Hey All - Was just curious on other peoples' experiences with flying?! Anyone have any really scary turbulance etc... I just really don't like flying at all.. but of course like to travel so just suck it up... but the minute there is a bunch of movement I start white knuckling my seat lol... FI LOVES to fly... so I better get used to it :)

I have been flying all over the US since I was little and often times as an un-accompanied minor. I have been in a plane that was struck by lightning and lost power breifly, however I am still completly un affected by it and fall asleep the second the engines start going.

 

it is crazy.

I hate flying - sux cuz i love to travel! But I feel like the older I get the worse Im becoming about flying! FI hates it too - he is worse than me

 

I really hate the whole experience - the stress of the airport, delays, lost luggage, taking your shoes off, being super uncomfortable, turbulence, kicking and screaming babies

 

Im waiting for the day we can teleport ourselves :)

Wow - those kind of stories actually make me feel a bit better... that is - if something does go wrong.. it most likely will still be ok :)

The flight attendant fell down and cut her head open and although she was not seriously injured she was bleeding all over.

It's not that I particularly like it, but I love to travel... and I travel for work. So, I'm a platinum flyer on no less than two programs (Flying Blue and Miles &More) - meaning I gather more than 200,000 frequent flyer miles annually.

 

I stress only in the airport, until I go through security. I always fear I will miss my flight ! After that, it's like a little vacation, a moment apart. I have my ipod, my magazines (I only read tabloids on flights), my bottle of water...

 

The nec plus ultra : flying business... it does not happen oftern, but then it's a party wink.gif Just getting in the plane and seating in these seats that completely lay down (in Air France)... and getting a cup of champagne... Samba !

 

Right now I'm completely obsessed with the lost Rio-Paris Air France flight. I'm awaiting the manifest (to be published tomorrow) anxiously. Some of my colleagues knew people onboard. It's so awful. I know flying is safer that taking your car (90 less chances to die), but when something like this happens, this is striking. Plus Air France is my preferred airline, so I'm anxious to know what happened.

I LOVE flying. It's a comfort zone, partially cause I used to work for an airline, and because we travel alot!!!! I think working for an airline I think really helps cause I kind of understand everything that is happening.

 

If you're really freaked out about turbulence sit in the row just on the back end of the wing, you'll feel it less there!

 

I'm also very interested in what happened w/ the Rio-Paris flight. Accidents happen and guaranteed whatever happened on this flight happened REALLY REALLY fast!

I love to fly and to be at airports and planes and travelling...hahahah I love even driving by the airport and watching the planes take off and land!!!

But the FI HATES IT!! I have gotten him to be a little better but he doesn't even like to get out of his seat, just nice and tightly buckled in!

I have gone through some turbulence that kinda felt like a rollercoaster...but nothing major!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
