flying and had a fear of it but that seems to be gone more or less now.

you think you're afraid....once you get on it you will enjoy the flight. It's not scary at all. You look out the window and see the beautiful sky......ok i sound like a hippie. Dont worry dude. Im sure you will enjoy but bring a couple of magazines. Unfortanently, electronics are not allowed to be turend on as i remeber when i was 10 i think it messes up the plane signel or something.....

Don't think about it. The more you think about it and look into it, the more scared you'll be.

Just think of all the thousands of planes that are in the air at any one time, what are the odds of YOURS or ANY of them crashing?
#18
youre not afraid of flying, youre afraid of falling out of the sky to your death

even then, youre only scared itll hurt

k, not reassuring, sorry.

If you can make yourself yawn do it a lot, gum is also a good idea.

^You're an asshole. Does your mom tell you you're funny? She's lying. I'm embarrassed that you like Tool.

Keep in mind that planes very rarely "crash" and that even when they do, you are statistically more likely to survive than not.

Also, cell phones and other electronic devices do not and cannot interfere with the plane's gear. The only reason they don't want you to use them is because they are intentionally over-cautious.

your ears go weird and numb with the pressure changes - if you pinch your nose and blow hard, they pop, but that hurts. i recommend bringing a big bag of sweets to suck on, or lollipops. if you suck hard on something, it'll keep the pressure ok in your ears and they won't go weird.

the same thing happens if you go on the channel tunnel from dover to france, or go up and down big hills, or through tunnels on a fast train...it's not a big deal. just suck some sweets so it doesn't affect you. swallowing helps.

edit: about electronics - you're not allowed to use a mobile phone or a device with internet or blue tooth, but using a laptop, mp3 player or so on is absolutely fine. you're just not allowed them during takeoff and landing.

also, bringing something to read or sleeping works fine. it's a beautiful view if it's cloudy and your plane goes above the clouds, like being surrounded by glowing cotton wool with a bright blue sky above you

That never works for me. Last summer I went to Mexico with a friend and we left at like 6ish on July 5th. Well on the night of the 3rd I could hardly sleep because I was exited and then on the 4th I was out hanging with friends and setting off fireworks and stuff until like 3 in the morning and after that we drove to the airport, caught our flight and I COULD NOT ****ING SLEEP on the plane. That made for a really long day.

just dont think of it as a plane, really it kinda feels like a really smooth car ride with amazing views
my first flight was last year and now i love the whole experience, even the airport
#29
You know, you can take some pills for that. Its easy, you just take it a couple hours before you go on the plane and it controls the nerves and keeps you calm. Forgot what its called but thats what my sister is doing for the trip we are going on.

The psychiatrist prescribed it because she was terrified of flying

I love to fly, but I do it a LOT. I've been flying alone at least a few times a year since I was six, so it doesn't affect me much. I will instead give you things to keep your mind off of the plane ride.
If you like to draw or read, bring along a sketch pad or a book. If you bring an mp3 player and sit back and close your eyes, you won't even notice you're on a plane. And sometimes, you'll get seated next to interesting people that you can talk to. If you get a window seat, I recommend asking someone to trade, since looking out the window will probably not be a good idea if you're scared.

No, you just have to turn it off before they get up to a desired altitude and when they start descending.

i just flew in from florida last week and im afraid of flying but i got through it. the thing that freaks me out is how unnatural it seems. i got through it easily cause it was a 5. am flight, and i didnt sleep the night before, i managed to even sleep through takeoff.
#36
Honestly, once you get on the plane and take off, it's not that bad. I'm afraid of flying, but after taking a 26 hour train ride, I like the plane better.

Not 100% true. Cell phones can wipe out GPS reception. But the main reason you can't use cell phones in flight in the US is because the FCC has banned the use of them at 1500' AGL. It confuses the cell towers.
