Was a very smooth flight, almost forgot I was on a plane at one point!Funny story though.......... and lucky I know from lots and lots of reading what a 'technical problem' could be......When boarding the BA flight, I asked to speak to the pilots before we started.

Hi and welcome to this forum for fearful flyers. There is a page on the website that deals with the worries that you have listed

Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything you need to know about. I will always give you honest answers, and explain flying in a way that is accurate, helpful and interesting to you.
Please post your stories, videos and pictures to encourage others to share your successes and to encourage them when they need support.
We’ve got a lot of help and information on our website (flyingwithoutfear.com) and our shop has all the help you’re ever likely to need (Book, CD, DVD, Guide, Audio Courses).

I know that you will think that the longer you leave addressing your fear the better it will be for you. In fact the opposite is true. Look around the site and on this forum I can promise you that you will not uncover something that will make you more nervous than you are now. This site is written in a way to help you to overcome your fear.
We’re here to help you
Best wishes...and it would help everyone if you could add your location
