Flights sprung on me!

Hello all - i wonder if anyone can help...  i am generally feeling better about flying than i was previously, thanks mostly to this site and the dvd and book, and following 4 long haul flights over Christmas... but my husband has just sprung some flights on me, and I am feeling nervous because it will either be Air Mauritius or South African Airways - I don't know much about these airlines, other than financially Air Mauritius is not doing great at the moment but it does have a good…

why the fear

I was just wondering if anyone wanted to share ideas about the possible causes/reasons for fear of flying.  I recently did the other two 6 hr  flights (UK - Dubai and Dubai to Mauritius where we are currently living) and felt more scared than I did on the first 2 flights to the UK which i was really annoyed at myself about.  My fear started when i was mid twenties, and at the same time my life was fairly stressful, working full time, DIY on the building site of a house most weekends so very…

flights coming up

Hi there, i've got a bunch of flights coming up... a small atr air mauritius or air austral from mauritius to a neighbouring island , then later on four flights on Emirates via Dubai (each one 6 - 7 hours ish)... can feel the anxiety starting to build... can anyone assure me it's not possible to be trapped in a plane under water please - this is a big fear of mine, especially trying to get off with small kids in tow...  i think claustrophobia is the main thing with me, as we flew 13 months…

Dear Captain Keith

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the help and advice you and this site have given me ... i am feeling much more comfortable about my forthcoming flights than I would have been without reading your book/ watching your dvd/ and reading everyone's thoughts and shared concerns, and your replies, on here.

I'm not 100% happy and am sure I shall feel nervous and at times panicked on board - and if time and childcare permitted would have liked to have…

turbo props

Dear Captain Keith

I've just discovered I'm flying along with my family on a turboprop and wondered whether you feel just as safe as a passenger flying on ATR 72 as a 747-400... (i've got these two flights coming up shortly). Many of the safety features you mention in your book seem to refer to features present on board larger jet aircraft. I had a frightening experience on a turboprop once and have felt nervous of htese ever since, a problem with the rudder and we had to go back to… Continue

Hi there

I wondered if anyone knew of the cause yet of that Ethiopian Airways crash that happened a few months back... it's still on my mind that the plane took off in a storm, apparently a flash and it came down - all seemed so sudden and so horrific. I'm flying on two flights in around a months time - one 1 1/2 hour within Europe, then onto a tropical location on an 11 hour flight. It's not going to be relaxing as we're taking twin toddlers aged 2 3/4...and it's 24 hours of… Continue

HI again

I just wondered, looking at your book Captain Keith, you talk about the plane's ability to glide for 30 mins, which is really reassuring. Can I ask whether this is still applicable though during take off or landing? On my last landing it felt as though the nose was dipping down for a second until the pilot booted up the power upon descent.

Also you talk in your dvd about the planes' abilities nowadays to fly themselves' (bigger planes etc) - but this makes me…

flew safely

Hi Keith et all

I flew to Ireland on Thursday, back yesterday from Bristol with Ryanair and it was fine. I didn't really enjoy the flights though so a bit disappointed about that, when we took off on Thursday the plane climbed quite steeply, which I didn't like much, although it was perfectly safe, and then the seatbelt sign came on after it had gone off when we'd levelled out, which I panicked about a little, so i asked the hostess why, and they said something about wheeling the hot…
