Recommended Posts

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!

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
