I'm flying from Naples to London in 6 days, flight leaves at midday and I believe takes a couple of hours.
On the bad side, I'm worried about thunderstorms (you get a lot of them this time of year in South Italy) & consequently thinking about turbulence, being hit by lightning, etc. etc. which is NOT HELPFUL. :)
On the good side, I am going to try and make this flight go as well as possible, by doing the following:
- printing out some of the reassuring statements on the website to read as I get on board
- trying to remember that worrying does not do any good at all.
- concentrating on all the fun things I am going to do in the UK
- trying to see flying as safe and normal.
- concentrating on breathing well and relaxing the whole time I'm in the airport, and any time I think about flying.

Hi Leila,
brilliant news to hear of your flight.
I also experienced a living geography lesson from the air flying over the Alps - glaciated valleys, meandering rivers -fantastic- fluffy clouds against vivid blue sky- flying over the Atlantic for many hours may not be quite as interesting!
Well done,
Don't worry about it...just carry on as before.
I won't delete your new profile in case it cancels the first one as well.
