Well here I go again. Off on my holidays in 3 weeks. Have popped on for a quick refresher! I do feel excited and positive. I feel my fear has gone, but then I don't think completely and I don't think it ever will. I've accepted that, but I would say I am in line now with most of the population when it comes to flying. You know a little nervous, but it's not overwhelming like it has been. The only thing that has got my mind going is I am flying from Manchester, which I am not used to and it is a lot bigger than Birmingham where I know everything. Also I booked my flight seats and the plane plan came up and it was seats in a 2, 4, 2 combination and I have always flown on 3, 3. I think it has all just threw me a bit. If I was going from Birmingham on the usual plane I fly on, I think I would be okay. But everything about it feels bigger. Bigger airport, bigger plane. It's all new and I usually stick to routine, rituals and knowing the plan. I feel like I am entering the unknown. I'm sure I will be okay. I've done so well over the years, I just....I dunno? It will be okay won't it?

Hi Fay. 

We nearly always go from Manchester, it's a great airport!

What plane are you on A330? Nice planes!

Hi Amanda,

It's a B767? Have you been on one of those? I have heard Manchester is a nice airport. I just hope it's not too busy and manic. I will just have to busy myself in the shops and try and forget it all eh. Any excuse to shop!

Yes you will be ok my DVD  star !!!
